2 questions;

B) As I'm still waiting for a SMA-F adaptor, I'm keen to play around with it. I was planning on running a short distance (<300m) with CP to linear. I should expect about 3db of loss is that correct? Is there any other reason I shouldn't be doing this?

Thanks!
A) -> possible. GoPros are notorioiusly know for their IME radiation. Pack it in silverfoil if needed. If I'm not mistaken, there are sides of the GoPro which are radiating heavier than others, so maybe placing it differently helps. By all means make a serious range test!

B) Nope, nothing wrong with trying. You loose the 3dB, that's it.
