UHF and VHF are both Motorola XPR5550 with handheld control heads.


Just My $.02

I have a Midland MXT275 and it's in a temporary mount.  Eventually, I hope to mount it behind the dash, with one of these bad boys or maybe one of these with a mudflap.  That's a very popular mounting method in Australia, since a lot of the UHF-CBs use 8p8c jacks for their handheld control heads.

I'd like to mount it with one of their dual-band fender-mount antennas; the intent is a really factory look with no sacrifices involved, or hole-drilling required.

All my vehicles have various APX mobiles as I am in public safety also. For strictly GMRS I also run the MXT115 in my fathers car and on my golf cart. I do run an XTL5000 at home, but also have a CDM1250 next to it that sits on my repeater channel. The CDM and 1225 are ideal GMRS radios.

Sounds like a nice setup, Jeff.
