So I'm looking at installing a CB on a truck with a fiberglass cabover. I've read everything I can find about antenna placement, and basically the answer is: there is no good place. From a purely functional standpoint, the only ground plane available is the hood of the truck. Second best might be center of the front bumper, but my signal would be significantly biased to the rear of the vehicle. All the bumper/fender/mirror options come with similar distortions to the signal field. So the question is, why do you never see antennae mounted in the hood? Is there a real reason, or is it just so epically uncool that no one will do it? Would the electrical activity of the engine have an effect? I'm pretty uncool already, so it's a small leap for me if it works! I expect that a good ground strap to the hood would be in order. Comments?
