Not sure, but I have one to install, my thoughts were antenna above drivers window up high an set at height just over the height of highest object on roof, just in case I encounter a low obstruction it would warn me, coarse this will bring lots of conversation why do you want one, an all that, but I have lived all my working life,42 yrs of it in a cab of an 18 wheeler, lots of friends across America, I know I am old school but if someone had a toad problem I would surely say something, or just to say , hey your looking good, I would set channel at 33 or something not to hear all junk out there an in small letters on toad window what channel your monitoring. My antenna is a side mount, where to mount radio itself is a problem cause it's so tight on drivers left side an surely don't want it on dash , maybe it would fit in that side pocket, I am about to pursue installation,will post back what I did.

Hey Harley Driven... did you ever install your CB yet? If so did you do it yourself?

I have given it more thought, with out sitting it on the dash, which I am not a big fan of, we in the freight business use a radio box, still have mine sitting in garage, some drivers got real inventive an made great looking wood box mine just happens to be aluminum , anyway toying with idea of just sitting it on a piece of carpet or rubber mat an sit on floor next to me , plug into cig. Lighter. That way I could just throw it in basement when not traveling

I have a friend that is a cross country trucker. He tells me he rarely hears chatter on it now. He misses the traffic and road condition updates.

Driver side. Above my head coming into cabinet Side mount. Using a 3' antenna , adjusted just to clear height of a/c. Not looking for distance,couple miles maybe. Using one of those no ground antennas for motor homes.
