    I had a few beers tonight and started thinking...



    The lower two radios are short. The carputer box can go under them. I plan on putting a fairly large touch screen monitor above them. At least two of the radios are computer controllable. One might get swapped out for something a bit more modern at some point in time to add packet radio capability.

    I am going to weld together a mounting bracket for the whole thing and then make a console (probably wood) that will drop over it to make it look nice.

    In case someone wonders, from top to bottom...

    SSB CB Radio
    GRE Trunking Scanner
    ADI Vhf ham radio (might get changed for something else)
    ICOM VHF commercial radio with digital scrambler module

    Winter has substantially slowed any progress down... lack of a garage, and 12 inches of snow outside right now... another 20 inches expected in the next 24 hours... only a month or so to go until spring... then things will pick up again.

    Winter in snow climates does take the steam out of working on the vehicle. I can heat my garage quickly but it's still not the same. For a special project on a weekend, fine, but to heat it up for 2 or 3 hrs in the evening, it's just not that comfortable, the air temp climbs fast but the floor never warms up and the tools take a long time to warm up. I have spend most of the last 2 months working on the software on my PC via team viewer from inside the house. The truck sits in the cold garage connected to all the correct peripherals in the vehicle and connected to WiFi, and I'm nice and comfortable inside. I just leave a battery charger on it. Worked out great.

    I look forward as spring approaches to following your progress!!

    I was just thinking about this build the other day. I didn't realize your location but that certainly is a reason to hold off. Look forward to spring to see how you progress.

    So says latinmaxima, so it shall be!

    Hey Rickk, any progress here?? I don't think those radios are going to install themselves.
