Re: Ham Radio Installations
I'm wondering, I have a '05 OBXT, is anyone running HF/VHF/UHF mobile out of their OB's, or considering this in the near future?
I am waiting for the new Icom IC-7000 multi-band mobile to be certified for sale here in the US. I plan to find a spot around the console to mount the head/mike section of the unit. It's rather small, any suggestions on on best locations for the head/mike and the main unit, routing of wires, & power connection?
On the HF side, anyone have experience with the "Outback" or "Perch" antenna's? I would like to install the antenna an a frame mounted bracket. What would be a good spot in general to do the ground and mounting.
I currently use a Larsen/Randal thru the glass dual band on my other car. Does anyone recommend a "best spot for the glass install?
Let me know. Lets exchange ideas, pros & cons.
