CB Antenna in overhead compartment

Has anyone had success with putting a CB antenna in the overhead compartment. What have you used as a ground plane or does it transmit and recieve without one? I am asking for my Siesta 25 SA.

In my Class A - nothing to use as a ground plane... You might have something usable in your rig...

There are antennas designed for no ground plane - they use the antenna wire (fixed length) to serve the purpose.

I'd expect issues if an antenna expecting a ground plane doesn't have one.

I'm looking to mount my 'no ground plane' antenna outside... Still figuring how I'm going to get the wire where I need it to be without being visible - guessing that is why you are considering the compartment...
