I might find myself circumnavigating storms in summer. The last thing I want is to loose my comm in real IFR. My current decision is to put wicks on the airplane but only half the amount suggested by DG. Maybe the comm would work just fine, but I don't want to find out later in a serious situation
Has any RV ever had this problem? I never heard of it - but perhaps you have some data I donít. If so, Iím sure many would like to know.

Iíve used ADS-B weather when IFR to circumnavigate many thunder bumpers along the East Coast. Never had a problem.
