Picked up a IC-2720h at the Peoria, IL hamfest last saturday and now am working on setting it up in my 2006 Ford Ranger. I will probably just put the radio under one of the seats but my question is if there is a good way to mount the head to the dashboard above the 2 center heat vents? I have the bracket for the head but would like not to drill unless I have to. Would velcro hold well with the cables for the mic and the main unit coming off of it? Looking for ideas.

Thanks and 73,

Jeff

Go to my web site, and read the Installation article. You also might look in the Photo Gallery for some suggestions.

I've got my 2720H head mounted with Velcro in my Honda element - no problems in 3+ years. t was in another car for 6 years prior. It does not get any airflow, hot or cold. The original mike cord on the 2720H went intermittentearly on , replaced it with a Cat6 network patch cable - had to  loosen a screw on the mike to do the replacement.
