Getting back to the radio...

Do you even need a detachable control panel? You could consider installing the radio like this:

Post some pics and redeem yourself... You might be Iron Chef, but those pics were about as gourmet as McDonald's

Back to John's question... is your customer licensed?

you both could have seen it in person at ICS. They've been changed for a while.

And my vehicle has never suffered the indignity of this:



say...

where do you guys like to install this in your truck:



Jay seems to like the dash or roof.
I'm liking the back.
Where do you guys put it.

oh.
that's right...

to my knowledge customer isn't licensed yet.
it doesn't matter to me one way or another, you can sell radios to anyone legally licensed or not.
he also does not a have a specific friend in Belgium (that I know of) but he wants to communicate internationally and chat or something like that.
My interest doesn't go beyond vehicle to vehicle communication.

I believe the FCC still requires a license.

But if you tell them it's just for fun and not for personal safety they might let you off... or they could make you drive all over to get your radio back.

Why? Did you discuss your lack of an FCC license with him?

Why would they? Steve Young isn't licensed either.

Well, supposedly he was. There was a Steve Young somewhere in IL that had an expired license and he claimed to be that Steve Young.

Why?

Because Steve Young is the long arm of the law.
A truly righteous guardian of justice.

I figured craig and aaron must be required to go to MAR with a pistol and TWO magazines as the final phase of their deputy-space-ranger-hall-monitor training.


sheesh.
can't a guy just ask for a little friendly radio recommendation around here?

Come on now Jack, you had to expect some shit after posting like you're God's gift to amateur radio. I mean, come on now...

Pretty heady talk from someone who isn't licensed installing a radio for someone else who isn't licensed.

I love how you try and spin my licensure as some kind of nerdy thing and yet somehow you're proud of using your radio equipment illegally.

What does this have to do with amateur radio use? Bringing the Shrier Cup into this thread is like trying to put out an electrical fire with a water fire extinguisher...

After all that you're wondering why you didn't get a simple radio recommendation?

If you had left it at that I would have heartily recommended the IC-706 MKIIG and we would have had a nice conversation about amateur radio equipment...

Just admit it, you need to get licensed and we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Also, check out the Yaesu:

http://www.yaesu.com/downloadFile.cf...lication%2Fpdf

and the HF antenna:

http://www.yaesu.com/downloadFile.cf...lication%2Fpdf

That setup should get the job done. Any HF antenna will raise the geek factor though.

Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely a big dork, but how on Earth is HAM not incredibly nerdy?
I mean it's about as cliche as chess club or space camp.
You've been to HRO right?

Sure, but I'm not an HFer... you won't ever see a 6m antenna on my truck, nor will you ever see a yagi antenna on my rooftop. I'm not into amateur radio as a hobby. Much like you I'm interested in vehicle-to-vehicle communication and emergency communication ability.

What I'm doing is what I'm obligated to do.

It's the same as obtaining a drivers' license to operate a motor vehicle.

You're reading way too much into a few letters and numbers, and using the nerd excuse to shirk your responsibility is weak.

Craig, I just checked that Gordon West Technician Class book, and it turns out that Technician (no-code) has full operating privileges on the 6m band from 50 to 54 MHz, including sideband voice, radio control, FM repeater, digital computer, remote bases, and autopatches, with a max PEP output of 1500 watts. The FCC site confirms:

http://wireless.fcc.gov/services/ama...atorclass.html

So we do have 6m privileges. Come on, man. Get that Icom 706 and slap this quad-bander on the roof rack:

http://www.universal-radio.com/catal...antm/2123.html

I want to get my General classification and have 10m privileges as well, so I can put that quad-bander to full use.
