You misunderstand. The whole antenna was supposed to be exposed, as it always is with a 72 MHz RX. The plan was no different than a normal 72 MHz RX antenna attached to a wing, except there was to be an equal size ground antenna wire in the other wing. Just a giant dipole the size of the wingspan.
Anyway, back to the point, how does one find the antenna ground on the PCB.
Peter, chime in here oh master guru.
