That's what got me.

However, looking at reviews of same on Amazon, my enthusiasm waned. Come to think of it, I had a Midland hand held that died exactly how a few users describe theirs dying.

I paid 50.00 plus shipping. so a case of brown bottles will work.

yes, these are actualy from the factory that provides toyota na with theirs. These are my second set that I have gotten from them, and the quality is superb.

I will be working on the kz all weekend - you able to swing by to see if they fit?

See if you can find the k40 lip mount antenna. I have that on the t100, and it is detachable. works real well. I really like having a detachable unit.

Those sound great. Yep, I might be able to swing by. Brown bottles in hand.

FWIW I am hearing superb things about Wilson antennas. They have a flexible one for $25 (but you gotta buy a mount). I dunno...

I bought the trunk lip mount to clip it to the tire carrier. It is too big for my application.

To your original question: I went down to the grumpy old men's place and after about 5 minutes of being totally ignored while they BS'd with a buddy I left. I found RightChannel and ordered my complete kit (radio-ant mount-firestik antenna-watt meter) from them for lots cheaper than I saw it anywhere else. Everything showed up 3 days later and worked perfect.

I like the Firestik antenna, it's about 3' long but can be folded totally in half without breaking or bending.

Huh. I'm the one who has been pimping Radio Service Center on the forum, too.
