SR4L049- Does the bottom side layer require clearance directly underneath the part?

I am inquiring about the recommended printed circuit board layout for your surface mount antenna SR4L049.

The datasheet shows the top layer copper and clearance areas around the part.

I have been unable to find any information on the bottom side metalization.

Does the bottom layer require a clearance area directly underneath the part or is the bottom layer all ground?

Thank you for your time

Hi John,

The clearance area shown in the datasheet must be implemented on every layer of the PCB.

Many Thanks
