Very nice setup and nice crisp photos. It looks like the flash worked well. What 11-meter rig and mic is that?

Wow, thats the First "Big Rig" I have seen here. Nice! are there any lagality issues for Trucker's having scanners in certain States? or does the FCC Amature License over ride that?

I dunno need to reasearch more on that, but i dont make a big deal and show it off

Most States Make it Illegal in the furtherance of a crime, the big ones exempt you if you have a ham license, and since i dont do anything illegal, drive the speed limit, well i am not going to worry, my cdl is way to precious

Be careful if you get in IN. They almost arrest a fellow driver for having a scanner in his truck. They wrote him a ticket for haveing a radar detector and told him to get it out of his truck. He didn't have a radar detector but that is what they wrote him up for instead of taking him to jail

How about a pic of your dash taken from the bunk. Looks like you have some other goodies in there. What is that Sidetracker video monitor ?
