    Sweet, I thought about putting a president in my truck. Then i realised that i clean the interior with my pressure washer....so i guess i will stick with the Uniden or Cobra lines.
    No power supply yet huh, Does it really require 20A. If so you should really be able to get out and drop the maul with it.

    I should have my Astron RS-20A, 20 amp power supply monday. Don't know if I really need a 20 amp unit, but I got a good price on one. I was told a min of 15 amp power supply for this radio too work propperly. It has been modded. Has over a 50 watt swing on the meter over at my radio guys place. Should do pretty good with the IMAX-2000 ontop of the 40 foot tower with the 15 foot of mast. :D I wanted a nice radio I could use in both the house and the vehicles.
