Ham radio install

Installed my Kenwood TM-281A 2 meter ham radio a couple months ago but just got around to taking pics. Ther radio is hanging from the footman look as you can see. I just used a couple cable ties and some nuts and bolts. I didn't want the mic hanging above to I ran a Cat 5 cable into the dash and put a jack in below and to the right of the steering wheel. An angle bracket and some screws finished the job. My antenna is a 48" Firestik on a mount that uses the spare tire carrier mounting bolts and sets the base of the antenna about the same height as the third brake light. I'll add a pic after lunch. This isn't the most secure, obviously, but some special fasteners on the radio mount will sure make it hard to get away with. Maybe if I recover from the furlough I'll buy a Tuffy overhead console.
