Pros: Remote mount so nothing big and bulky on Dash. Wide band I can monitor lots of frequencies besides Ham Band. I use it to listen to CB, FRS, GMRS and public service while on the trail.
Cons: The noise floor is pretty high when the jeep is running.
Comments: I like the radio, I mounted the head down low over the Pass. Air Big Switch cause I won't ever need to turn it off. It is easy to control from this location. I mounted an Ext speaker on the roll bar up by my left ear to make for easy listening and the wife doesn't have to hear it.
The radio makes a great trail Rig, I can talk on 2m, 440 and 40m, and monitor or listen to CB which is commonly used on the trail rides in my area and listen to FRS/GMRS in the area and the Public service bands for LEA, EMS and other agencies.
