sorry went to bed
yeah I know about the hand helds but I only have 2 hands I would be using my phone and holding the antenna then a laptop and when I get to the rocket I need 2 hands for the rocket that's why I want to mount it but then you need an Omni directional. with the teledongal BT my phone would be getting it too and I would have gps on my phone to walk to when im there put my phone up and my laptop would have palmary tracking so people can see will im getting the rocket.
rms I've thought of making 1 but the one in my first post is 55 to 80 depending on were I get it from.

Wrong band. I believe it's for 200Mhz trackers and he's working with the 70cm band. Kurt
Didn't realize Telemetrum & TeleGPS worked off different bands!

My TeleMega runs 70cm band. 434MHz or thereabouts.

The antenna I purchased was a bit more expensive (\$99 on Australian dollars) but it was higher gain and the multiple center-loading coils make it less dependent on having a symmetrical ground plane for reception.

The extra gain is worth having for higher flights or getting more packets through as the bird flails around during descent (Tx antenna moving about affects link strength).
