I kept a CB package from an S-10 pickup I bought from my son-in-law after I sold it on. It has an antenna which was attached to the edge if the left front fender about half way towards the front, in the gap between the hood and the fender. There's a cylindrical thingy about half-way up the antenna.
I have absolutely no radio knowledge at all - I was a Mechanical Engineer! I've been thniking of putting the CB in the motorhome. Can I mount this antenna on the side of the MH up near the roof, and use the CB without having reception issues? There's obviously no ground plane, but I'm thinking the pick-up truck didn't have one either and maybe that cylindrical "thingy" subsitutes for the lack of a ground plane.
