My experience is that THINNER coatings are the best for microwaves. Something like this should not change the performance much:

If you want cheap, any sort of lacquer varnish should do. The silcone coatings seem to end up thicker and pull the frequency around more.

Maybe two-layer board can be used in some cases. As dielectric thickness is known, calculations and simulations may be done. As a result - "invisible" inner-layer antenna. Altough it would be more expensive.

I've made the Antenna and now just want to coat it.
