    Crazy ham radio install

    I figure the hams on this forum will appreciate this. It's that time of year again where my local club hosts it's fox hunt. Well, unfortunately it got cancelled, but not before I finished this project. Last year, I picked up a KerberosSDR in the first run on whatever crowdfunding platform it...

    Airbag Location--Safe Mounting Spots

    I want to mount my ham radio control head (about the size of a thick piece of Texas toast) on the dash somewhere. I looked in the owner's manual for airbag locations, but the picture is not clear as to where it's safe to cover a small part of the dash. I'm thinking about using a...

The cell phone dock closes and you can't see anything. Drilled a 1/2" hold under the front console area to route the control cable...

    Have Any of You Put a 2M Ham Radio in Your Car?

    I've pretty much always had a ham radio in my car -- makes travel really fun, and it's a good way to communicate with the wife. Since I don't have a car yet, I'm unclear on a couple of things.... Since I don't want to drill a hole in the body for the antenna, I'm thinking of a Larsen...
