Easiest, or best?

If you want CB to be powered by key, use hot wire for cig lighter. If you want CB to have power all the time, and you want to less static, run power & ground wires to battery directly. Just be sure that your power wire is fused as close to the battery as possible.

I ended up just cutting through the firewall and connecting it to the battery
