I'm wondering if anybody has tried to modify their Typhoon H foam case lid so that a 4Hawks (or ITElite) antenna can stay on the st-16 when you put it back in the foam case & bag? It's not a huge hassle to take it on & off, but it would be nice to leave it on. Looking at it, it seems possible to cut a hole in the lid that the antenna would go through. I realize that that "exposes" the antenna to a degree, but for my circumstances I don't see that as an issue. It would still be covered by the padded bag lid. Looking at it from the side it looks like the antenna would protrude past the foam. With the st-16 out of the case I put on the foam lid & grabbed a couple of Xbox game cases to put on top to simulate the antenna & the bag zipped closed without problem. It seems to me that the top of the foam in that section isn't really doing much anyways. The foam nubs (yellow arrows) go down to the top of the st-16 & keep it from moving & the ledge with the white arrow is where the sun shield goes & would still be intact. It would be a matter of cutting out a rectangle for the antenna in the recess where the red arrow is. What do you guys think?
