[aprssig] RE: VH-SJS Aeronautical mobile

My Cardinal came with a spare belly mount aviation antenna intended for an
aviation handheld transceiver to be used in the event of main radios
failure.  I use it with a Kenwood D700A in the lowest transmit power setting
and it works fine.  The mismatch between 144.390 and the aviation band
doesn't appear to have any significant impact.  And the antenna still
matches the aviation handheld just in case.

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.
