  • Made mounting structures for a GPS/SXM antenna for Garmin G3X, GPS antenna for Garmin GTN 625 and the ELT antenna on top of the fuselage. Used .032 aluminum and mounted them directly, flush to the top of the aluminum stringers. Garmin recommended 8" square mininum ground plane for GPS. I will use copper tape radials under the fabric to increase the effective ground plane for the ELT antenna. Garmin provided very detailed patterns for mounting the antennas so I don't need to buy them yet.
