Default antenna

May an antenna be reversed in a fuselage when there is a problem with it going out straight? I am building a pusher and the antenna can be routed to the front for exit but then the remaining length will have to double back over the fuselage. Will this affect the reception?

Do not double back the antenna on itself. This will affectively shorten the antenna and lead to range problems.

For a pusher application I'd route the antenna out the wingtip and allow any remainder to dangle.
