Hello Jim, I enjoy reading your articles in kitplanes. I am building a sportcopter lightning gyro and am installing a fl760 radio and I was wondering about antenna options.There isn't any ground plane surfaces since it is tube construction,but it does have a instrument pod made of fiberglass that is 18" x 12". Could I put a ground plane inside the pod and mount the antenna on top or would there be a problem with the electrical panel causing noise. The machine also has a 2 stroke engine. Sport copter has a steel whip mounted on the frame of there tandem trainer and it seems to work ok. Also, where is a good place to find a swr meter? Thanks for any advice.
