I have a single-side ifa antenna design to which I wish to solder a coaxial feed. Now, I only have this female SMA connector with 5 pins on the otherside that I wish to solder to my PCB.
This may seem like an odd question but: will it function if two of the 5 pins are on the dielectric plate and the bottom two are on a conductive plate (copper)?
Fifth one is on the middle and on the feed point. I did consider moving the feed point a tad lower but making the feed point longer would require me to change all the other parameters to compensate it, which I couldn't find a way to do.
The antenna is designed to work at 2.4GHz frequency.
