mobile radio which suits all needs in terms of diier- ent mounting locations and user positions in the car. Directly coming off the front (see Figure 1) the microphone connector lengthens the radio consider- ably so problems with the strain relief may appear.

  The microphone connector projects the outline of the housing. This could probably irritate the dri- ver while operating the various instruments or while conducting the vehicle. During an accident the pro- truding microphone connector could probably increase the risk of injury.

  If the connector is directed downwards (see Figure 2) difficulties might come up to mount the radio flushing with the dashboard. In addition prob- lems regarding the strain relief and anti-kink device might appear.

PROPOSED SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM(S)

  To cover all variants of installation and user applications the solution to...
