RV7 transponder antenna location

Postby AGORV » Fri Oct 26, 2018 7:49 am

question I have seen so many sites but I have so much confusion where to install transponder antenna, I have the dynon skywev and many install it to the bow under the foot of the passenger, but say maybe too close to the transponder itself, and then I saw so many behind but I already have two antennas com and it would be too close, and then how long should the wire be?
thank you

You can mount the transponder behind the baggage compartment rear bulkhead and put the antenna down in the rear part of the fuselage. I mounted it on the side of the center rib. The advantage here is not having to have a long coax run through the cabin.

The antenna for the XPNDR is on the far right side of the fuselage, and the closer one in the picture is for ADS-B on the left side.

Many more photos in my build web site.
