Greetings to all.. the biggest barrier for many ham's I have spoken to has been the lack of room to mount their mobile radios in newer vehicles. Newer vehicles lack the room to mount your wonderful radios, yet you refuse to develop a removable head option when a perfect example to copy exist. The Motorola CDM-1550 series has a great method to extend the control head with a minimum of fuss.. even a ham can do it. Please give this some consideration... MANY ham's will thank you.
