Installing a Two-Way Radio

As a licensed amateur radio enthusiast (call sign 4G1AWN), I definitely would want to install a radio in my EcoSport! With a mobile-type radio and a proper antenna installed, it is possible to communicate with fellow radio enthusiasts within 10 to 15 kilometer radius (in a city). The farthest contact I was able to get was from Manila to Calapan, with a distance of about 135 km (I had to relocate the antenna to the roof to improve signal propagation and reception).


To watch the full video on how I installed a two-way radio in my EcoSport, head directly to Installing a Two-Way Radio (Basic). To check out the second version of this radio installation (advance and more invasive), head directly to Installing a Two-Way Radio (Advanced).

    • The antenna a Diamond SG7000, with Nagoya radials. Around 3000 PHP for the antenna and 500 PHP for the radials.
