CB Radio in HHR

Post by PA_Ridgerunner on Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:49 pm

Does anyone have one in their car and where is it mounted ? I have a Cobra 19 Ultra III and would like to put it in my HHR.I'm going to mount a GPS in the compartment in the middle of the dash,so that place is taken.I could maybe mount it in the center between the visors,but that would leave holes in that area when if I took out the CB.

The NPS has there radios mounted there.

I cheated because I have a Panel, I mounted my CB behind the apssenger seat to the front of the storage compartment. I mounted Ant in place of the OnStare ant. on the back of the roof, which is the same place the NPS put there ant. I just used a power outlet cord to power my CB from the rear power outlet.

What? You wan tto see photos, well Ok.

My radio is way smaller than yours.It is 6 1/2" long x 4 1/2" wide x 1 3/4" thick without the mount.Seeing your pic I may just mount it on top of the rear of the center console above the cup holder.I don't use that one anyway.And as you did I can use the power outlet below it and run my antenna out the back and onto the roof.Do you ever get a leak where the antenna wire exits through the rubber door seal ? I had a magnetic antenna in a car and ran the wire out through the trunk and always had a little water seep into the trunk either when it rained or in a car wash.

My antenna wire runs tru the inside of the car to the to the antenna, which is mounted thru the hole in the roof where the OnStar antenna was. there was another small hole too, but I pluged it with silicone.



This is my Panel, note antenna near rear of roof.
