Default RE: Antenna Length on 2.4GHz

2.4GHz antennas are quite a different animal than those for the 72, 75, 35, 50 and 53 MHz units. They are sometimes only a 1/4 wave stub right on the PC board or more often, a 1/4 inch stub on the end of a 50 ohm coax line which can be several centimeters long. If on the end of a coax, you need to be somewhat careful of how you handle that coax; no sharp bends or anything that will dent or deform the line between the receiver and that little bitty antenna at the end.
