Default ham radio install video - remote head

Hi all,



one of my old ham radio units in the car finally packed it in, so I got around to pulling it out and sticking a new one in.



The remote head went to the right of the steering wheel and I used super glue and magnets to mount it in place





I've used this technique for previous radios and they stay in place. the little magnets are pretty strong and it saves money on buying the specific mounting brackets etc





The main body of the radio went into the top section of the glovebox.

It has a fan that is quite loud but this keeps it nice and quiet, plus it was unused space for me .






In the video I also cover off getting power wire etc out through the firewall from the cab











and how to route coax or any other wire from the engine bay/cab up on to the roof.

You could use this for power wires for lights if you wanted to.







Whilst this is a ham radio, the same options should be available if you want to stick in a cb.



any questions let me know.



I'll also add the video to the sticky in the gen 4 section here

and of course the video.

Thanks John,



problem is, I just stumbled across another radio that I accidentally ordered which needs to go in .

I think this one is going up in the sunglass holder thing on the roof.

need to start getting creative for the 4th radio I think .



thanks for the compliment mate, glad it helps.



cheers Brett

"accidentally ordered"
That sounds like something you tell the wife ?
What did you accidentally order ?

exactly right John

A DMR radio. its a cs800 . I've been enjoying DMR of late and looks like we're getting a repeater in our area soon, so hopefully my accident will pay off.
