Ham Radio Mobile Setup & Install | Antennas + Remote Head

This video shows how I installed my Yaesu FT-8900 into my vehicle. I go through how my ham radio is installed in the mobile, including the remote head, how to connect it to three separate antennas using diplexers, power wiring, APRS setup + our new van which is being retrofitted for Field Day operations!
