Nomad Zaxnet antenna and ground planes

Recommended Posts

I've recently purchased a few options to move Nomad's zaxnet antenna to elsewhere in the bag.

 

I then noticed a post from Glenn stating that, an antenna with a ground plane should be chosen if extending.

(post 11 here)

 

Firstly, what problems could occur when extending an antenna without a ground plane?

 

Secondly,

 

Is there anything in the specs of an antenna that will tell me if it has a ground plane (besides overtly stating it)?

 

I have looked at many antennae over the last few days and haven't seen this mentioned.

 

For the record, these are the items I bought (some of them thanks to Tom Visser and José Frias)

And a pair of these (although these will live directly on Nomad and QRX 235 if used)
