cb Antenna location problem

I have a quick question regarding CB antenna location on my 98 ZJ with Surco safari type style roof rack. If I get a roof mount antenna and then load the rack with luggage, and if the antenna is still poking out of the top of a full load of luggage, is that still a good ground plane???

Thanks in advance...

Should be fine, RF waves can travel through cement walls (not well, but they can)so the luggage or whatever you would put up there shouldn't bother it.

What would happen if the antenna were to touch the metal of the rack? Would this blow my system up?

Thanks in advance!
