But...maybe not.....

I take delivery of my new Corvette next month.

This has the potential of creating a nightmare for me, amateur radio wise.

Fiberglass body and all...I am not excited about drilling a hole in the body 
anywhere for an antenna.

So..my question is:  How do I go about installing an antenna on the car for 
my 2 meter/440 Kenwood radio?  (TM-D710A)

I forsee a noise (RFI) issue, as well as a ground plane issue.  I am fairly 
confident that I can handle the noise, but the ground plane...


Any thoughts?  Or anyone who is experienced in these type of fiberglass body 
installs that someone here could recommend to me?

Many thanks in advance!
