Ways to Mount a Uniden BC-GPSK GPS Antenna

For those wanting to take certain Uniden scanners on the road and benefit from the embedded frequency database, the Uniden BC-GPSK GPS Antenna is a must have.  The antenna will help determine your location and coupled with some scanner settings, keep receiving audio within a predetermined radius from where you are.

Car and Truck Mounts for the Uniden SDS100 Scanner

The Uniden SDS100 is the best scanner I have ever used.  While it pains me to pay for the DMR upgrade after spending so much, it’s still a great scanner.  I’m able to hear frequencies I could not get before.  Programming is about as easy as it gets using Sentinel.

Ham and CB Radio Mic Holders and Mounts for Cars and Trucks

This article is written to address a common problem with ham and CB Radios.  Namely, where to put the mic when not using it.  A lot of radio owners toss it on the seat.  That’s kind of ok unless there is a passenger, in which case, you could ask them to put it on their lap (which is probably not ok).  You can’t attach it to the side of the radio because it’s likely mounted under the dash and it’s virtually impossible to hang it on that little hook without taking your eyes off the road.  This is where mic … Read more
