Kenwood TM-742A installation:



Can you spot the Ham radio?

Less than a week after I got my jeep I had a hole drilled in the roof

Not using a magnet mount helps keep the lines and RF clean

And for those low garages, this tri-band antenna has the fold-over option

Can you spot the radio?

Here's a hint see the mic on the floor

Now look right under the dash

There it is! Kinds a blends in don't it?

This put it in easy reach and does not block even the broadcast radio

The bulk of the radio sits under the back seat, along with the tri-plexer to split the signal bands.


I had the radio install at Ray's Radio here in Modesto. To keep the radio head under the dash cover I fabricated a mounting bracket out of aluminum tile cap strip.
