Introducing the ultimate radio combo-pack, big enough for the serious DX crowd. Take your IC-7000, FT-2900R, Yaesu FT-100, ICOM IC-706MK2G, or similarly sized mobile radio outside and put it to work.  The DXpedition Pack is combined with your choice of the Radio Box or the Radio Pouch to carry your radio in padded, secure comfort inside the full sized daypack. Now you can carry your radio and power supply along with the antennas, tuner, cable, wire, splitters, and miscellaneous accessories, and still have room for your lunch and a jacket! Models are also available to fit the larger FT-897 or the smaller FT-817.

Inner dimensions of the Radio Box: 17¼"L x 8½"W x 3¼"D* (440mm x 240mm x 90mm)

*These are "soft" dimensions. This case is designed of laminated polyethylene board, closed cell foam and nylon which offers both impact protection and a degree of flexibility.   Therefore, if your radio is slightly larger in one dimension or another, the pack can still fit quite well.

The semi-rigid case construction of the RadioBox is firmly secured into the DXpedition Pack by wide Velcro, but is easy to remove and carry by its nylon webbing handle, if you just want to carry the basics. The Radio Box can be opened and used as a perfectly serviceable operating platform outside of the pack. It keeps the radio clean and off the ground.
