Brief Description: Fabricated doubler for ELT antenna
Again, a process begun on Saturday and finished Monday. I measured 30 inches forward of the rear of the top tailcone skin to determine where the ELT antenna would go (that insures 30 inches from the VS and there is more than 30 inches forward before there will be any other antenna). I created a doiubler from a piece of alclad that had been cut using a fly-cutter. I cleaned up the edges and marked eight rivet locations and then marked the skin to locate it. I drilled it to the skin from the outside and then drilled the hole for the antenna. Next, I moved it inside and tested the antenna fit, as you see in the first picture. When the tailcone skin was riveted, I also riveted the doubler to complete the task (those rivets are counted with the skin riveting).
