• 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:

You are truly not a radio fan unless you are constantly changing out your equipment.

The in dash unit is a Pyle PLD7MU 7" touchscreen system, the others are (top) Icom F5061 VHF, (middle) RH96 to my 396XT used for 800 and (bottom) Kenwood TK-830 UHF. All units, of course, are remote heads.

I just finished putting in the head unit, so I'll get some more pics up tomorrow - including the antennas!

I have one of the ICOM 5061 units for 2 meters and like it a lot in that application. Interesting that a dedicated Moto-man has only Icom and Kenwood, for now, at least.

Phantom antennas went bye-bye as they just were not making the trip as well as the 1/4 waves. (I may put them up for sale - 1 each VHF, UHF & 800 MHz)

The seat covers are actually a gray color, the camera makes them look purple! :D

Bubba Bear usually steals my Mountain Dew while I'm driving!

Wires were easy to hide as I was able to pull the console out and run them underneath.

Yeah, as a Motorola man, I have started drifting away from the dark side. I still have a pair of XTS2500 UHF and a pair of Saber III UHF in the stable, but I also have a BK VHF portable and a TK272 & TK372 portable! I may be having a Motorola sale on my Spectras as I think I have either 3 or 4 of them in boxes!

Wasn't me. I used to have the Georgia Flag license plate on the front and not only did someone steal it, but they stole the bracket as well!
