Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

it works! I wasn't able to pick up any of the local repeaters or even the NOAA weather so I had a friend take a look at it for me. turns out the pl 259 wasn't making any contact so after that was fixed, it sounds awesome. he went over the radio's functions and all so now I have a much better underst...

Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

it's one with a set screw that you tighten to penetrate the insulation and make contact with the wire.

I got everything all hooked up. I just need to find a station so I can test it out. plus I'm trying to learn what all the buttons and knobs do still.

Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

well I made a bracket for the radio and got that all mounted up. all the cables and power lines are routed. I had to pick up some side post battery terminal extension so I can hook up the power. and I just picked up 2 fuse holders and a solderless (I know it's not the best option but it'll have to d...

ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

alright well I had to rethink my mounting location. my antenna cable is long enough to reach to the back of the cab but not the radio's faceplate remote cable so it's gonna have to go up in the front seat with me. I'm thinking the best spot will be on the passenger side of the center console (rig ha...

Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

I plan to make it out to the club meet next week and get some more good pointers. hopefully I can order a tuner soon and be on the air in no time. maybe I'll go ahead and fab a mount for the radio and run the power cables so at least that'll be ta...

Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

holy crap that's a lot of information. I'm tracking though, a whole lot of learning going on here. but yeah ok I got it..antenna choice wasn't the best. no big deal. I've had it for awhile so I won't be trying to return. I guess I'll just look for better options like you mentioned. although when you...

Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

hmm well that's a bummer since I definitely have a plain jane 706. (I'm a pretty big noob if you couldn't tell.) I was planning on getting my feet wet with 2m and then worrying about HF later (not even sure if I can operate HF with my technician class). would I need a separate tuner for both or is t...

Re: ICOM 706 Mobile Install HELP!

i hear ya. should i also put a switch somewhere in the cab for the positive lead?
i read somewhere how the power can fluctuate on vehicle startup and cause issues with radio since power is constantly being supplied to the unit.
