I usually use a couple of Uniden portable UHF radios, in my 4WD.
I initially made up a bracket, that utilises the lug on the back of the radio, to hold it in place in this bracket, in the vehicle.
I then used to pass the microphone and pigs tail cable thru the handle on the A pillar, adjacent to the windscreen on my TLC, to hold the mic in place. This worked but the mic flapped about on rough tracks, and hit the windscreen.

I got to thinking of a better option for this, after seeing the truck drivers on "Ice Road Truckers", using a retractable mic holder and came up with a potential and cheap solution.
I had a retractable security pass retainer, laying about from some job I worked at, and I clipped it in place, behind the plactic furniture, at the top of the A Pillar, of my BJ73 TLC.
I then placed the part that feeds thru the security pass, around the cord on my radio's mic and with a small cable tie, to hold this in place, and Hey Presto, I have a retractable Mic Holder.
Here are some images of this set up.

Hope that helps

D'oh!
