The metal pole for your lights WILL interact with your VHF antenna. Not recommended...
I'm glad you brought this up awhile ago - it's timely for me. I have a masthead whip antenna mounted against the port side of my mast, with a windex behind it. I've ordered a wireless wind transducer that I was hoping to install on an arm in front of the masthead assembly, and I'll also be replacing the manual windex since the PO mangled it a bit. I also have a small masthead anchor light as well, but it's short enough that it probably does not shadow the antenna.

I'd appreciate your advice on how to mount these things to avoid interference. I have all winter to fabricate extension arms, brackets, etc., to make sure both wind gadgets are not interfering. Just let me know what you suggest.
