So, going to bite the bullet and do my own antenna install and figured I might as well do a permanent install of BOTH my GMRS NMO roof mount and CB Roof Mount antennas and get rid of the magnet mounts.
I have a 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Crew Cab truck. I do not have a sunroof so have basically the entire roof for antenna install.
For the CB I plan to use BOTH a 66” whip and/or a 36” short load whip (depending on traveling cross country vs 4x4ing etc., etc.
For the GMRS I plan to use both a 5/8 over 5/8 wave at 33” and a ¼ wave at 6”, again dependent on where I am driving.
Most the time, daily routine driving will use the 36” CB antenna and the 6” ¼ wave GMRS antenna.
So, what would be the best placement for these antenna’s?
I am thinking down the middle rather than side by side.
Should the CB antenna be centered on the roof left to right and front to back and then the GMRS centered left to right but closer to the rear? How far from the other antenna or the rear etc., etc.? Hopefully you get what I am asking.
The truck is only a year old, so I really don’t want to mess this up and want to do it for the best possible performance results.
Looking on line I see antenna’s being mounted all different way – sometimes do to sun/moon roofs which I DO NOT have so am fortunate there.
Look forward to hearing from all of you and saving myself from the heartache of doing it wrong. Have no problems saying I don’t KNOW what to do and need some help.
