Surprisingly the SG is compact enough IMHO for a nice mobile install, however someone with a smaller vehicle might not have the luxury of so much space. I rarely use the access cab except to throw junk in, so why not utilize it better? While I was acquiring everything, I decided to do a quick precheck on the truck to see how difficult this project was going to be, surprisingly, the Tacoma is very accommodating to ham radio operators!
Site preparations well under way. Toyota loaded to the gills with gravel, about 1. Decided to put kg of concrete powder on bonnet to help hold front wheels down for traversing steep road.
There is no further need to take care when operating around 3. Thanks to all amateurs who kept the frequencies clear for emergency traffic. Following flash flooding in the Liguria and Tuscany regions of North West Italy last week which killed 10 people, further heavy rain has struck the region killing more people in flooding. The Amateur Radio Voluntary communications group RNRE has been asked by their government to provide additional radio communications in the affected areas from Friday 4th November until at least Monday 7th November.
Forgot Password? And while I've yet to go on an emergency deployment, I've hauled my equipment to a lot of field exercises and demonstrations. I could just barely squeeze everything I needed into my old Prizm and still have room to get in it myself.

Radio interference. Disturbance to your radio can be due to either poor reception or interference. The causes and solutions for poor reception and interference problems are different.
Well, the project is done and I think it turned out pretty well. The cup holder insert and the storage compartment in the back are both replaceable if ever needed. Toyota makes some nice little plastic retainers for cable routing that are installed under the kickplates. Using a flat blade screwdriver I was able to pop them open and route my cables through with no problem.
