Hi does anyone have any pictures/info on the radio antenna mounting bracket that fits to the cab side over the vent cover and any other correct radio installation info ?

Personally I have no pics, might get lucky with maintenance truck search in google images. I recall seeing bumper mounted masts and front of bed mounted masts when in service, others were attached to the radio shelter if equipped.
Not too many units mounted radios in the larger vehicles, as they were dispatched to sites and the TOE did not issue radios for those trucks. Usually someone went to the rear to link up with the truck and lead them forward. Maintenance trucks sometimes added them in as they needed to run to different areas, I've seen the radio mounts under the passenger seats when installed in them.

Same with me don’t recall seeing radios in deuces or 5 tons. If we needed a radio we just used a PRC-77 portable. But I’m sure it was done.
