Radio amateurs have been installing their rigs and antennas on their vehicles for over 100 years. In this video, the "Ham Radio Crash Course" (John Nass) takes us step-by-step through the installation of an HF antenna in an electric vehicle. Like installations in liquid-fueled cars, bonding and grounding are important keys to a successful mobile antenna installation. RFI can be a major problem for electric vehicles as well, since the large batteries found in these vehicles can generate quite a bit of interference.

If you follow the suggestions in this video, your installation will be successful.  The tips offered in this video apply equally to installations in hybrid and conventionally-powered vehicles.  Be sure everything that can radiate a signal is grounded.

Here are comments from the video author that may help you get started:
"I've been quiet happy with my Yaesu ATAS-120a & FT-891 HF ham radio installation. Let me show what I did to bond the hood, doors and the back hatch to reduce the RFI into the radio. Bonding is important for a mobile install reduce your ambient noise Monthly newsletter, stickers, private content: https://www.patreon.com/hoshnasi Links to products in the video: https://www.amazon.com/shop/hamradioc...
