it seems to be a new trend. Sticking out the radio antenna from the trailing edge of the aero helmets. So where do these antennas usually go when used on normal stages?

I'd tend to think that's one of the worst places you could put it. John Cobb and several others have already proved that wires and straws are bad. Putting it there would just make it worse. If he put it in fron of his helmet, or maybe behind it, it'd be fine, but on top would be undisterbed air flow.
