Hi Andrew

I built an antenna mount to clamp to the wing strut of a Cessna 172.  You can see it at http://sarl.ca/ve5aa/CASARA/Casara.htm.  It's partially blocked by the airplane body and doesn't have much of a ground plane but it was still received by our digi over 100 km away.

73, Bruce

  Need some suggestion for aerial mount.

  Aerial will come down for a bit and then bend back - parrallel to belly.

    Gudday

    We are in the process of fitting out a plane with APRS.

    It will have a 

    GARMIN GPS 196
    MAXON Data radio (5W)
    TinyTrak3 
    RG58
    N-TYPE panel mount
    Home brew 1/4 wave bent over whip.

    Callsign will most likely be VK4HDA-9
