KE8AFF here! I run an Yaesu FTM-400 XDM ( 2m & 70cm) and a Uniden 980 SSB CB Radio in my X. For the Yaesu rig, I ran the power leads and the coax thru the firewall via the clutch delete plate. Drilled holes in the little plate, placed some rubber ring grommets in the holes and then ran the power leads and the coax thru them. Antenna is a Comet SBB5 ( http://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-001570
) on a Comet 3D5M UHF Mount (http://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-001408
) on a Homebrew Aluminum Fender Bolt Bracket that I made from an aluminum strap purchased at Lowes then Plasti-Dipped it Black to match the X. As for the CB its " no to a high standard" per se.... Uniden 980 SSB Under the front passenger seat plugged into the cig plug on the rear of the center console and attached to a Wilson Little Will Antenna with the coax ran out the ( *insert cringe here*) back hatch. Also have a handheld Uniden 996T digital trunking scanner to keep tabs on the bears hi hi. I do have some plans to make some upgrades once the fund become available ( had to replace my auto lockers with WARNs). Would like to install a Mobile Scanner and antenna, and run everything off of a rig runner under the seat. My current setup works pretty good for me. My Dad is also a Ham and has essentially the same Ham Rig Setup. The We keep in touch pretty easily with the ham rigs as the CB range is pretty limited. It's also pretty sweet to be able to see exactly were he is using APRS and to talk thru an echolink node all of the way across the country... Now if you want to get into it even deeper, you could install an HF mobile rig but personally, Id rather keep that for a moment when im not driving. I started off listening to my dad shoot skip on the CB in my younger years that progressed to scanners and then one day i was looking for scanner freqs and saw an add for hamstudy.org. I looked into it, it caught my attention, and i was hooked. Studied up, took the Tech Exam, then Upgraded to the General Class, then this January I took my Extra Class exam and passed. Everyone is talking about having to pay to take the exam... if you look in the correct place, you can find license exams free. I know that here in Ohio, Delaware County offers free exam sessions ( that's where My Dad, my uncle, and I took ours and they are a top notch group of VE's I tell you). Its not hard, just study good, relax, and go take that test. Yes, CB's do have their place .... they are especially good for aoviding traffic pile ups by listening to the radio traffic from the truckers and other CB'ers on the highway.... when it comes to long distance, HAM is the way to go.
