RT-524 and R-442A cover or covers wanted...

Post by mike_v » March 5th, 2020, 5:07 am

I did read all the threads on covers (canvas) for the 524 / 442 radios I have.

Unfortunately, few covers to be found and the eBay seller from Italy want $300+ for both his covers... :shock:

Seabee62 bought one but that was years ago... 8)

So, has anyone found a rectangular canvas or vinyl cover that fits well? I'm just looking for a "dust cover".

My measurements for both units (total) were: 21" long x 14" wide x 9" high.

If someone has a decent looking (and pricing :D ) cover or covers for sale, I'd be interested in those as well.

Thanks in advance.

I would think that a canvas top canopy(like for boat covers, vehicles)business could very easily make one.I had a NOS one a long ago, it got stolen from me, had it the radio, left jeep unattended.Famous last words!

That sucks Mark that it got stolen - especially how scarce and $$$ they are... :x

Yeah, I do have OD material, but was hoping someone found a mil surplus "bag" or cover that fitted pretty good... :wink:
