    Can I mount the 2 antennas on an EZUHF 8 channel diversity RX away from the receiver?

    I'd like to mount the 2 antennas on my EzUHF RX about 6 to 8" away from the receiver unit and on top of carbon fiber plate. What do you recommend I use for the extension? Will the range be lessened? Thanks.

    Use normal extensions, but they have to be dipole antennas or at least something with its own ground plane.

    They are the 433MHz 'Sander Style' whip antennas made by ImmersionRC. Will they work with extensions?

    No. They need a ground plane added, make them into dipoles.

    Does anyone make small dipoles that would be suitable? Thanks.
