Default Carbon Graphite - Interferance?

I'm building an 8' span B-2 Bomber. The original designer suggests running a tube down the left wing for the RX antenna. The wing was designed with 1/4" balsa spars - one aft top and bottom - one mid top and bottom - and 1/2x5/8 L/E. Everything is sheeted with 1/16 balsa. I decided to give myself some insurance and glued some thin Carbon Graphite tape on the outside of each spar but I've been reading small hints of Carbon Graphite causing interference with the antenna. The antenna will be running inside the wing parallel to and about 2" away from the spars. Do you think this configuration can be a problem?
