FRS Vehicle Radio

FRS Radio

Part #: 21-1850

I normally wheel with a couple of FRS radio's inside the vehicle for communications with my spotter when I am in a difficult area, or just for communicating between friends when we are in a couple different areas.    Now going down the highway, the handheld's, just didn't have enough volume to be heard over all the soft top and road noise.   That is until these were found at the local Radio Shack.  Very simple to operate with all the features of a handheld unit in one powerful package.  This is a Mobile/ Marine 14 Channel radio.  The radio is sealed inside the antenna's magnetic mount for maximum range.  All controls are located on the microphone.  It utilizes the 14 Family Radio Service channels with 38 selectable quiet codes.  Range of up to 3 miles.

Additional Parts:
Tools Needed:


1. Since this is a mobile unit.  All you need to do if find a magnetic, or a hard mount are within reach of the cigarette lighter plug for the antenna.  I just run mine out the passenger door and mount it to the hood.  Check to make certain that there is no debris on the base of the antenna before you do.  You wouldn't want to scratch your paint job.

2.  Here it is installed on the hood. Antenna on hood

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
