    Of course.. Ordered last night.

    Need to figure out what antenna though. I think i always heard putting it in the middle of the roof was the best place, in which case I'd do a mag mount.

    If hard mount i could make an easy mount for one on the bed rack.

    Probably grab a seat mount for the screen since that's the only option.

    Dubbed the "pipe bomb". I got it from HRO here in town. Pricey for sure. Radio is getting hooked up next weekend to see how it does. Brian @thefatkid has good luck with it so far.

    I did get the RTsystems software. I couldn't get it to program with the cable. I used the method where you swap the SD card. CHIRP doesn't list a program for that radio but there were some claims of getting it to work with the FT 350 software. I didn't want to risk any bunk software because I modded the radio and had no recourse for warranty.
