I agree with the wires in the trunk, but why do I need a system control head? The Scan head does everything I want it to do.

Added some more stuff. The Top Orion has VHF/800. The bottom Orion has UHF/900. The middle Kenwood is VHF. In the dash is a Alpine FM/AM/XM radio along with a Unident BCD996xt, The Handheld on the right side is a 800 MR-K.

Looking real sharp! Gotta love the Impala for the big chunk of space for mounting radios and stuff.

Thanks for sharing with us..

Looks like a GE M-PA/MTL. Those were popular for 900 MHz.

Here is one of the more recent photos. Currently running 2M / 440 on the top head, 6M / 800 on the middle head, and VHF on the Kenwood radio.

Nice install....ram mounts sells a timer relay Called a safety-charge for $60ish...you trigger it by an ignition source. Than it runs off the battery fused line. I ran an 8 ga. Fused at the battery. You can set it for 1or2or3or4 hours after ignition is turned off. I run it on my truck. This way I never forget to turn off mobiles. The emergency vehicles run this device.
