G10 is fiberglass resin laminate.
Should not affect radio reception at all.

Carbon is conductive material... thats the big problem. If you touch it with a battery (+ and minus) it will short the battery. Sometime ago someone put his carbon blades in the back of the car and over a 12V battery... seems it made a hole in the blades.

Since moving metal parts can generate RF noise our antennas should be as far away as possible. Carbon being conductive is like having a metal sheet next to your antenna... could be good and could be bad.

If I put my QUK below the landing gear it will be surrounded by carbon which would probably act like a metal case shielding the reception.

I wish there was another more reliable method of checking range (something like a reception meter).

I need to find the QUK antenna manual... I can't stop thinking about the length...
