I cannot personally take credit for this one - it was done by the local Moto dealer - ERS. This vehicle is used for our CEO. Not shown, 5/8 wave VHF antenna with GPS base on the trunk lid, and an 800MHz pig-tail antenna on the roof for the scanner. I will also upload a photo of keypad microphone too later. Will also get a detail of the remote PTT button attached to the side of the control head.

These photos show the visor mounted microphone, control heads for scanner and radio, passenger side speaker, and emergency foot switch.

Great setup! Really nicely done by the dealer. The only thing is I would step on that E-Switch every time I stepped into the car. Why did you put it there?

Because it was the best of the bad options - we wanted to go a bit higher but the anatomy of the vehicle ruled it out.

Correct - an XPR 4550 in VHF. We're transitioning from narrowband analog to Trbo. The plan is keep the existing analog repeater on the air at its tower site, and put the Trbo repeater on the air at a second tower site. While both cannot be used at once (they're on the same frequency) that does give us a hot standby backup system. In the future we may look at getting a second frequency pair coordinated for the backup site and switching it out to Trbo with IP Site Connect so the users don't have to flip modes when the primary system goes off the air. There's also a possibility we'll go with multi-site trunking ("Connect Plus") when it comes out in a year or so.
