    Will be installing a dual band Yaesu 2m/70cm this week on the pasenger side tunnel wall and am contemplating the best way to feed it power ( only 50watts tx) and where to run the antenna cable and place the mount , any likely rf problems that need consideration?.I intend also leaving mounting for an FT8957D pa in the trunk and the face mounting and cable under the dash somewhere (suggestions) , now I don't wish to hole the body for an antenna base and am looking for a suitable mount as there is no tow bar atm . A bar might be required yet to mount a screwdriver , so guys suggestions please (yes two radios two bases)

    It would of been easy if cars still had gutters but seeing as they don't anymore you could either adapt the roof bar slot to accommodate a mount or(yes i know it will look crap) you could fit a single roof bar and mount it to that.
    Other than that you are pretty well stuffed if you don't want to drill any holes.
    The only other way is use a mag mount.

    Looking I think I can make a mount from stainless sheet bolted to a retaining bolt on a front guard in the bonnet gap which is tight but possible , of more concern is potentual to interfere with the electrics as a couple of hundred wats of rf on HF might cause problems . Certainly this has to have been done before surely ?
