I don't operate HF from it, but My wife's Prius gets parked right under 
one the 75 meter dipoles. Before the balun failed (and I could use the 
antenna) I never heard a peep out of that car, when started, backing 
out, or coming in. I hear nothing on 40 as well but the only antenna I 
have working right now is in the back yard (bout 50 - 75 feet more 
distant)   Having operated HF mobile in the past I realize that even 
close to the antenna is not the same as operating *from* the car. OTOH 
we live about 300 feet from a very busy road and I've never noticed 
anything from traffic on 75 or 40.
