    Maybe I watched the original one too many times.
    The second one was partially filmed around my way in western MA. I thought it was hilarious after a few wobbly pops.

    Man I actually had to work hard tonight. Maximum effort all day. No machine running, just setting tooling. So I'm passing on OT tonight. I'll be back tomorrow. Have a good night!

    Those things pick up emergency services transmissions like a scanner? I’m very unfamiliar with radio technology.

    I just looked at it. Can I take the base off and screw it into those mounts?
    Have a good one
    I assume that's a pretty expensive one?

    @gixxerphil must have misunderstood you the first time. It'd be a different antenaa to put into one of those mounts. And you'd have to hog out the material a little bit to get it to fit. No big deal. I'd have to look back into the clean cb/VHF radio set ups to find an antenna for that. It's in there somewhere.

    And yeah that radio isn't cheap. Haha. But I did the buy once cry once approach. I know I'm into this stuff now so I got a drop proof, water proof handheld that does dmr (worldwide) and I can also use the front panel to punch in whatever local repeaters I want. The nice part is that my mobile rig in the truck can cross repeat. So if I'm camping in the woods and hook up my backup battery to the truck, I can go camping 5 miles into the woods with my handheld and use my High power radio in my truck as a middle man. Or if I'm out on the boat and need to tell the Mrs I'm going to be late . Haha





    Nice! I was looking at those too. People seem to really like them. I only went with mine because of the waterproof feature and that I don't need to go into the menu to enter an analog frequency.

    If I really enjoy this HAM stuff, I may just get a radio for the truck and then use that hood mount. If not........IMPULSE BUY :rofl:

    Max has me looking at CB's now :rofl: I think this one would fit well in that little cubby to the right of the steering wheel.

    Woah woah woah. I have nothing to do with cb. I thought you got that cb mount for a CB radio.

    Bunch of maintenance for me this weekend. Hopefully installing that bar that @Fitzwilly so kindly sold to me. Also doing the aftermarket 3 switch pannel into the cubby hole for the 3rd gen conversion. Using the 3rd switch hole to put a keystone in there and I'll just be able to plug my mic into that when I want it and put it in my cubby when I don't.

    And then there's all the zerk fittings on the control arms to hit + deal with the squeaky leaf pack. About to hit fall camping and fishing season at full force, so it's time. All while battling this cold thing. I'm a glutton for punishment

    Well. I couldn't decide if I wanted the driver or passenger side mount, so I bought both :rofl: I figured one for HAM and one for CB :D
