Radio Go Case - August 2017

Jul 2, 2012
Over the years, while involved in the radio scanning / amateur radio / ultralight DXing hobbies, I have used a number of different bags and cases for carrying my radios and associated bits and pieces. Some of these bags and cases have worked very well, others have not for various reasons.

I have again returned to my love of portable operation, this has meant finding a suitable carry case or bag for my radios to undertaken these activities in parks and other locations.
Based on my experience in the past, I decided to move away from a soft bag like I have used recently and started looking around for a hard case. This needed to be big enough to hold my Uniden UBCD436PT, aerials, chargers, USB cable and ear phones. The "lunch box" case I have been used has served me well but I wanted something stronger and with better protection.

Jaycar sell a number of ABS cases, based on the size I needed I decided on this model "ABS Instrument Case with Purge Valve MPV1". I was lucky enough to get this on special for $31.95, saving $8 off the RRP. The foam that comes with them is not great so I removed this and instead installed a divider which is wrapped in bubble warp, providing a good level of protection to my UBCD436PT. I also installed some bubble wrap in the base and used double sided tape to secure the top lid foam.

The below photos show my final setup, this works well, provides great protection to my UBCD436PT and is still small enough to travel with me in my back pack.
