I recently installed my Uniden 520xl CB. I mounted a 4' firestik antenna on a mounting bracket over the driver's side rear light. My jerry can is on the same side and within about 4 inches of it.
My question is there any real hazzard of shock or EMI having the antenna that close to a closed fuel can? The radio puts out (advertised) 7 watts of power and when I set the SWR, it was between 1.2 (CH 1) and 1.4 (Ch 40).
Any insight into the level of concern I should have would be appreciated!
