I need to clean up my roof and am looking to install NMO mounts for my 2m and CB. I've got a 4Runner with a sun roof and from what I can tell I can't mount an antenna behind the opening for the sunroof. When the window is open it appears it tucks into a sleeve of sorts and drilling a hole above it seems impossible let along getting an NMO in there along with some coax. I run a roof rack basket on the roof so I'm thinking I have to mount everything behind that as well. By the time I get to the rear of the vehicle there is about 10 inches of roof.
Is this enough room for 2 mounts? I know there is enough room for 2 little holes but what about having 2 antennas so close together? Currently both my antennas are mag mounts and one is near the sunroof the other is near the rear. As they are currently there is no audio interference between them but I don't have enough coax to put them close enough together to test where I want to move them to.
I was just hoping someone here might have a little input or experience to share before I drill holes in the roof. FWIW I run a 1/4 wave 2m most of the time and it's short and still. I have a 1/2 2m wave that I use just sometimes and it is much more flexible. From what I can find it looks like my only hope for an NMO CB antenna is a 5/8 wave which is in the neighborhood of 55" long. That's quite a bit longer than my 44" Wilson lil wil and I'm afraid it will clang around with the HAM antenna.
Again thanks for any input. Ideally someone out there would have some knowledge about NMO installs on a 4runner with a sunroof.
