Breaker 1-9, anybody got a copy? Any discussion or mods relating to electrons and wires go here.

FInished up installing the ham radios yesterday.

Yaesu FT-891 for HF and Icom IC-5100 for VHF/UHF/DSTAR.

Mag mount on the roof for the Icom, and an ATAS 120A mounted to the hatch lip for the Yaesu HF rig. Couldn't install it any higher on the hatch without it clipping the taillight. I also tilted it back just a little bit so that it doesn't block opening the rear glass. Going to experiment a little bit and see if this sets it too low, the height may make it more directional than I would like. Worst case scenario, I can mount it to the lip of the hood instead of the rear hatch.
