I built my Longez over a 30 year period!  It was untouched for about 15 years. I finished after retiring and have put 500 hours on it since completing it in 2014.
Store it if you can and get back to it later.

I will store the project as it is and see if I can continue the mission in some years, or I will sell it if someone is interested. This is located in Norway, the market for these types of projects is rather limited.

It has been an interesting journey and I have met so many nice and helpful people in this community!

Yeah - ADS-B and Xponder antenna GP's are tiny - 5 - 6" diameter, and can live just about anywhere. But the GP for a 121.5 MHz ELT is large and a PITA. The dual dipole scheme on the seatback bulkhead is a fairly elegant solution.

I am helping a Cozy guy install a Transponder, ADSB and ELT.   Proposed locations for the Transponder antenna and ADSB antenna have been identified.  What have other canard drivers done for a ground plane for the ELT?

So you got a few answers for a ground plane for the Xponder and ADSB antenna, but not much for the ELT.

I'll first tell you what NOT to do, which is what I did on my plane (COZY MKIV). I decided that I needed to use  the whip antenna that came with the Artex ELT 345 that I bought, and that I needed to create a ground plane for it to be "legal". I painted the whole floor of the plane, both aft of the seatback bulkhead to the rear seat bulkhead supports, and forward of the SB Bulkhead, up to the front seat supports, with copper paint (EXPENSIVE!!!), and used conductive paint to tie the front and back together through holes in the seatback at the bottom. I then mounted a copper bracket to the floor and attached the whip antenna to that. I painted the floor with paint to protect the copper paint.

I've tested this using the satellite testing capability, and it works - the satellites receive the 406 MHz signal (at least when the plane is right side up, with me either in it or out of it).

But all that is a crapload of work and not worth it.

After a few long discussions on the COZY mailing list regarding ELT antennae in composite aircraft, the idea of dual dipoles was brought up (I think by Phillip Johnson, to give credit where it's due, IIRC). So when a customer asked me to install a 406 MHz ELT for him (the same Artex ELT345), I decided to try that scheme. Here's what it looks like on the back of the seatback bulkhead of his Long-EZ:

IMG_1278.jpeg

That's a brick of 99% pure heroin on the top of the seatback next to the fire extinguisher, in case you're interested. These planes are extremely cost effective... (that's a joke, son).

You can see the long legs of the dipole copper tape running up to the top of the headrest, and then down to the lower left corner of the seatback. You can see the short legs of the dipole off to the right of the center point, all partially covered by the plastic container.

I used this document from RST Engineering:

image.png

to determine the leg lengths, using the formula shown:

L = 2575/F

So the long lengths, for 121.5 MHz, I set to 21.2", and for 406 MHz, I set to 6.34". While we haven't yet tested it in communication with the satellites, it worked fine broadcasting on 121.5 MHz.

This whole process took maybe 4 - 6 hours to install, rather than the days I spent on my plane.

Hope this helps.

ELT Antenna Ground Plane again

Del Schier
 

Too bad we have to put antennas on our airplanes designed for metal airplanes!

 

The simple answer is to cover your airplane with aluminum and follow the installation instructions 😊

 

A not very cost effective solution, that would work well, is to buy a second ELT antenna and put them together with a T connector.

 

I forwarded the email from Andrew here as he used the cheap neat and simple solution.  Just a piece of wire  1/4 wavelength long at => 90 deg from the base of the antenna.  Two wires if you have a dual band ELT those wires should be spread out a little from each other.

 

As long as you provide "the other half of the antenna" you should get a good impedance match and most of the power will be radiated into space.  How you orient the antenna and wires should not be very important as you may crash sideways or up-side-down.

 

If you are in doubt of if it will work you can tape it in the airplane and measure the SWR on both frequencies.  A $70 NanoVNA works well for this.

Ok so I once again decided to listen to you guys.... I’m not using the fuel lines as my ground plane. 

 

Del did help me come up with a solution.  I learned from him that We don’t necessarily need to make a ground plane for the approved antenna but instead can use it the antenna as part of a dipole antenna.  I only had to install two wires as the other “half” of the dipole.  One is 7.3” long and the other is 24.3” (for the 406 and 121.5 mhz).  The antenna is horizontal in the strake baggage area, and Del says it will work fine in this configuration.  Thanks for keeping me on a good path.

