I have used that Larson tri-band for many many years, last year I swapped it out for the new Larsen tri-band antenna, it's the same exact antenna with a spring and a more heavy-duty nmo mount.Hello Sir

So I just noticed you have press photographer plates. I always used them on my car. I had three different sets over the years. I'm retired now from a seven-day-a-week large City daily.
necessity is the mother of invention!
Awesome tanks for the photo! I love the Look Of The PA PlatesSo I just noticed you have press photographer plates. I always used them on my car. I had three different sets over the years. I'm retired now from a seven-day-a-week large City daily.
PA plates are only rear license plates normally but press photographer plates were always front and back. Only plates on a passenger car with front and back plates.
We also had stickers from the state police and city police departments. We would put them on the back window and were mostly for parking.
Just for s***s and giggles I'll send you a copy of what our PP plates look like.

The CA PP Plates were desingend strictly for fast law enforcement vehicle identification! When they first started issuing them Most officers did not even have two way radios. The CA PP plates do not afford any vehicle exemptions but we normally get a pass on illegal parking In recent years they have fallen out of Favor with the Big Media but us freelancers still love them!I've never heard of Press Photographer plates. I don't think we have that in Arkansas; if we do I'm not aware. Do they do any good? Like, does it give you access to 'scenes' that they otherwise would prevent a 'regular' vehicle from entering? Just curious if that's the purpose or if it is simply another type of vanity plate like a ham radio tag or whatever.
I may just do that I was thinking a Speaker mount but like having that behind me!This is the first time I've seen plumbing fittings used in a vehicle to mount radios or scanners. If it were me, I'd place a hose bib in the unused port of the tee. You know, just for the heck of it.
Humm a Budweiser TapUnderstand completely. I've used deck flanges and pipe fittings for a lot of projects. As an aside, my first thought was to install a fancy beer tap handle as a conversation piece instead of a hose bib but that wouldn't do the OP any good during a traffic stop.
