110W Motorolas for 10, 6, 2, and 440, and a 35W Moto MCS2000 for 900, plus a "10-meter" radio and two BCD996Ts. One day I'll un-cheap/un-lazy myself and lay down the $$$ for a SGC auto-tuner and a 706 or FT100.

For the antennas first is a Antenex CB144/440CS (Black) for the Kenwood V708A, an Antenex ABSCANS (Black) for the BCT-15 and a Tarheel M75 (Black) for the 706MKIIG. The Tarheel is 80 Meters - 10 Meters with the supplied whip.

The V708A and the Icom 706MKIIG are both remote mounted. Both radios are mounted in my truck with the head of the V708A attached to the Jotto Desk along with the BCT-15. The head of the 706MKIIG is attached to my cup holder in of my arm rest. All wires are hidden and can not be seen. Many, Many man hours are put into the install of all the radios.

Here is a crappy picture from my cellphone.

So I have to ask the standard question: Are you running all of that of a factory battery/alternator configuration or did you have to make adjustments ?

I like it simple

I am with you on that one. I also run a 1802m with a Workman 2m antenna on the driver side of my tool box, and a Cobra 19 ultra III, CB with a 60" whip on the passenger side.

That is it for now, may look at adding a remote mount dual band in the future.

Equipment: Yaesu FT-857D through a Yaesu FC-40 tuner into a trailer hitch Hustler MO-2 with 4 resonators (2 additional available), all of which can be moved between my Explorer and my XYL's Expedition as needed. Explorer also has a Kenwood TM-701 into a Larsen KG2/70KXPL. Looking to add mobile APRS, using a SANTEC 144 HT with OpenTracker +1 in the near future.
Logging System: XYL (N4YEI) with dry-erase and paper logs.
