Ben, Looks good. Did you remove the cover or run with it open? Spressomon, I'll have to check the 208h out it may be just what I'm looking for. Thanks for the feedback.
I'm going to go with the ICOM 208H...it has the smallest remote head of any 2M radios...I'm going to mount it right between the shifter and the ash tray.
I'm looking at the Yaesu FT8900R. One of the few multiband mobiles which include 2M/70CM.
Kind of pricey though.
My plan is to replace the stock double DIN CD/cassette deck with a single DIN CD deck and the HAM radio.
This one looks like it will be a winner.. No idea on price or the release date yet.
