This is designed a lot like one of the stands that I print.I like the 3D printed cradle. I may create one for my PSR800 and print it on my little used 3D printer.
I made the one in the attached pictures using a 2.75" wide strip of 0.05" thick aluminum (an old mouse pad I got as a promotion from somewhere). Total less than 12". The aluminum is easy to bend without metal forming equipment, just a couple of pieces of straight steel, a vise and two c-clamps. No fasteners used. I added some small steel plates from an old phone stand for weight and some salvaged non-slip rubber feet. Took all of about 30 minutes after finding the materials. The radio sits at 30 degrees from vertical.
I have another one like it I made almost 30 years ago with 0.10" aluminum but it is in my office and that is not accessible due to CV-19. That one has nicer edges and bends since it was cut and formed on sheet metal forming equipment. That one served will with my PRO-43 and AOR AR-1000 scanners. I need to figure out how to get it back to my home office.
