FT-857D travel container

When trying backpacking the FT-857D, I simply placed it in a plastic bag and stuffed it in my backpack. While this works it does not protect the radio from accidental bumps, and wet weather,so looked for a travel case to put it in.

In the end I found a suitable solution, a plastic click lock type container used to transport food.
A 3.9 litre container, found I could just fit the radio, power lead and microphone in the case, if packed just right. Leads tuck in to the side, and the microphone in a bit of a gap.

Able to close the lid and snap lock it in. As a tight fit found the radio won't move about at all, so good for transporting in my pack or in a bag for portable operation.
