Re: ELT Antenna Placement

Mike Thanks for posting the pic. Unfortunately all antenna mounting on the 8 is a compromise of one kind or another.

CJ looking great! your progress is great motivation!
I see that you put in a compass, I am still trying to figure out if I can get away without one. Just in case what is the depth behind the panel of that compass?
