2.4MHz thinking out loud...

I have followed the 'backpack' build with interest. I even had a go at building the 5.8MHz clover leaf antennas. I have not tried them yet but they seem to do a good job by all reports. So logically thinking can similar antennas be built for the 2.4MHz that can be used with the Tx/Rx we use. Or would the Rx antenna be too big...?

Hi Keith,
Yea we had a bit of a run in on this one in this
viewtopic.php?f=51&t=1389&hilit=+aerial
Opinion was (Shotglass) that it wouldn't significantly increase range and I wondered about the reception in different orientations (upside down).
But practically speaking its possible and the aerial wouldn't be to big except on really small planes, if you google IBCrazy you'll find his dimensions for the 2.4 aerial.
