    Default VOR / ILS antanna

    When I build my RV9 I placed a Archer VOR/ILS antenna in the wingtip. There was very little choice and the location makes it easy to service.

    On my Citabria, American Champion was able to place a traditional Y shaped antenna into the Vertical Stabilizer.

    I do plan to put a GTN650 into the panel. The GTN650 has a Nav Radio which will require an antenna.

    How, where and what type of antenna have you used?

    PS I do not plan to be flying approaches with my EX3. IFR (I Follow Roads) and GPS will be my primary form of navigation, but I like having a backup.

    These low profile, light weight airborne antennas are compatible with military, business & civil aircrafts ILS systems.

    I actually use these on my Commander. They work great but, will have to see how it will fit.

    I also thinking towards a Acher antenna. I will manufacture a flat Fibreglass sheet that fit into the wing tip and then fit the Acher and antenna onto the sheet. I have fitted one in my RV14 and itís working fine.

    Please tell me more about how you have implemented the antenna mounting.
