It wasn't interference I was concerned about - it was the ability of
the radio signal to get out of the steel box. Behind an empty drive
slot could be a good spot, if there is the usual plastic cover over
the hole, it will let the signal get out.
Yeah, but the adapters are pretty small, and just plug into a USB
port, no real problem at all. I've got a spare one that came with my
MS bluetooth mouse that I didn't need coz I had bluetooth built-in,
and it's only a couple of cm long and a bit wider than the USB socket,
and needs no external PSU.
Anyway, best of luck - it's always fun to try something new.

It's not merely a matter of letting the signal get out, but
of signal strength. Signal strength might be sub-optimal
even if the device were locationed in best possible place,
but recessing it inside a metal housing is asking for
They often work best when connected to a USB extension cord.
