** Listen dickhead - model RC gear is not like CB or commercial two way.
There are no standard connection points and nothing is 50 ohms.
The Tx uses an electrically short telescopic whip with a loading coil.
It depends on the human body holding the set in the normal way to radiate
The Rx uses a non resonant wire antenna feeding a loosly coupled input
coil - *everything* affects it. You cannot attach any test gear without
screwing up the operation.
