Just received my TM-D710a.  I think I have a good spot for the head unit on the dash, but I need advice on where to install the radio.

I guess the standard spot would be under the driver's seat; but I have a very adjustable seat and don't want to crush the radio if I lower the seat to make headroom (I'm 6'5" tall - headroom is important).  The passenger seat is not adjustable in height, but that means the power cord would be longer. 

Advice for mounting the radio is greatly appreciated.

I have a question for the VHF Rovers out there:

What are you using for a mast for your antennas?  I'm looking for 1 1/4" mast materials to support a stack of loop antennas but I'm only seeing EMT Conduit in 10 foot lengths and no easy way to stick 2 of them together and Radio Shack 10 foot mast material that is swaged to stack - but it's Radio Shack and I'm not sure I can trust the stuff.  I keep hearing about 4 foot lengths of military surplus tent poles but I can't ever find anyone selling them.

I'm planning on running a drive-on mast anchor with tip-over to make assembly easier in January weather in Michigan. 

Any pointers?
