Does anyone make a mobile mount for the Yaesu FT-817/FT-817ND? I am planning on buying one of these radios for portable/camping use, but they are small enough that if I can find a mount that allows for easy removal I might use it in place of my QYT KT8900 for mobile use, with the additional benefit of being able to use it in HF modes and not just 2m/70cm.

  You may be able to use a universal mount that is made for CB mobile radios.

Haven't seen anything likely, thus far...nothing that would do what I am looking for. The mobile mount for my old Kenwood TS-120S (which unfortunately there is no room to mount in my car) is more the sort of thing I am looking for. Secure, but I can flip a latch and easily remove the radio.

I recall the bracket for the Icom 22A/22S had a catch/latch you undid and the mount unhinged.  Haven't seen one in a while but it's a starting point.

Yeah, a suitcase type latch,  It worked pretty slick.  My IC230 I think had the same thing. Seemed like it was felt lined inside.
