I'm considering buying a Yeasu FT1500 for my Jeep.   The problem is that there is limited space for installation of the radio and I can't quite come up with a suitable location for an antenna (NMO type).

Any suggestions as to location for radio and antenna?

Put the radio in the glove compartment.  It's out of sight and out of the weather.

Larsen makes a nice stainless steel (painted plack) "L" bracket for NMO mounts.  You could install it in the groove between your hood and front fender.  Or, on your rollbar if you have one.

Larsen part No.  NMO TMB 3/4  B   (drop the "B" from the part number if you want the chrome version)

They cost $6 from      www.hamantennas.com  

I use one of these mounts on my car.  Works great and when you want to sell the car, you only have 3 small screw holes to fill.

If you need the mount & cable assembly, Hamantennas has them too.

Good luck,
Jerry
