FRS Radio Location

Anyone have any brainy ideas about a good place to mount or otherwise place an FRS/GMRS hand-held radio? I just set mine on the t-case shifter boot but it rolls around and falls on the floor and I can't hear the thing. I've been thinking about rigging up some sort of bungie cord between the two roll bars overhead but it sounds a bit jankie. Ideas?

I have one of those raingler nets behind the front seats, so I hook it to that. As well as my winch control, etc. Makes it easier to hear as I can place it closer to my head.

You can go to a cell phone place and get one of those swivel holders and stick it to the dash. Or just get an earpiece.

Industrial strength Velcro works great. I have it stuck to the Tuffy box on the outside. That way you can grab it and take it outside the truck right quick. I velcro damn near everthing inside the Tuffy also. Air gauge, Hand Held GPS and what not. Stays were you want it.

Does anyone make a CB-style 'mobile' FRS radio which could be mounted a little better than that? I haven't seen one, and I don't know why no one has made one....

Radio Shack used to sell a FRS unit that looked like a CB radio. It had the base unit with coil cord and mic. Came with a magnetic mount antenna. They no longer offer it as I think the unit was higher wattage than allowed or something. But that's what I want too, an FRS unit that mimics a CB unit (with PA system capability).

Well, if you find such a unit, post about it here! I've been looking for one. I wonder if there is something regulatory that has prevented this type of mobile unit from being manufactured. I see a few vendors sell "base station" things, which are desktop-type FRS units not easily mountable in a vehicle, either.

I think what it comes down to is that FRS was concived for "family radio service". Basicaly a low cost very low watt radio for families and other people to use that doesn't require a license. I've never seen a mobile style FRS. But who knows I'm sure they are out there. If you really want a mobile FRS you might want to talk to a local amature radio club. They could "modify" a radio to operate on the FRS channels. One of the clubs near me took some old fire dept radios and tuned them to the same channels FRS uses.
