OK how many Forester driving ham radio operators do we have on our forum. 1. Me Bill KA9TLU
I thought alot of them were 1DIN in size (roughly).Nobody makes a 1-DIN Ham......:crazy:..
im probabally going to get an Icom IC-208H with remote head capabilities. Alot of radios will fit in a 1 din size opening, but what im looking for is a radio that is made for a 1 din opening (like a car stereo). I cant find a single decent radio that is 1 din (Yaesu, Icom or Kenwood). The Kenwood TM-V71A comes close though.I thought alot of them were 1DIN in size (roughly).
Biggest problem is venting the heat sink.
Most people who really want to squeeze in an HAM radio get one with remote mount capability - the head is usually about 1DIN in front size.
