I just did a search, but I didn't find any info on mounting two-way radios or antennae in/on a WRX.
I just got a 2005 WRX Wagon and I want to install my Uniden PC76XL CB radio, but I'd like to avoid drilling the side of the center console on the passenger side. That is where I have the CB installed in my 91 Mazda Protege right now. I didn't care about two holes in the console plastic on that car. Here are a couple of pictures of the slightly smaller Cobra 25WX LTD in the Mazda:
Also, what is a good antenna mount that I won't have to drill for? I don't want to use a magnetic-mount antenna, so I was thinking of using an adjustable lip-mount on the tailgate, but I'm not sure which ones will fit best on the WRX wagon tailgate. I have a 5' Wilson Silverload fiberglass antenna right now, but I'd consider getting a thinner steel whip to reduce stress on the mount and tailgate.
The owner's manual says to consult a Subaru dealer before installing CB and Ham radios as they may interfer or damage sensitive equipment in the car. Has anyone asked a dealer about CB or Ham radio installation? What did they say? Have you had any trouble with operating the two-way radio?
Thanks for your help! I miss talking to the truckers on my daily commute
