Thanks for the insightful response. (and for all of your other amazing contributions too!).Well, the cited article is indeed misleading........
Hopefully there is an easy solution, but If, in a worst-case scenario, a hardware mod is needed; I've used this on a device I made, it works great, and is completely flexible:
One side is self-adhesive, and the cable is quite flexible. Basically we could place the antenna anywhere externally we need to, to overcome any issues.
I've no idea if the Pyras' antenna is µFL plug-able, but worst case would just require a little soldering.
