I must thank my buddy John (AE5X) for this excellent tip.
I was watching one of his YouTube videos some time ago and noticed that he added fold-out feet to his Penntek TR-35.
Like John, I appreciate my radios sitting at a bit of an angle as I operate and these fold-out feet looked like the perfect addition to my TR-35.
These feet are designed for laptops which are much heavier than the TR-35 or pretty much any similar field radio.
They arrive in a small package with an alcohol wipe to clean the bottom of the radio. The adhesive pads on the feet are made by 3M and high quality. I doubt they’ll ever fail. Since they’re designed to allow airflow under a hot laptop, I believe the adhesive should withstand hot summer days in the field as well.
What I really like about them is that the have non-slip pads on the end of the feet that work both when they’re folded out or folded in. It keeps the radio from sliding around on a smooth surface like my shack table.
The operating angle is perfect for me.
Thank you, again, John for the tip. These retail for about $10 US on Amazon.com. I’m sure there are many other types of stick-on, fold-out feet out there (feel free to note others you’ve used in the comments) but I’ll admit I do like the quality of these and think they’re worth the price.