Re: ELT Ground Plane???

Tim Andres
 

A 6” aluminum disk mounted to the floor is fine, let the antenna stick out the bottom at least partially. Its not suppose to matter but Ive seen it make a difference.  
On my Cozy, the transponder was mounted up in the nose, the ADSB was just forward of the MLG bulkheads under the rear seat. Both worked fine.

Steve:  My Transponder antenna is located in front of my left foot with the pin sticking through the fuselage floor.  The ADSb antenna and ground plane is a disk approximately 6" adjacent to the right side headrest.  Not the ideal but it works.

Columbia, CA Fly-In - 6/4 - 6/6

Marc J. Zeitlin
 

Folks:

For those of you who aren't on Tim Fisher's mailing list for some reason, the "Canards West" fly-in in Columbia, CA (O22) will be happening in a slightly modified manner this year. The airport and campgrounds are open, but the clubhouse at the campgrounds are not. So we'll be having a pizza dinner at a personal hangar on Friday night, then a fly-out for a pancake breakfast in Placerville (KPVF) on Saturday morning. After hanging out at the planes the rest of the day Saturday, we'll be having dinner at El Jardin on Saturday night. No presentations this year - just informal discussions.

See:


for more info, and see the "dinner" page to tell Tim what you want for dinner on Saturday.

See you there!

WHEN:
Tuesday July 27th, social hour begins around 5 PM BYOB-EER & chair.
 
$10 "donation" per person, hopefully food prices have not doubled, we'll know when we get there.
PLEASE bring a chair this year!
 
RSVP:
...as always, this is a test, based on previous years RSVP responses we have determined 70%
of you either drink a lot when you do your email or your skills at following the
simplest of written instructions are questionable, ...even if they come with "M" drawings.
We wish to thank the remaining 30% for making our lives easier.
So, if you are thinking of coming to the dinner, DO NOT HIT THE REPLY BUTTON!
Instead, please send us an email with a one line response:
 
Please do it like this:
 
email to: CozyGirrrl@...
Subject: RSVP
Body of text: # of people, name(s), email, cell
 
EXAMPLE of text: 2, Chrissi, Randi, CozyGirrrl@..., 867-5309
 
That way there will be enough food and beverage, you wouldn't want to run out would you?
There is a threshold where we may need to make a 2nd pot, so real numbers are important.
 
IMPORTANT:
1. If you RSVP, please make sure you do receive a "Thank You!" email from us within 48 hours.
2. Assume picnic tables are not available so bring a chair if you are able to scrounge one.
We will try to bring tables and any local people who bring some will be really appreciated!
3. No vehicles, there is absolutely no parking available, you must park in the very near by
BLUE lot and walk.
Towards the end of the day it is free, park up as close as you can get to the corner by the
Fly In Theater there is a walk through, very convenient.
4. Bicycles, golf carts, strollers etc must be off the road and not on our neighbors campsites.
5. We do not know of anyone who will be donating alcohol so feel free to BYOB or pass a
hat and we will make sure there is a run to Walmart for ICE COLD BEER.
There will be coolers full of ice.
6. =No animals!= ,we LOVE animals, just not when & where we are preparing and serving food.
7. If you RSVP in the 10 days before Airventure you will probably not receive an
acknowledgement from us we're either on the road or already there and EAA WiFi is spotty.
8. Count on mosquitoes! Spray yourself.
 
You will need your chair and maybe a blanket for the movie next door, It is too early
for the schedule to know what the movie will be Tuesday night at the Fly In Theater but it is usually good.
Count on mosquitoes! Spray yourself.
.... or stick around and socialize!
 
Our trusty band of well trained and highly skilled volunteers look forward to seeing you all there!

Putting your kit together today...will ship tomorrow.  I haven't had to make a large fuel gauge in a long time so had to blow the bubble make the back plate.  Where is your VE going to be based?

I suggest when you bond the bubble to the aluminum to do the smaller two first as the bigger one take more finesse.  if you have any questions give me a call  617 296 1940
