    Default DPS PLL FM Transmitter ground for antenna?

    I know I saw it here one time, but I can not find the thread now. I'm using the Ebay / Amazon / Aliexpress DSP PLL FM transmitter board (the cheap one). I'm going to connect a dipole or ground plane antenna so I need to connect a ground to the transmitter. Does anyone know where on the board to connect the antenna ground since there isn't a pad provided for that?

    thanks!

    you should be able to find ground on your power connector or some boards have a ground pad next tx rx pads.

    I just put mine together yesterday. It’s like MikeKrebs said. I’m not home right now or I would take a picture of it. I think it was on the back but I could be wrong. There are 3 soldering pads next to each other. Tx, arc, and ground. I attached a dipole antenna to it and it reaches 2 streets over. I’ll take a picture when I get home.
