If you’ve been following this blog for a while now, you would know that I am also a licensed amateur radio enthusiast (Class B: 4I1AWN). A number of modifications done in this EcoSport are geared towards improving my mobile radio setup. In this video, I have shown how I placed a press-to-talk button in the shifter knob for a hands-free operation of the radio.
The modification involves drilling a hole in the shifter knob and then placing a switch (with light). The shifter rod was also shortened to make room for the switch. Spiral telephone wire cables were used to allow movement of the shifter rod with minimal stress to the cables. Installed in 2016, this shifter knob button has worked flawlessly ever since.
