Need Help Finding Out Where To Mount My Antenna Whip On My TJ

I've Noticed Having A Hardtop Wrangler That It's Hard To Find Out Where To Put A Antenna For My HAM Radio, Please If Anyone Has One On And Could Show Me I Would Be Very Grateful. I Thought The Passenger Rear Would Be A Good Spot But I Don't Know If They Have Brackets That I Can Buy For That. And If It Would Interfere With Removing The Hardtop. Also The Thought Of A 5 Foot Whip Coming Off Of It Would Always Give Me The Joy Of Looking At It As A RC Jeep, If Anyone Can Help Me Thank You Very Much

HF or VHF? Do you have the antenna already, or starting to shop.

Mount it on your rear bumper and whenever you have to remove the top, just unscrew the antenna

Seems like the calculation is 468/f=1/2 wave dipole. I'm a HAM but it's been a long time since I've made any antennas.
Radiation pattern favors the largest ground area so if it is mounted to the rear of the vehicle, most of the signal gets radiated towards the front. Unless the antenna is built to compensate. It's a minor consideration. I would go as mentioned and mount to the rear.
