Re: gEDA-user: PCB antenna pattern

I am designing a zigbee interface, and I am using an inverted F antenna
out of PCB pattern. The problem is that the terminals of the antenna
pattern are shorted (well not on 2.4GHz), so I don't have any clue what
to put to the schematic. So far, I simply grounded the antenna pin of
the transceiver, but it can lead to misunderstanding. The other option
is to have a two-pin symbol, but the pattern will cause short circuit
when running the DRC.

I made a loop antenna (for ZigBee too), same problem. I ignore DRC.

There was a thread about it, maybe a year ago or more, without any good solution.

Any suggestion?
