My Truck

My Mobile Station and the Vehicle it is in.

The station is built around a 2010 Dodge Nitro 4wd. It packs a 3.7L V-6.

At the moment I have a 2 meter and 70cm capabilities. This is via a Kenwood TM-V71A Transceiver.

This radio is remote head capable so the radio is mounted under the passenger seat and the head is mounted to the dash in front of the A/C controls. The mic is also remoted and comes up between the center console and the passenger seat. Now the V71A uses Cat6 cable to remote the two pieces so it is easily done. I custom-made my on runs and then just added a ferrite bead to keep RF down along these runs of Cat6.
