Why you need this:
When using your portable radio from within a vehicle, much of the RF signal is blocked by the enclosure of metal and glass. This kit allows the radio to be connected to a roof mounted antenna on top of the vehicle for better transmit and receive sensitivity. This creates clearer communications while operating a vehicle.
