VHF Antenna mount location???
I recently purchased 6 VHF radios and antennas from a farm auction. They are ICOM F-121. The frequency is 163.050. They came with mag mount antennas. I am installing one in my 9882 New Holland and am unsure of where to locate the antenna on the roof. I will have to silicone a steel plate to the roof for the magmount.
With the location of the radio in the cab, routing and length of antenna cable, I am only able to get the VHF antenna about 1.5-2' away from the FM antenna. Is this gonna cause me grief with interference?
At the current VHF antenna location, the GPS antenna is about 8' away, so hopefully no trouble there.
I am also new to the world of VHF so any help will be appreciated.
