Since LN-MAV is in the EXPERIMENTAL category, I don't have to care about STC's etc. I'm thinking to make a ground plane for 3 antennas below the fabric aft of the wall behind the BC-659:
- GPS antenna
- Transponder antenna
- ELT antenna
For VHF antenna, I'm trying to modify the AN-29-C original antenna. Using a Sitemaster, we will try to find a length that works well with 118-134 MHz. If unsuccessful, perhaps a RG400 COAX cable inside the antenna and connected to a whip antenna for VHF at the top. This way, there will be no antennas visible that was not there during WW2 service.
