View Full Version : A little something I threw together.

I have moved my FT817 to my computer desk and found it hard to see. So I started cutting up some 1/4 inch (6mm) Baltic Birch Plywood. And this is what I came up with. A happy accident it that the battery I use for portable fits inside it and since it is open on the back side I will be able to just insert the battery in and hook it up.

Nice setup there Steve and looks like your receiving some big signals on 40M. I have an MFJ-971 ATU but as I have two 817's I'm tempted by the LDG Z817 ATU as I believe that covers 50MHz (6M).

That's a nice compact stand Steve. How is it to use. I don't think I could handle my VFO knob that high off the desk!
