Greetings,

I have a 1 ton Chevy Silverado Dullie for my 5th wheel RV. I'm mounting a ICOM IC-7000 (no amp) and am very new to Amateur Radio.

I have to mount the antenna(s) on a home made steel bracket just behind the crew cab so as not to interfere with the movement of the RV.

I have two antennas that I want to mount on this bracket about 3 feet apart (each side of the bed, Just below the roof line).

One antenna is a Little Tarheel II for 6 through 80 meters and the other is a Comet SBB7 for 146/446 MHz.

Will I have any problems with these antennas being about 3 feet apart on a steel bracket?

If so, any suggestions? I am trying not to drill any holes in the vehicle, my other option can be to mount an antenna on my front bumper with a bracket.

Thanks in advance,

Gunner
