This lovely stand can be supplied blank or engraved with your callsign (£2.50 extra). The stand makes your FT817 the centre of attraction in your shack. Rubber stoppers keep the FT817 firmly in place. It looks great and works well! It would make an idea gift for a loved one or friend.
Your radio stand will be cut and engraved in our industrial laser. If you opt for customisation, your callsign withh then be hand-filled in Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue acrylic paint. We use a top quality paint A grade paint from Winsor and Newton. Once the paint has dried, the stand will formed into shape using a professional acrylic strip-heater. We take a lot of care to get a good result!
Don't forget to tell us the callsign that you want on your stand.

...but my callsign was etched using a much smaller font than the ones in the photos so it lost a bit of 'shack impact', but it does the job it was bought for.

I already had larger rubber feet fitted to my FT817 so it does not move on the stand at all. C/S on front does give it a class look.

Been using this for a month or so, had to use bigger rubber feet to stop it slipping. Also the aerial cable has to be just right as well. All in all I am quite happy with the stand.

STAND LOOKS GOOD WITH CUSTOM CALLSIGN, BUT RIG (FT-817) KEEPS SLIDING OFF. THAT LITTLE PIECE OF PLASTIC TAB STOPPER A) DOESN'T SNAP IN PLACE, HOLES ARE WAY TOO BIG, AND ITS TOTALLY USELESS B) WAY TOO SMALL TO HOLD RIG. C) RUBBER FEET SUPPLIED WAY TOO SMALL FOR RIG. I USED BIG RUBBER FEET I BOUGHT FROM MOUSER AND THOSE ARE FINE

This little stand really improves the look of the radio and shack. The rubber trim provided fits well and eliminates any potential slipping and makes operating much easier. I'm delighted with this bit of kit.

Great product! I just received this in the mail today. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package that the stand looked so nice. Excellent craftsmanship, fits my radio just perfect! I am looking at it right now sitting on my desk and I can very easily now see the display. I should have ordered one of these a long time ago. I have used all types of items to prop the radio up so I
could see the display. Not anymore. Bravo on a fabulous product.

This arrived within a day or so of being ordered. It is up to spec, being well made, no sharp edges, nice engraving and the 817 sits rock solid on it. The only reason I have knocked a star off is because the stand slides around on the desk. I have cured this by using non slip matting under the stand but ideally it should be provided with its own grippers. Nice bit of kit though and complements the rig, looks good.
[ADMIN - Thanks for the suggestion. I now provide rubber edging with the stand.]

I love the way the yellow call sign stands out from the black stand
