Default Where did you mount your UHF?

Hi guys,

Removed the din pocket and put it under the stereo, bought a second hand dash piece from the wreckers to cut into as well. the din width on the SF forester isn't quiet as wide as the standard

the radio and din pocket are held onto a harness with two screws each, really easily removed once the dash piece is off. just unscrew it and screw the uhf in its place, I've seen alot of people install uhf's in the ash tray holder, and with units where everything is on the mic just drill a small hole somewhere and mount the unit under the dash with the mic's wire comming out a small hole. the other goodie is a 20amp 12volt line for my inverter

99 foz

Here is the radio


And here is the aerial;



Not the best place for the aerial but seems to get pretty good range considering.

Yep, it's in the ash tray; that's just the head unit.
