    Bs.....Thhere is more to it than just a radio tune..It depends on mostly on ant choice,placement and what its being mounted to..
    Yes a well tuned radio gets rid of noise and distortion ect but that depends on the tech,what he has for equiment and if he can use it..
    Heck i can buy a full spec race car but it dont mean im fast....

    Gotta do some studying..

    I’m with you.

    most truck stop golden screwdriver operators can not align a radio properly.

    Someone made a mount to go into the holes for the look down mirror on the passenger side door. I've seen those for years, just not very many of them.

    My uniden 980 has not been touched, works fine for what I use it for.

    If your puttin an ant up there on the look down mirror spot....likely gonna gonna be able to use a short antenna,they are not as efficient as a taller one plus thats the side that sees more tree and road sign abuse..
