I’m not an antenna engineer but it seems like the simplest solution would be to move the ‘gap’ between the two antennae where it’s unlikely to be covered through casual touch. This would work for both left and right-handed users.

From a hand-placement point-of-view the ideal spot would be in the middle of the cable connector but that could introduce structural issues with the plug.
