I Have a new F250 coming in shortly and i want to put a recently acquired DX 70 in the cab. I have looked at w9iix products, but I wonder what others use for mounting radios these days.  I've never been HF mobile in 35 years. Ultimately I have the DX70, a 2 meter FM in the truck.

You have a lot more to worry about thanjust the mounting of the radio.

You might want to look at these.

I am also looking for a mobile mount.  I repeat the question, what else is available besides W9IIX?

Saying there are other problems does not answer the question.

Thanks,

Tracy

I recently installed two mounts in a Dodge truck from Geotool. They are machined aluminum, then anodized, and fit tightly into the stake pocket. This is a very fine product. Their web site is:

Dear Dave,

Thanks for the great tip on mounting your antenna.  What we're looking for is some tips on mounting the RADIO.  That radio thing is different from the antenna thing...

Thanks!

Check with your local two way radio
shop.  They can put you on to all
sorts of radio mounts, the rage these
days are between the seat consoles.

Dear Ronnie,

Thanks for an "on-target" tip, and it sounds like a good one!
