Default Can I put all of this on the same radar mast...?

4' Open array
ais antenna
gps antenna
vhf antenna
xm/sirrius


Just wondering if there is a requirement for any minimum separation?


My goal is to get it all on the same mast so I dont have to have more than one hole passing throught the roof

Complex set of conditions.
Since AIS and VHF are very close in freq, I would tend to move the AIS. Is this Rx only?

Is the pilothouse plastic? GPS receivers have come a long way in 20 years. Outside antennas are manytimes not required.
