New friend followed me home
Found a Cobra in a lease turn back today. Been meaning to get one for awhile, but couldn't really afford it, so this turned out GREAT. This is going to be used, more for a "toy" than anythign else. Mostly for when I am stuck, maybe some offroad parks, helping people when they get stuck etc. Even though I won't be using it a whole lot, I wanted to make sure the sound quality and reach was as good as I could afford, just incase I really needed it one day, so I spent about 50 bucks (minus the speaker and mount). Specs of what followed me home:
Cobra 25 LTD ST
Wilson Silver Load 4ft 1000 watt 5/8 wave antenna
"Diesel" (Company name) Heavy duty antenna spring
"Diesel" 18' Mini 8 cable
ordering a bumper mount tonight, and I have to pick up an external speaker tomorrow. Forgot that part :p
As long as I wire it up good, get a good solid ground, and keep the cables away from each other and interferance, I should be good right?
Ditch the spring........bad idea. If you need flex, for your antenna, get a short steelie......:D
4' Wrks well for me i need the fold down though I have a QD but don't like it. Put everything together and get the SWRS checked and you should be good, Heck even if the radio has bad finals I think there like $40.00 to get replaced.
