I have a 97 Discovery the problem is where is the best place to install a UHF radio.
There don't seem to be much room anywhere :The Radio is a Uniden Sundowner UH-100. Any ideas?

A mate of mine with a similar vehicle ended up going for a dash pod to solve the problem.

Had the same problem with the explorer.
If the UHF has a mounting bracket try the front passenger’s side, down the side of the gear shifter compartment ‘arr can’t think of what to call it’( you know what I mean ya right knee is next to it when you sit in the passenger seat).

Just make sure you put the unit far enough forward so the side of the passenger’s seat doesn’t hit it if you have to move the seat forward. It’s better than paying $200 for a dash or roof counsel

Sorry about the vagueness of my description but have a look and you will see what I mean.

edge
Have seen them screwed to top centre light console and wires run through behind to hide - then across to window and down pillar to under dash.

I think I saw it on www.d2au.com - some pics and instructions.

I don't know what this radio looks like. I have a GME TX3200 which seems to do a good job in my 96 Disco. I am no mechanic but was easily able to fit it myself because it fits in that otherwise fairly useless map pocket thing above the sunvisor. No fitting required really, just push it in and it fits perfectly - hasn't moved in two years including much rough work. Power can be picked up from behind the light and the aerial runs down the door pillar, which all comes apart for easy access. If the Uniden doesn't fit - sell it and buy a GME ! 8-)

Best place for your UHF radio on a Disco is under the bonnet, because thats were you will be most of the time. SORRY just couldnt help myself there

If you're not going to be fiddling with the channels much, why not install it in the back and extend the mic cord to a convenient spot up front.I have a uhf radio in the house with an extra mic and speaker in an outside office that works fine.
