    Digger, that kicks a**. Where did you hide the radio, and how do you select channels?

    Digger's radio is the cobra 75 WXST or something another. It has a remote mounted box where the antenna and power leads hook up. You hide this box where you want to and the display is in the mic. its pretty cool but they cost more than I was willing to pay. Mine is the cobra 18 WX ST II and its pretty nice. scanner, weather channels, front firing speaker... $73 to my door online

    Mine is located here. Because I need to be able to remove / reinstall it for camping. They freak out here if you have a CB they think your trying to catch them at something...

    I was thinking of mounting it where the Air controls are once I install my Expedition Overhead console, my Air Switches are going up top and that leaves me with a open spot down below.
