    Looking for some ideas to mount a VHF radio under a T-top. I supposed can get a box for the top, but wouldn't mind having it mounted directly to the t-top.

    I just use 2 hose clamps. Your radio should have the mounting bracket. I just put the clamps around the tubing and bracket it works fine. If you don't like the look of the clamps . You could use a couple of rivets or screws with washers.

    Mine is mounted to my T-Top with the bracket provided with the radio. I love it.
    Actually it is mounted just under the electric box. Instead of inside like it use to be.
    Never could hear shit! Now I hear it great.

    So much more convenient for me.
