Incredible! Are you in emergency response or is this just for storm chasing or monitoring or amateur radio or what? I'm just curious. Very clean and nice!

Nice install. Nice console. I'll need one like that since Ford discontinued the short console.

Great looking install! Out of curiosity, how does one go about purchasing a new Chevy PPV as a personal vehicle? Im guessing this wasn't sitting on a dealer lot somewhere.

To answer some questions ya'll have had.

Purchasing- I am a first responder, certain dealers will sell a PPV without govt PO.
Antenna questions - I'll get a pic soon. I tried to go lower-profile than I used to be. There are 8 total NMO's on the roof, so..don't want it to stand out too much!
And it's a personal truck. I use it for responding as well and such, but I do communications work, so that / personal use is what I use it for.

Makes sense! Might as well be comfortable and have all necessary means of communication at hand.

Definitely would like a shot or two of the roof sometime - you know how we are, we like our antenna farms even if they're low-pro ones!
