Nice. I’m going to do something similar in my car with my 2 scanners and a remote head for a ham radio. My cousin is a welder/metal fabricator and is going to make me a powder coated steel plate to mount my heads on so I can mount it on a gooseneck AMPS mount.

Looks great, but I'd opt for black instead of white. It draws too much attention to itself. Is that easily removable? That setup would last about two minutes in most parts of Michigan. At the very least I'd have to drape a giant litter bag, or hoodie over it when I'd have to leave it out in public when I'm not around.

Interesting. I have to admit, I sure wish I could install equipment in my truck like that.

That's a pretty interesting set up! Can you give us any side shots so we can see what you and your friend built? Thanks!

Mike

Well done. Most hams do a crap job with tons of mag mounts. Looks good.

Nothing wrong with mag mounts if you're not installing a heavy mobile HF antenna.

Please don't start beating that dead horse here.. It's been tortured enough everywhere else.
