Jim-

One of your concerns--metal bodies-- is valid. Are you aware that the antenna that Neil uses on the S-Cab RX is just a little piece about 1/16" X 1/8" X 5/8"long, and he can supply it with a piece of co-ax so that it can be mounted remotely outside a metal body, while the board is inside? I have a brass tender body with the battery and RX inside--and the antenna is hidden in the coal load.I suppose that the tender body acts as a ground plane, although I have perfect control from nearly 40 ft away (as far as I can get in the trailer my RR is in) without a GP.
