    Patrick,

    I tried installing a Yaesu FT7100 dual bander today. I had a magnet mount I was going to use but the NMO mount broke out of it when I grabbed it to pull it off my radial saw head. Had to use a heavy duty lip mount on the rear hatch. Couldn't mount it on the rear hatch because the only straight edges on the sides are from the rear glass. I put it on the front hood and ran a test. The RF on the audio was really terrible. I will try again when the weather gets warmer here in South Eastern PA. I will try with the head attached directly on the radio. Need to make up a short cord. I think a lot has to do with the radio being a piece of crap. I have a few other radios around which I may give a try as well.
