Check this thread that I started to try and collect information on various carbon/partial carbon installations that have been successful.

Do you have range problems in low power mode? Or is it more of a concern? Direct line of site does not necessarly apply. Shielding may not be obvious based on visual presentation.

Only in low power mode. Release the button and control resumes. Didn't test range on full power to test for holds

you need control at all orientations in low power mode from the prescribed distance for your radio, typically 30 paces or so.

Better to move a few antennas around on the ground than the alternative

Frequency conflict should be an ever decreasing issue, but then the discipline of frequency control has all but been lost. In some respects the non-2.4 guys may be more at risk than ever as people who switch back and forth forget to follow good frequency control practices.
