406 ELT Antenna


Recommended Posts

I would use the manufacturer's recommendation and install it inside the cabin.


In a crash, planes tumble.. cartwheel... bulkheads crack. Wings shear, floors buckle. I would rather not add having to worry if the copper tape antenna survived on whatever surface it was bonded to.


If you had to roll your own, I'd make a metal whip, 1/2 wave or full wave...

Something that doesn't require a ground plane, and have the whip inside the cabin somewhere.. behind the seats.. something.
