    I like the Cobra 75wxst due to its compact size. The control box is under the passenger seat. Everything else is in the mic which just lays in the front cup holder area of the center console.

    They all look great , I want to keep it compact and not visible , a lot of times I could be in not the greatest areas for work around Philadelphia .
    Thinking about a K40 magnetic antenna was allways a good choice considering the antenna unlocks from the base .

    My magnetic antenna kept getting knocked over and scratching the roof. I went with a quick disconnect.

    I ran one of those K40 mag bases in the center of the roof for the first few months I had my radio. Worked great until I got into the woods. But regular road and highway driving were never enough to tip it over.
