September End Update 2023

Hello Everyone,

A not so small update for everyone.

The BP-Y14L will be in stock again this weekend, likely Friday evening. 

Desk Cradle - The cables were delivered. Now I need to tweak and finalize the desk cradles dimensions. I hope to have these listed sometime in October for sale.

Icom ID-51/52, IC-705 - The prototyping phase is now officially underway, and I'm actively engaged in the intricate process of designing the locking mechanism and ensuring a precise fit. Notably, a particularly intriguing challenge has emerged in the form of the two 'teeth' on the ID-51, a unique aspect that was not initially foreseen but demands careful consideration and innovative problem-solving.

PolyPucks - I have restocked on these. Both complete and kit form. I uploaded my attempt at an informational video on the puck. You can watch it on the products page. 

Wire Winders - I have restocked on these. 45 Orange and 20 black, with more on the way.

6ah Portable Battery Packs - I am restocking on these. I have 11 in production now.

BARCfest 2023 is just around the corner! I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be in attendance, bringing along some fantastic deals you won't want to miss.

I invite you to drop by my booth and say hello. Not only will I be showcasing a wide range of enticing products, but I'm also offering an exclusive swap fest discount that's bound to make your visit worthwhile. I can't wait to see you there!


I'm currently collaborating closely with a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) designer to engineer a bespoke solution for our battery packs. The objective is to develop a cutting-edge PCB that boasts Power Delivery compatibility and is capable of supporting a charging rate of approximately 2.5 amps, nearly twice the speed of our current models. While the realization of this endeavor remains to be seen, its potential impact is significant.

If successful, this development would herald the advent of the next generation of Yaesu battery packs, setting a promising precedent for future innovations in our product line. Notably, this advanced PCB design will be more compact in size, enabling its integration into packs designed for 18650 batteries, such as the Yaesu FT-70D model. The potential implications for enhanced performance and versatility are indeed noteworthy.
