Re: ADSB In - Classic Cozy 3 Antenna Placement Experience

Wm Kezele

I placed my dipole in the backseat leg area, and used a Nickel based paint to create my ground plane. I don’t have the name of the paint handy but I can get pictures and send more data if you have interest it worked perfect.

Delete my last message, you are only talking about ADSB IN not OUT.

Hi Steve 

Aren’t you concerned about transmitting high power so close to your head?

I made a wideband dipole out of brass tubing and mounted it on the back of the headrest (Longeze).  I use it for both bands and it works fine.  Sorry I don't have a better picture.

I know there has been a lot of discussion on the ADSB-In antenna placements a few months back, but curious to see what people are getting good results with in
a Classic Cozy 3 now that there has been a little more time and likely more experience.

I know there was the slot antenna and others, but I am thinking a 13"ish square foil for the dipole under the left thigh support.  I know it is a projection and subject to ridicule, but pretty simple and not a lot of changes / structure in the back seat area.

I am hooking up to a Dynon HDX system in a panel upgrade and it is about the last thing I have when my newly repaired ADAHRs gets back (static port failure....).

Feel free to contact me off line as I am sure most feel we have done this to death.
