Enter now to win!

With over 3000 units sold, The Original Rigger is back into production after a 10 year production break.  This HT Stand does it all. Of course it’s a portable HT stand, with a handle for portability that doubles as a microphone holder, with space for a swr/pwr meter, and a shelf for that brick amplifier to boost your HT from 5 watts to 40, or a small lead acid battery for extended operations. Add an external antenna and your station is in portable mode.

It’s base is 1/4″ steel measuring 5″ x 5″ and a 16 gauge steel riser.  They apply 2 layers of automotive primer, 2 coats of flat black enamel, and one coat of clear acrylic to make sure it lasts for many years to come.  The last picture is of the very first production Rigger, and it is over 15 years old and has been used every day.  No assembly required.   With its heavy duty construction,  it won’t tip over and it always presents your HT digital readout and keypad in a most ideal position.

(radios and other equipment, not included!)

The Rigger is Guaranteed for life. If it breaks, accidentally of course, they’ll replace just ship the broken Rigger to them and they’ll ship a replacement back to you, no charge.
