Short Description:  Install Garmin GPS/XM Antennas

1630 - 1830

After discussing location, installation, and grounding of the GA-35 and GA-57x antennas, I located and mark the appropriate locations on the cabin top.

The final position for the GA-35 is just left of centerline and between the doors. The GA-57X was place behind the door openings where the cabin top thickness is less. These locations should facilitate optimal view of the satellites and prevent any shadowing.

Next, the clearance and mounting holes were match drilled to the cabin top. The clearance holes for the RG400 were enlarged to 5/8" to pass a BNC or TNC connector.

I then mixed some epoxy/flox/cabo and applied it to the inside of the 5/8" holes. I then pushed a lubricated brass 5/8" rod through the holes to set the epoxy into the honeycomb center of the cabin top. This step probably was not necessary, however, the epoxy slurry will seal the walls of the 5/8" holes.

The remaining slurry was used to fill holes drilled in the cabin top for clecos.
