« on: March 31, 2002, 11:12:01 AM »

I am planning to install an ICOM 706 and a Tarheel srewdriver on a my 2001 Suburban. I have downloaded GM's general recommendations for installing mobile radios, but am looking for anyone with experience or problems with installations in this vehicle.
I plan to install the transceiver in the rear, but trying to figure out where to put it. The wheel wells are covered by a plastic panel and I don't want to put it where it is susceptible to being covered up by luggage, etc.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Buddy,

Check my mobile set-up out at http://www.qsl.net/pa3duv.
This web site includes a number of pictures from antenna mount, bracket and equipment. If you want to operate on 80 meters consider an antenna design with a loading coil diameter of 3" or more. That will increase the efficiency of your antenna on the low bands considerably.
Happy Mobiling, Dick PA3DUV
