Added an HT mount to the madness because why not.

@dokuja 980SSB. Great radio but the display in mine partially burnt out after 2 years. Not sure if it is because the angle I have it out gets hit with sun or just a general defect.

@Famicoman ah, I install mine temporarily so it doesn't stay in the sun/heat year round (shares a firestik mountpoint with a 10m) but will let you know if mine goes kaput.

@dokuja that's smart. I now usually cover it with a white t-shirt now to keep some of the sun and heat away but it's too little too late. I can still use most of it just fine, and occasionally the whole screen works for a bit, but if it ever bothered me too much these aren't crazy expensive to replace.
