Hey guy's! I just got in a frs radio and I don't know where the best location is to mount it. Is it okay to mount it up under the roof? Where do you have your radio?

All of ours are mounted to the roof, I have seen a few mounted to the rollbar.
You will want it mounted high because they are not weather or water resistant.

No you will hear it just fine and you can still read the face, note ours are mounted sideways so you can see what channel you are on.

I think I seen dino's on his xp. But If I mount mine on the back of the roof I would have to get out and walk to get it. lol I guess I will mount it behind the light bar on the roof. It should be easy to see, but the mic might be in the way, I really don't want a mic hitting me in the head all the time.lol I was wondering if i could hook the frs radio up to the cd player? then it would come through the speakers in the back and I could mount it with the cd player out of the weather.

Roof mount for me, along with the mic holder, works great.

For my atv, I have a speaker mic combo in my helmet, with a push to talk button connected to a 5 watt portable. The portables are still handy to have in a UTV for spotting or checking out a trail on foot.

Mine is mounted to my roof but I also carry a portable in case I want to listen to another channel at the same time or I am away from the machine. (breaks or lunch stops)

Roof is the way to go....... Thats where i always recommend to put them. I have had mine in my Rzr for 2 years there. I just make sure to kill the power before I wash the Rzr.

kymedic or Bluedevil, do you have pics of your radios mounted in your T4's? I've been thinking about getting one in the T4.
