      You can split the G-2 however, you can;t do it with wires, You need to use the ribbon cable and that takes up too much room. Also, that stupid capacitor takes up a lot of room.

Use the external antena kit (or light coax cable) and use a metal rod about 1 inch above the roof from the centre hump to almost the end of the roof (about 13 inches - you can find the exact length for 900 Mhz on line).  I believe there are prototype examples for this.  Use plastic supports and ground the coax exterior to the body.
