Kenwood 2m/440 mobile

Went to a local Hamfest this past Saturday looking for a frequency counter for the cb. 5$ entry fee and drop the stub in the barrel. Well, this is a first. I won the Grand Prize. A new Kenwood TM-V71A 2m/440 mobile radio. But, I have to have be a ham to get the radio or they will give me a check for what they give for the radio. Been wanting to get my amateur ticket for years. Now I have something for motivation. I'm going to take the radio. So, now I'm studying for my test.
I would like to keep the cb (kinda new) in the jeep too, so now I'm lookin for a place for both. I'm thinking over head. Wow!!!! I'm still happy .

Cool!!!
Amy has her 2 meter radio mounted in an overhead console and her cb mounted on the dash.
I had both mine mounted under the dash but now I'm mounting em in an ammo can so I can take em out or lock em up easier.

I keep my Yaesu 2m/440 in an overhead console by Tuffy Security. Locks everything down but the mic. I have a Cobra 75WXST for the CB duties. Everything in the mic so you can easily secure it. Mounted the interface box under the passenger seat.

I have seen the overhead console in catalogs. Is there enough room for 2 radios ?

I built the one Amy uses. You could put 2 radios up there but it would be tight and not easy to use em both.

BTW, this site helped us get our tickets
