New CB location...

I found a new spot for my CB. I was tried of it being above my shifter so, I decided to move it to the back.

All I have left to do is run power to it.

What do you guys think?

Ok of the most part but how do you switch channels when you are moving, that is if you have to.

Where’s the power coming from ?

Where is the Antenna mounted ?

Have you tuned the antenna yet, what is the SWR ?

1. I dont use it that much so when I do its mostly one channel

2. The power is going to come from up front. I just have to rewire it from the original location.

3. The antenna is located in the rear of the truck. I am using Alons CB mount.

4. I havent had a chance to tune it yet since it is not powered yet.

The might be but, I figured its not like I use it every day so I would rather have it back there then up front getting in the way of my shifter.

Only takes a second to adjust settings.
