FT-817/818 cover

When I go outside into nature, I always take my Yaesu FT817ND with me in my backpack. That way I can enjoy low background noise (QRM) while listening to distante broadcast station or listen to fellow hamradio operators on the various amateur radio bands.But one thing has hapend to me a few times is that the rig switched on because I packed my bag to full and something pressed on the power button.

Inspired by the LDG Z817 front cover by zauberertz (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2966084) I designed this cover to prevent this cover. My base design has lines so you can create a yellow/black pattern indicating hazard warning.


it's still work in progress but the latest version works very well an can be used with the standard straps.
