Gmrs radio

I picked up a Midland MXT275 gmrs radio and found it fits nicely in the console. I used the power outlet for power, and drilled a hole for the antenna. Works very well, made contacts at 17 and 25 miles away with the mxta26 +6db antenna

I like mine as well but never went that far for testing, good to know it works on repeaters at that range with the extended antenna.

Looks great! Was considering installing mine under the dash on passenger side but this looks like a better idea. Thanks for sharing!

Are you closing the center console door on the coil? does it close and stay shut?

Mine is in the glove box but not permanately fixed just Velcro down, so I can move it to other vehicles when needed, ghetto rig I know.

I did the same with my box but ran switched constant power and extended the mic to a homemade port in the tiny dash cubby. Itís a great set up having all the controls on the mic.

Mine is Velcro as well for ease of removal and setup in a go box.

I actually used a dremel with a cylindrical grinding bit on the lid where the mic wire comes through between lid and console. The straight part before the coil is what comes through. I just leave the mic in the front cup holder currently.

Nothing wrong with that! I agree , all controls on the mic was honestly why I chose that model Gmrs radio

Just got mine last week, still looking for mount + antenna. Are you using their 4R hood bracket? Does it still tilt forward or can it be easily bent back?

Trying to work a comment plan for the TuRD. GMRS is good for... A closed network? Are they used on the highway like CB radio in the olden days?

I use it in off-road groups and caravans on road. Has worked better for me than CB generally. Ive used both and gmrs is easier with good range. If you want to talk to truckers I suppose they still use CB. I occasionally got some entertainment on the CB but Iíd rather listen to music.
