Guidlines

  • Power connections should be made directly to the battery and fused as close to the battery as possible
  • Antennas for two-way radios should be mounted on the roof or the rear area of the vehicle
  • The antenna cable should be high quality, fully shielded coaxial cable, and kept as short as practical
  • Carefully match the antenna and cable to the radio to achieve a low Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) and to avoid RF currents on the antenna cable shield
  • Transceiver power connections should be made directly to the battery and appropriately fused as close to the battery as possible
  • Use caution when routing wires between the passenger and engine compartments to avoid chafing or pinching of wires
  • Route and secure all underhood wiring away from mechanical hazards such as exhaust manifolds and moving parts
  • Maintain as great a distance as possible between mobile radio power leads and the vehicle’s electronic modules and wiring
