CB mount

I use the Cobra 75. It has a remote mount for the main part and just the microphone is visible in the Jeep. I love it and like not having to worry about the main CB being in the Jeep. Also, it is more secure because I disconnect it when not in use, slide it into an old tube sock, and lock it in the tuffy. Here is a link to it on Cobra's page.

This is the one I have too, and like for all the reasons you listed.....except the cord is heavier than I'd like, but I only use it 2-3x a month and it was free

Just a reminder...

I'm still working on the CB installation write-up I am doing for the forum. It is almost done, but I can't keep my attention on it long enough to get it done.

I will send it to deverhart and khenderson when I am done, because I think they have plans for tech write-ups...

They are both consoles I designed and made.

The console with the larger CB was made last year. I took it apart when I designed the other console to see where I could make improvements. I am finishing up on this console



later this week. The aluminum front panel will be replaced with a steel panel as soon as I get the metal bent.

I have more pictures for anyone interested on my website @

http://www.otrattw.com


I'm retiring the design to work on consoles for larger radios with locking rear compartments, or dual radio designs after this.

Probably the wrong forum but I'm selling this console:



send me a PM if you're interested.

(if this is the wrong forum, just delete this. thanks)

Thanks, I had a good time designing and building it.

I just need to remove it from my Jeep so I can test out something new.
