First I am cheap. Then I am unemployed. And lastly it is foolish to travel to the next big city to find a padded pelican case and pay for it as much as the kit costs, AND as much for gas money. So an old Tupperware brand food container was used. See, I do try for quality when I can!
So I started with placing a carton sheet on the bottom of the box, and continued by laying the items, and marking the dividers position. Then I removed the carton, made the dividers and glued them on. Then I proceeded with gluing thin packing foam sheet.
With a bit thicker packing foam I covered the bottom of the compartments and I also cut a covering sheet by the same material.
And I ended up with the following. Not pretty, but functional, and easy enough for your kid to do.
Here are the contents arranged.
And one cannot avoid a pic for the gear junkies.
Items in numbers are
- My DIY 7.2V battery pack.
- My DIY multi-voltage battery eliminator
- AAA battery pack
- 7.2V cable
- 12V alligator clip cable
- 12V cigar lighter cable
The rest of the items are easier to define. They are the original antenna, an aftermarket Nagoya longer antenna, an assortment of connectors, a hand mic and the headset that comes with the radio.
BTW the writeup for my DIY power accessories is here.
