Portable Zero Accessories

In the past few months I purchased a few radio accessories from Mike W0MSN at Portable Zero

My first purchase was the IC706 Escort for my Icom IC703. I ordered the Escort directly from Mike and had it in my hand in only a few days. The product was as described, easy to install and attach to the radio. Service and shipping from Mike was fantastic.

So I was looking for and in the market for a good bag for my Xiegu X108G, tuner and accessories. Well the X108G is not much larger then my FT817 so figured this would work just about right for the radio allowing me to take it out in the field. So looking at Mikes Portable Zero sight I was thrilled to see The Sherpa Bag.
Mike’s description for the bag is as follows:
“The 817 Sherpa Pack is the perfect way to transport your Yaesu FT-817 transceiver, tuner and accessories. Order item 817-SP”

817 sherpa pack

I sent an email to Mike about my order, he replied asking what my address would be to ship the radio and then I was sent a PayPal Invoice in very short time. I replied to Mike and within a very short time I had confirmation that the bag was being shipped out Friday morning, it was just after 2:00PM on Thursday that I placed the order..

I look forward to the Sherpa Bag arriving and allowing me to take the X108G outdoors in a  nice all in one ready to go kit.

I thank Mike at Portable Zero LLC for his efforts and his quick and speedy service and top quality gear.

    Was wondering if the new radio I ordered and arriving the 1st week of Sept. 2016 (Yaesu FT-891) will work on the PORTABLE ZERO frame?

    After receiving my Corona Virus incentive check from the Feds in May, I decided to treat myself to a new QRP rig. I ordered a new Yaesu FT-818nd transceiver, an LDG Z817 tuner and a Talentcell 12-Volt 12-A/hr LiFePO4 battery and charger. The crowning touches were an 817-ESG escort with stand and a Sherpa pack, both in OD Green, from Portable Zero. I also painted the tuner and transceiver cases matching OD green.
    The whole station came together just in time for a late Field Day outing at a local park. The Sherpa pack is great and easily carries all the above gear plus my key, tri-band HT and wire and coax HF antenna. I am very happy with the fast service and quality of the accessories I purchased from Portable Zero. This little all-band, all-mode HF-VHF-UHF manpack rig, under a thousand dollars, is as much fun as a commercial military rig costing twenty times the price! Thanks, Portable Zero, for some interesting, inovative products! 73, DE WA4A
