I've had a '97 and a '01 as company vehicles and had most of those bands in it with no problems. I currently have a low-band Syntor X (6 & 10), a Kenwood TK-705D (VHF) and 805D (UHF), and a EFJ 8640 (900). No RFI problems that I've noted. I used to have an Azden 6M rig in the '97, and could tell anytime I got close to a K-car or one of the next generation after that, whatever they were called...computer birdie very close to 53.01...doesn't bother the Syntor though...???...must be IF related... Mounting is not bad, but placement is a challenge. The 705 is mounted under the dash to the left of the steering wheel, the 805 is mounted on the right side of the console mounted to just clear the glove compartment door and the passenger seat, and angled so I can see it. The head of the Syntor is mounted on the left side of the console under the dash, facing up. Since it doesn't have a display, I don't need to see it as much. The radio itself is on the floor in the backseat, since no one ever sits back there anyway, but it could have been mounted in the back just fine. I was able to find existing gaskets to run power through the firewall and up to a GE fuse block under the hood. With yours being a few years older, mounting may be easier. I remember there was more under-dash room in my wife's '92, but we never put a radio in it (she hadn't gotten her ticket yet). -- Jim Barbour WD8CHL Yahoo!
