I have excellent performance with the stock ball-tipped antenna on a “Jim Weir” octagonal ground plane, with the ball tip of the antenna just inside my VariEze’s fuselage belly skin (hole in foam for antenna goes right to the inner surface of the skin, so no external antenna protrusion).

Has anyone mounted a monopole style antenna thru the floor of their EZ?
With the ground plane on top of the floor not underneath the bottom.
