    Hi, I am new to the forum and I have a question re: Kenworth t680 ,
    2020

    I want to install a vhf radio (we don’t use Cb radios much up here in Canada ) and I was wondering if the truck comes wired with 12 volt power up in the consol above the winshield .
    If so, is it well marked?
    The truck didn’t come with any antennas so I will have to figure out where I want to put that. Maybe on top of the cab protector?
    Any suggestions would be welcome
    Thanks

    Can you give us an idea what model and make of the radio, uhf covers a lot of frequency real estate.

    I haven’t decided on a radio yet, I said uhf but I meant vhf. Sorry about that. I probably will go with one of the icoms.
    My concern was , how hard is it going to be to get power up top. Is it already wired for a radio, or will I have to run power up there.
    I had a close look today and I can’t see any power cables up top that are obvious.

    Not hard to get power up there, but I don’t know if it is wired, I don’t have a 680.
