They say "necessity is the mother of invention". I have been moving my UBCD436PT around the house a fair bit of late as I have been doing various things, I had a mobile phone type holder which I have used in the past with my UBC126AT but found this was not heavy enough to hold the larger UBCD436PT and stop it from falling over. I was recently at Bunnings and found some metal plates which I thought I could use to make a stand.

I bent the top plate until I got the angle correct for my radio (this would vary for different radios due to size and weight), cut out a section for the belt clip to sit in and wrapped it in tape and then attached the top and bottom parts with some small bolts. Total build time was about 15 minutes.

Over the past few days I have been using this, it allows me to use my scanner at the correct angle. While this was designed for a radio scanner the same idea could be used for almost any handheld radio with a belt clip.
