• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Slowly getting radios into new to me vehicle.
Photo of initial install of the 536, wasn't happy with it bit far into passenger area.
The glass mount was an experiment, awesome on the 700MHz Trunk System, okay on VHF (but not great)
seems directional.
Dug out my "odds and ends" box and found my splitter to take advantage of the am/fm whip on the vehicle.
Better VHF reception. Glass mount left in place as spare.
Moved 536 into glove box, now it's can be up out of way(when closed) with passengers on board.
Once I'm certain it's staying there will hard wire radios.

I believe that compartment where you had the 536, and now have the other radio pivots up and toward the windshield during bag deployment. I'd not put anything too heavy in there. (Built those cars at Belvidere Assembly plant when they first launched)

Glove box should be safe. Worse that will happen there is it won't collapse and absorb impact as well. It's designed to absorb knee impact.
