    I've never had any trouble with coaxial cable runs that are parallel (or even bundled together) with other wires. As long as it's good quality cable (95% or better shield), and the shields are...

    I've tested my 43qt Edgestar under controlled conditions and found it's power consumption to be well within the average for similar-size fridges. You are correct about the power cord & socket...

    I knew a guy years ago who did that exactly to a Cobra 148-GTL :Wow1:

    I think the '91-'01 Ford Explorer (Mazda Navajo) can be added to that list... Like the Bronco, parts are everywhere. Also like the Bronco, they have very nice interiors and a comfortable ride, And...

    Edgestar 43 here. Coming up on 5 years now and it's been great.
    Search 'Edgestar mods' or something similar, there's been a good amount of discussion on these fridges here.

    Hear hear... I have two that are very close relatives to the Explorer (a Ranger and a Bronco II).
    I wouldn't trade either one of them for anything else similar, even starting over again (at most I'd...

    If the mount is screwed directly into the metal and is solid, I'm not sure that a ground wire to it would improve things much. A continuity check should reveal if there's an issue though (wiggle the...

    I'm with AlbanyTom. If it does provide any improvement over your little FRS radios, it certainly won't be by much.

    Of course I checked the SWR... Always been under 1.5:1, and very often under 1.3:1.

    Again, it's about proper grounding of the rack. If you go and attach a single ground wire to one corner and then...

    I've mounted antennas to racks of various types and not had problems with them (both for CB and VHF/UHF). The key is to have the rack well-grounded to the roof or body in not just one spot, but in...

    Many (most?) can be mounted horizontally, though you do give up a lot of their rated capacity that way (I recall something like 50-60%, without actually looking it up again).

    That's some nice work for sure :cool:

    Yeah, you want a small size, lowest-current fan you can find (less than 0.05A or 2CFM, if you can find one). It doesn't need much air current to keep the air...

    I think the comment about LEDs was about them affecting the receive (many LED lights are indeed very noisy, as are HIDs, too).

    As for the antenna, I think there has to be something simple that is...

    Agreed, a K40 is a very good antenna, if a bit expensive.
    I've heard of rain getting under magnet mounts eventually affecting the car's paint, but not of it affecting antenna performance.

    I spoke with a VisionX rep a couple years ago... Unless things have changed since then, they use 6000K LEDs in their lights. BD is 5000K. Ideal appears to be much lower, around 3500-4000K, given...
