Bed-lining Roof Interfere With Ham/CB Radio?
For radio comms I use magnet mount antennas for ham(GMRS) and CB. These work well for me in the space right in front of the penthouse, on the front of the roof. I understand that good contact with your ground plane is key to getting the most out of magnet mounts.
So, I'm having some work done on my van and in the process having Raptor Liner painted on the roof, front to back, drip rail to drip rail and under the PH.
My question is, will the application Raptor Liner significantly diminish my antenna's efficiency? Seat of the pants experience is fine. I'm just wondering if I should talk to the shop and have them leave a empty space for an antenna if there's a significant difference. Thanks
