I want to change the position of my dual band 2m/70cm antenna to the roof of my pickup. Right now it is on the driver side hood using a lip mount and works fine there. My query is. If I put it in the center of the roof (plan of driling a hole for a NMO mount and installing a Larson 2/70B) that will make it only a few feet from my HF antenna that is mounted on the center of the bedrail behind the cab and am wondering if this will impact the performance of either of the two mounted in this configuration. A link for the HF antenna install can be found in my profile here or at QRZ.

The two will have virtually no effect on one another.

My 270B is over the front dome light on my Windstar, the 6m Larsen is just folrward of the rear dome light and my HS1800 is off the left rear - no measurable interaction between them.

I just bought that same Larsen dual 2/440 and am very impressed with it.
