spg_76013 Posted June 30, 2008 Share Posted June 30, 2008 Hi All - My VariEze wing/winglets are complete but not painted. Years ago I failed to install a COM antenna inside the winglets, as I should have. C'est la vie. I realize it might be too late to do so, but figured I'd ask anyway: does anyone have any advice/lessons-learned about installing a COM antenna on a VE winglet at this stage? I've got conduit access at the bottom of the winglet, about mid-chord. Could/should I install the antenna part of the "V" 1/2 way up the winglet, with the ground-plane part of the "V" along the lower surface of the wing, or is that a plain bad idea? Follow-up question: If a winglet-install of a COM at this stage is not a good option, what is the next-best spot, in y'alls opinion? Underside of gear legs? Fuselage sidewall? Any advice appreciated.
