True, the ground plain wont be perfect, but mounting it in the bed area causes that anyways.
I'm an electrical engineer by trade, so i'm pretty certain my grounding design will work well for what I need. There will be a metal plate the antenna's are mounted to, and when the are in the 'up' position will be locked and bonded to another plate on the truck.
I cant really see the screen if its mounted flat on the hump and my cup holders come out over the hump. But keep the good ideas coming.
What are you running in your truck? I was looking at a Magnum 257 HP. But i dont want to blast everyone away. Just have the ability to communicate when i need it.
