One thing you might consider Pat is a Lido Mount of some kind for the Kenwood, I have 2 of them one you can see on the bottom of my QRZ page that mounts to a seat mounting bolt on the floor with a gooseneck. It holds my IC-2820 head in the photo and the Kenwood sits on the console on the factory mount. I like the 200w of the HX because I didn't wan't to run an amp mobile.
