In order for that to happen, you would need to connect to the pin inside the radio and then route that wire back outside the radio to a bnc connector. The only other way I can think of is to somehow route it inside the module bay and there really isn't room inside the housing even if I were to remove more plastic. Additionally, that pin is not shielded which concerns me as I've seen what happens to ham radios when rf energy gets inside the radio, usually due to a bad ground. For those not aware, it usually resets the microcontroller or just causes it to flake out. I wonder if older radios with module bays were designed with shielding around the antenna pin from the module bay? I'm sure jeti didn't because they never intended there to be a module bay.

A better solution is to install a bnc connector on the module itself with proper shielding and either connect an antenna there or connect a coaxial cable that leads to a remote antenna.

If you are still interested, the standard module bay has the pin installed, just not connected. You can certainly experiment with one however you like.
