    @thefatkid had an antenna he liked mounted on hood lip by windshield. Think Eric (Gramps) was running the same set-up.

    I do believe I have the same setup. I can always hear you guys fine, but you've said in the past my transmit quality is not so good. Originally the bracket was not grounded, but have since ground down the paint on the back lip of the hood where it clamps and I think it has since gotten better? I can't hear myself, so you'd know better than I would. Was it any better at eagle rock compared to last year?

    I'm running this setup on my 4runner with no transmission/reception issues. I'm on the right corner of the hood. I didn't use the paint protection pad so my allen/grub screws pierced the paint. I sealed the area with a dielectric spray. I will be moving to the roof/roof rack here soon when I eliminate the CB, it hasn't been on in over a year. Will get a dedicated FRS/GMRS radio as it seems that is where the unlicensed communications are shifting to.

    I'm just using a mag mount on the roof.
    I don't actually do much with it, but hit all the nearby repeaters fine.
    My radio could be set up as a repeater if you wanted to charge around with handhelds like when hunting or something. Sounds cool, haven't done it.
    It can monitor CB but can't transmit AM

    Next weekend I'll be going through Denver and up to Estes Park. What local repeaters should I monitor on my way through?

    Yeah but I only use my phone these days. Digging out a laptop is harder than programming them into the radio itself.

    too bad you can't simply post the frequencies or a link or something and have the author of that file add them. :rofl:
