    Headache Rack Antenna install

    I would like to mount a CB in my work truck. I realize that center of the roof would be the best

    HOWEVER

    I dont want to drill a hole AND I really dont like magnetic mounts

    SO

    I would like to install an Antenna on my headache rack. Looks wise one side or the other would be better, but would I gain anything by having it in the center. How much will mounting it on my headache rack affect the ground plane and reception / transmitting?

    Thank you very much for your knowledge and expertise. Thanks

    I don't have mine mounted on a headache rack, it's on a steal bar that I mounted in the bed as a riser to get the antenna roof level... works just fine...
