Have you got anywhere with this? I have searched up to radius 500 and found none. All the rational pentagons I found have a rational diagonal, and almost all have a diameter as a diagonal. A few have *all* the diagonals rational, so you could inscribe a rational pentagram in a rational pentagon, e.g. 65: 32 50 66 78 126.
