Anyone have their CB antenna mounted on the fender/under hood? I've been doing some researching, reading the threads, etc. but don't see anyone using this location. Most folks seem to be using the spare tire or license frame mounting option. I'm looking at a fender mount for a couple reasons. First, if I hang it on a limb or something, I'll see it before it snaps (hopefully). Second, wouldn't it get more ground plane reflection away from the soft top? Reflect off the hood and/or windshield?
Main use will be for the trails, so range won't be incredibly important. I do spend a bit of time on the roads. The Jeep is my DD, so it could be useful for work as well.
I'm just thinking this thru and trying to figure out what would work best for me. Any input would be appreciated. If someone is running a setup similar, photos of the mount would be appreciated.
