Hi, I wanted to share with you this little addon to a Kortwich bag I made. The issue was, that you cannot see the display (with RF, level, eventually battery information) when the Evos are in or on the bag. Also, the bag-walls are a bit thick for the sensetive Senny beltclamps. So I took some plastic L-shape profile out of a hardwarestore, some black tape, some Tesa Velcro, and a bunch of "cold shoes" (is this the right term?). The holder is still somewhat in a beta stage, but works not bad. The caveats are: - You can't really put the Evos (and therefore antennas) upwards for better reception. However, if I have the bag on a table/cart, sitting in front, the antennas are upwards and everything is optimal. -If you bump into something, there is easily enough force on the Evos to shear the little pins on the base of the CA2 that keeps it right-angled. They still work, but I'll have to retighten the screw once in a while, when I touch something, e.g. in a dense crowd. If I make a new version, it will have some sort of hinge with adjustable friction like on a french flag. That way, the default position is upwards, but a look on the displays is just a flick of the wrist away. Whenever bumping into something, the Evos are not the first thing to be touched any more. Sorry for the bad pic quality.
