  1. Antenna mount for CB/GMRS/HAM

    In the past I have wired straight to the battery, but I also saw that the icom wiring harness has a 15A fuse (manual says transmit is 13A) that comes standard, why wouldn’t a circuit rated for 30A be enough?
  2. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5357446 I still need to get the full set of pictures up... but, this is a good start.
  3. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    Here are the parts of what I worked up. I need to get a better picture of it in action, but... The first is the CAD drawing of the plate that's mounted (by heavy duty velcro) to the area above the aux switches/sunglass holder. It uses GoPro connectors to an arm, then another GoPro Connection...
  4. Antenna mount for CB/GMRS/HAM

    I have an icom 2730a. I didn’t want to create a hole in the firewall for power so I used our aux switches. Aux 1’s power is now connected to the pass through that goes to the passenger side kick panel. That’s where our radio gets power. As for the antenna, it goes through a vent flap in the...
  5. Radio (GMRS/HAM/CB) Installations

    Great install ideas. I have that exact same ethernet coupler (round screw on cap)... we're thinking we're going to mount ours just to the right of the USB outlet in the cubby in front of the shifter.
  6. Antenna mount for CB/GMRS/HAM

    I'm out of town for the week for a race event, but as soon as I'm back, I can get you that info. https://100aw.org
  7. Antenna mount for CB/GMRS/HAM

    AWESOME... Great to hear! I started with your version of the install, but the tire rubbed the antenna JUST enough that I couldn't unscrew it. Someone else showed me that there is a jeep mount that is a direct fit. It sits a little bit lower, but it's a bit closer to the gate so I don't have...
  8. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    I have one that’s supposedly FRS/GMRS/2M/70CM, but it’s a complete eBay special. I need to check to see how it actually does on the meter. My truck is NMO but the bronco is clearly not. Maybe I’ll convert both to the same at some point
  9. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    I mainly monitor, but occasionally I need to say something. We use 2M for coordinating our race events (https://100aw.org) but when I go out with jeep guys, other off-roaders, or Gamlers, they’ve mostly upgraded from CB to GMRS now… it’s good to stay in the loop as to what’s going on. Good...
  10. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    I got a 3d printer for Christmas, so I’m trying different locations and styles to see what works best for us. I’m hoping I can find of make something that just needs some double sided tape.
  11. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    I love those midland radios, but I use my 2M ham too much. I found a tweak for my icom to transmit on /GMRS frequencies, but I’m not sure how legal it is. I’d love if there was a true all in one radio. I need to find a better place to hang the mic. It ends up in a cup holder or my lap...
  12. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    Love it. I'm actually going to be adding an ethernet port (for the mic) just to the right of the USB outlets in the console tray up front. I'm planning on using a small hole saw and this Cat-5 Coupler, but what you did in your console is exactly what I did on my Raptor. I learned I hate cutting...
  13. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    UPDATE!!! I got a suggestion from Jpursuit that seems to solve my rubbing/fabrication issues. There is another mount that's made for a Wrangler that is a PERFECT fit for the Bronco Tire carrier. Sold By Amazon: Hooke Road Wrangler JL CB Antenna Spare Tire Mount Bracket Compatible with Jeep...
  14. Amateur Radio / Ham Radio / GMRS / CB and/or Antenna Mounting Solution

    Since I’ve seen this question so many times over the past few months, I thought I’d post this in hopes that it helps show a complete solution, rather than just an idea someone had. Here's what we did on my Fiance's Black Diamond 4D w/ Sasquatch package... We have an Icom IC-2730A. The radio is...
  15. Antenna mount for CB/GMRS/HAM

    I bought a set of 4... I have 3 extras I could sell... 🙃 I will say, I haven't heard back from the OP, and I've made it as far as running the antenna cable and modifying the bracket (all except for the actual bolt holes). I really need it to get warmer so I'm brave enough to go out and finish...
  16. Post Your Topless Broncos

    If that is the entrance that you were on... both pictures are facing east, which would mean you're North of the fence. I don't think I've ever seen anyone come through a gate there. But that makes more sense. I've rarely seen the sand that solid there. Love the Velocity Blue 4D (OBX in the...

    Thought I recognized that... just past all these signs... "No Stopping for Any Reason" Glad you made it out... a lot aren't as lucky after stopping at the entrance like that... (even if 4WD) Here is an amusing FB page for those who weren't so lucky. https://www.facebook.com/corollabeachidiots/

    We didn't get the package w/ the wireless charger, but dropped this in w/ a 90 degree adapter for the plug and it's been working like a champ. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WV1J8QL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  19. Am I the only one annoyed by interior storage?

    We got these for our sunglasses since we got the AUX switches (and because they were cheap, worth a try, and weren't the foam/clippy type) and liked them so much we got the for all the vehicles... https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YVQD4A2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&psc=1
