    Default Magnetic antenna bases

    I'm looking for input regarding the Garmin and Sirius magnetic antenna bases supplied with these units. Has anyone noticed more than normal compass deviation problems while using them on the top mount area of the airframe under the plexiglass?
    Thanks, Tom

    I have installed them on the bracket at the aft end of the skylight and not noticed any compass issues.

    The smaller antenna you can open up and remove the magnets, done that before. Don't recall on the larger one if you can get it open and get the magnets out.

    I believe there are antennas available with no magnets in them. Don't recall the p/n difference though.
