Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
I'm really frustrated by the lack of instructions on where and when and how to install antennas. I understand that Zenith can't predict what equipment everybody wants to install but a basic guide to where and how to install an ELT, transponder and COM antenna would be nice. Without such a thing, I am stuck, stuck, stuck.
I was getting ready to rivet the fuse parts together when I realised that if I do that I can't easily get behind the baggage back to put things there. So I've been looking into where to put antennas and boxes but there are so many questions - where to locate them, how to install them, how to get at them for inspection when everything is finished etc etc. Maybe that doesn't matter, looks like lots of folks rivet them together without antennas - hard to tell.
I'm a total beginner, relying on the manuals and the DVD and the kind folk here and at Zenith. I don't have the ability to just make something up like it seems everyone else has done in this area. Without some clear instruction I fear I am going to be stuck forever. It's too bad I am in BFE with no other home builders around.
So if anyone has some photos here that would be a good source of study for me, that would be great. I'm not up to anything fancy, just enough to be simple and to work.
