Radio related translations

Last year(s) I made some translations from English to Russian. I strongly believe that these materials are important and educating, so here is the list in the original language.

PCB, Pack Complementary Board – concept, prototype, thoughts

Had a boatload of things to take care of. Showing some beta-version.

 

Widely known pack inserts, or organisational boards, have variuous features, so I want to make one to be suited to my specific needs.

I want to have a possibilities:

  • hold A4 papers in the flat pocket
  • attach modular pouches to the front PALs
  • put rigid insert
  • (later) have a compatibility with Tom Bihn “Rails” system, Matroskya and TAD attachments

Here is a prototype made from (s)crap materials, as clothing fabrics. So, it has terrible sagging on the top of open pocket due to the weight of pouch with thermos.

My plan is to make V-shaped entrance to flat pocket in the next prototype, so pocket wouldn’t sag.

Velcro on PALs placement – quick and dirty

Sorry for long lack of posts, I’m still here and even reading the blogroll.

I’ve seen at least two commercial solutions which put velcro surface over the PALs surface. Can’t believe it could happen.

velcro on the PALs

To make a single-cell wide three inches height velcro attachment point we need:

  • strip of loop velcro 6 (six) inches long and 1 (one) inch wide;
  • strip of hook velcro 3 (three) inches long and 1 (one) inch wide;
  • strip of paper about 4 inches long and about 1.25 inches wide.

Slip a hook strip under the PALs, slip a piece of paper over it, put a loop strip over the PALs and slip its ends under the PALs over the paper. Pull out the paper. Ha! Kiss your PALs goodbye, you’ll never get them back again, velcro will stay forever on them. Though, narrow knife or ruler can help, but it is questionably.
