It shouldn’t. If you are having issues with interference you could do like I did, add a “antenna “ to the receiver and drill a small hole for it to go through. Channel a place on top of the deck for it and just put grip tape over.

aren't the antennae kind of specific or fragile? can you simply extend the wire with another soldered on wire?

I thought I heard somewhere motor wires could interfere..any second opinions?

It depends on the type of radio and the frequency. The BMW i3 electric car doesn't even have AM on the radio due to interference issues. At higher frequencies, like WiFi, it should be no problem.

I simply sort of spliced(?) twist my “extension” on the existing antenna
