    With the fender mount it looks like you can't use the engine access panel?

    EVERY wrecker had a radio, it's MUCH easier to coordinate recovery missions that way.
    Mine has the seat in it that the seat part flips up. Has 2 bucket seats. Not a bench seat. Of course a picture would be a great thing about now. Looks great.

    TB 11-5820-890-20-8 is for mounting SINCGARS radios, but placement is the same for the VRC 12 series stuff..

    Here is what I did with my antenna, I mounted it using the M900 series 5 ton radio bracket on the passenger fender. It's not as high as the "correct" M35A2 mounting location, and you only hit every other over pass...

    We had three M35A2's with RT-524 set up. They were for our ARSOP, Advance Recon team. The antannas were the Bain of German gasthaus beer signs. The tiny roads forced us to sometimes drive on the sidewalk. After we had several instances of paying for new signs, we tied the antannas down.

    My truck had a radio one and the antenna was mounted on the end of the bed far passenger side
    inside had the mounting holes for the radio mount I put a sincgars mount in it cause my 524 is in my Jeep
    thinking about moving the antenna to the raised convoy light pole on the drivers side since I only have 1 convoy light

    Guyfang, I decided to price out a "RT-524" after you mentioned it here yesterday. WOW ! Over $650.00 for a good used one !!!!
    Guess I'll stick with my "walkie-talkies" for now !

    Used to be that 'pvt jarhead' in Reno had completely refurbished ones for $400, but he went 'out of business' a couple of years ago. Fully equipped PRC-77's are approaching $400 (w/antennas, handsets, etc.). Mosr of the old stuff is now in private hands and does not get sold very often. And the newer stuff has to be demilled (think chopped in little pieces) so it's not getting out. I had an antenna for a PRC-320 get hung up in customs because of ITAR this past week.
