Portable Ultralight Radio DXing Case - March 2020


Jul 2, 2012
Recently I have been looking for a way to carry my portable radio collection and my other ultralight related items. I have used a variety of bags and cases in the past, my most recent case worked very well but it has recently become too small for everything I wanted to carry with me. I had added a bottom section to this for my notes but even with that I was struggling to fit everything in.

I was out doing some shopping yesterday when I called passed my local Super Cheap Auto. Here I found this new case for $50, I decided to replace my previous case as I found it was not working as well as I would have liked.

Last night I had some spare time so I sat down and set up this case. I have added some pieces of timber to divide my radios and give each of them a location.

Overall, I am very pleased with how well this case has come out, I am able to carry and store multiple radios, log sheets, pens, notes, spare batteries and ear phones, everything I need for portable sessions. It is also small enough to fit in my back pack. For $50 it provides a great level of protection.

While this case was designed for ultralight DXing the same ideas could be used for amateur radio, radio scanning or any other storage need.
