Picked up a HB-1B from eBay a while ago. 

Internal battery. 4 band with extended receive.


The missing piece was a small paddle. Already had a paddle but heavy and easily damaged in the pack.

Decided on a Palm Pico for size and weight.




The paddle is wired backwards. The dat on right and dit on left. Not a issue for FT817 as can reverse the config in radio. HB-1B not that developed. Didn’t want to cut the lead so just installed backwards.  Works a treat.

More to come after field testing………….

    Allen, would be interested to hear your review of the radio and how it went in the field.
