Just when you though you had seen the best in wire stands for the FT-817, those master German innovators Palm introduce the Peg-Leg.
Unlike the wire designs seen before, this design allows the user to fold away the stand when not in use. Better still they are so beautifully made that it looks like Yaesu put them there in the first place.
The Peg Leg has been developed to improve the operating convenience, such as display readout and access to front panel keys when using your favourite rig, the Yaesu FT-817.
It is an ingeniously made tilt stand, designed and manufactured in Germany. This useful accessory comes as a kit, and includes detailed mounting instructions and all necessary parts like washers, screws, etc. The legs are made of stainless steel and provide maximum stability and longevity.
Main advantages of the Peg Leg for the FT-817 are:
Permanently attached to the radio, that means you can't lose it or don't have to search for it prior to your outdoor activities.
Designed to be folded out for operation, tilted back for storage, and therefore out of the way when transporting the rig.
Comes with anti-skid rubber feet for both legs and self-adhesive rubber feet to be stuck on the rear area of the FT-817 bottom cover for non-skid operation of the radio.
Lightweight but sturdy design which uses stainless steel parts for the screws and legs, while high-quality nylon is used for washers.
Installation of the Peg Leg does not interfere with shoulder strap attachment.
All front panel controls remain accessible with Peg Leg installed.
The parts supplied with the Peg Leg kit are of the highest quality. Palm Radio assumes no responsibility for damage to the FT817 due to parts substitution and installers are cautioned not to over-tighten screws to the point of striping or for uses of the Peg Leg other than is intended
Does every thing it says on the box. Better than propping things under the radio Less chance of marking your radio So easy to use and pack for portable use. Should be standered on all radios
