    Finally bought it and installed it last night. Let me know what you think...

    Here it is installed as flush as possible with the dash. The bracket to hold it is custom and mounted to the top panel of the ash tray assy. I also had to cut and modify a portion of the stock air ducting to get the CB to sit that far back in the dash.

    Here is a view of the 102SS Whip installed on the toolbox. The total height of the antenna from ground to tip is 14' 6" :D

    The whole setup was bought from Frank at 1 Stop Electronics just the other day. He tuned it up also. Got my first contact from a guy about 20 or so miles north of me. Sounded very clear both ways.

    The SWR's right now are around 1.35 on Ch1 and 1.1 on Ch40. I am going to adjust it today.
    Yeah i have been on Franks forum for a year and a half or so. I also buy all of my comms gear from him. He is a great guy to deal with....plus his shop is about 20 miles from where i live :D
