Where else do people favour fitting a CB if not in the dash?Jon Wildsmith said:I've never favoured that spot for a CB because the ventilation isn't very good but I only know of one heat failure when mounted there, guess it depends how much you talk and how good your SWR is.
Now I'll have to admit that's not a problem I've had to solve because my CB is an old Cobra which has nearly all the workings inside the mic with just a small metal box it plugs into that is easily hidden away but they don't make them for the UK any moreRichard Jackaman said:Where else do people favour fitting a CB if not in the dash?
I thought I'd read somewhere you were a fan of those .Jon Wildsmith said:EDIT: P.S. good choice of antenna IMO
Gutter mount works great for me! A permanent mount on the body or bullbar is probably better but if you don't want permanent, gutter is the way to go.Richard Jackaman said:Where would the best place to mount one on an 80 be? Not too keen on mag mounts as they tend to get shifted when offroad so might put it on a gutter mount either on the gutter or somewhere lower on the truck.
As fitted in my truck.Richard Jackaman said:Anybody got a CB mounted in the dash of an 24V 80 series? Either in the second DIN slot or a smaller unit to replace the ashtray.
Would be interested in any advice/pics of such a setup.
