Cb location options

I need to move my cb that is currently mounted behind the drivers seat. It is not usable in its current location. I'm looking to see where everyone else has mounted them?

My CB is mounted in the center of the shelf Sportsmobile puts where the windshield meets the ceiling. I had always assumed this was the standard location. The antenna goes through the roof right there.

I'm using a HAM but should still apply. I mounted it directly on top of the dash in the center (in front of the wiper motor access door). Doesn't block my view and easy access. Friend of mine mounted his on the removable panel by your left knee. Works for him but I'd hit my knees too often to even consider it...

Sorry I don't have any pictures.

Slightly orthogonal, if anyone on the peninsula is considering the ham exam, I'd be willing to buy beer for a study partner (I'm fine on all but one of the sections, but need to fill that one section in to be sure to nail it.)

Well this isn't a great photo, and it isn't my van - but it shows the shelf...

Here's the overhead cab shelf in my 98 Indiana-built van. It's slightly different from the shelf that Fresno puts in, as it doesn't have the center slot for a CB. I installed mine in the left slot and the mic on the center section. It's secured with a big piece of Velcro underneath. Antenna is on a fender mount.

Thanks for the reply's. Mine did not come with the shelf installed. I just purchased a Shelf-it and will probably mount it there.
