Not sure if this is the place to ask this, but here's my question. Following a lot of the guides out there, I picked up an Apple mini PCI-e airport card and a mini PCI-e to PCI-e adapter card with 3 antennas link this one (quick google search):

.

The Airport cards only have two antenna connections, so only two of them would be used. I also picked up the A1811 bluetooth module, which needs an antenna as well.

Is there any reason that I shouldn't just hook up the bluetooth to the third unused antenna on the PCI-e card? I can't imagine they would interfere with each other that much, and it would get the bluetooth antenna to the outside of my mostly metal case. Thoughts?
