does electrical tape interfere/block microwave RF?
I was searching and I couldn't find a good answer. Normally my logic in this matter would lead me to believe that only something that conducts electricity could damped the RF signal. But I've read for small microwaves it could be different and actually negatively impact a signal when using electrical tape.
I've searched and all I've read is that electrical tape can block sensitive microwaves BUT not sure if true though?
. Isn't 2.4ghz and 5.8ghz considered microwave? Was wondering because I found that 3m vinyl/electrical tape adheres better and more secure to foam rather than duct tape for some reason. Wanted to use it to tape down my vtx than usual duct tape.
Anyone know if 3m vinyl electrical tape dampens radio frequency in the microwave range? using 2.4ghz and 72mhz. Not to be all "ocd" but I gotta know! hehe.

I certainly wouldn't use duct tape.. it has metallic bits in it (at least the silver stuff does). I would use hot glue or double sided tape.
I haven't heard of electrical tape causing issues, but then again are you going to be taping your antennas?

Use thin strips if packing tape that would be less mass and you'll be fine.
