The yaesu soft carry case for the FT817 neatly protects the radio, however the knob extension bar didn’t fit!, thankfully my wifey has a home/internet based sewing business making kids hats and other items, so i enlisted her in a button hole modification to the case. and this is the result!
Now my knob fits in the case! with the tip happily poking through! and everyone loves a happy knob! Thanks wifey!.
