Only to the sides. The front/rear performance will be reduced.

Of course, depending on the strength of
the signals this may not be an issue.

Doesn't the metal bar the antennas are mounted to provide a ground plane?

Not really a very good install since there isn't any of the required
ground plane for the antennas. If you really wanted a good antenna to

they have many different antennas and gadgets in their online
catalog. You can get multiband antennas or use several in an array. If
you remember the rooftop television antennas, that's what they did
there, each bar was cut for a specific channel or frequency range.
