Another Ham Radio Install

Just a few pics of the install of my Icom IC-706MKIIG.


Control Head location



The radio mounting location, behind the passenger side rear seat. We have the back seat down all the time, so no over heating issues.



Antenna location. I didn't want to install into the roof of the truck, and limit the amount of drilling in the truck itself.



Coax cable routing from the antenna. I had no extra coax that came with the Larsen install kit. I would have routed a little different, but in the long run it turned out ok.



Power line routing under the hood.



So there you have it.....yet another radio installation.....I know, yawn, right?

Not boring to me

Nice, clean wiring job (something I'm not good at). What are you using to secure the antenna cabling?

In the bed of the truck, I used a 1" x 1" adhesive mounting base like below and zip tied to those.

Nice install! What kind of bracket did you use for the antenna mount?
