    I have been shopping online for a protective case for my Ft-818, but can’t seem to find exactly what I want. I need something small enough to go in my carry on pack. I plan to put only the transceiver and a sat phone in it. Any suggestions?

    Why not the Yaesu CSC-83 vinyl case?

    I want to protect the knobs during travel, especially the encoder.

    A hard case like the one's listed would provide pretty good protection, even if checked. I have traveled with radios and always just packed them in my carry on and used the clothes I was packing as the protection. Never been a problem.

    I have a neoprene case sold for Kindle, and Kindle-type, reading devices I saw in B Dalton bookstore.

    It flaps over the knobs, held in place by it's shape.

    I feel safe putting it in my backpack, to take out and connect up for my portable station "on site".

    Portable Zero offers a nice product

    protects encoder and ant connector.

    Good price point and I'm very happy with mine.

    I have a Amp3 pack, but I want the Portable Zero roll cage.

    Check out padded camera cases. They can be had rather cheaply.
