Default Garmin Radom HD18 Install Question

Help Please...I am mounting a garmin radom on my T-Top. I am concern with the height of the unit in that at its current location, the radar beam would not clear the rod holders on the t-top. Should I be concern with the aluminum rod holders on the t-top? I have not even power it on so I have no clue how it might look on the screen.

That shouldn't be a problem. There's about a 50' radius that doesn't show up on radar. You could always raise the dome with a mount if you wanted.

There are boats up here that have radomes and even open arrays that have VHF antennas and even the bases of the searchlights that don't show up on the screen.
