Dang Russ, if I knew that you were so easy... :)

To the OP: Go for it, it won't cause a problem (with the signal at least. The first time that someone has to get into the tray and knocks your antenna loose is a different issue entirely).

the electricians will rub your antenna on their next cable pull, or drape some cables across it while they pull in... just speaking as an electrician :) just make sure it is strongly attached and that the antenna lead is protected
