Hi guys, I'm just making myself a custom magnetic mount with a strong rare earth magnet to hold it on the car. The antenna is used for both CB and Scanning in the 400-512mhz range. Does anyone know if this strong magnet is likely to affect my transmitting and receiving capability? Thanks heaps in advance!

After all, rare earth magnets ARE more rare than plain old iron magnets--
