    Circular Wireless 1.2-1.3GHz RHCP Patch Antenna question

    Hey guys,
    I have the Circular Wireless 1.2-1.3GHz RHCP Patch Antenna - http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...oducts_id=2951 ,and I would want to ask if can I drill 4 holes on the sides of the backplate (not the front where is the antenna soldered) to mount the antenna? will it may make performance issues or something else?
    Thanks!

    Yes you can do that. No problem at all. It will be better if you use nylon bolts or zip ties to secure it rather than metal bolts. However, small metal hardware will not affect the antenna noticably.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    +1.

    But, why don't you just use the 1/4" threaded hole designed to attach the antenna?
