I have noticed particularly on my ubitx radios that the raduino board is just hanging on the 16 pin connector. Very bad engineering to not have a mechanical mount.
The other day while putting together another radio I decided to make a mechanical mount for the raduino. I used 12 mm long 3mm screws and nuts to hold it together. It is using stock front mounts with the original screws replaced by 12mm screws.
I think it is a worthwhile modification. The part could be made from metal but was easy to make from plastic.
I am going to make another one for my bitx40. I imagine that the length will be different.
