    I have purchased a AnyTone Dual Band Transceiver VHF/UHF AT-5888UV. I have a question in installation.

    I am installing it into my 2010 Dodge Avenger. The battery is in the number in front of my driver wheel. There is access points on top (make it easier to jump) with about 4 gauge wire running from the alternator and the battery. My question is, can I attach power at that access point or do I have to go through the pain of trying to dig to my battery directly?

    That access point should be fine for the hot lead. Fuse within a couple of inches of that point. Ground should go to a factory grounding point, preferable near the hot lead, but not mandatory. Fuse not needed on the ground side.
