Installed inside my Glasair far back in the tail. Allows maximum possible disrance from com antennas. Works perfectly with my Appareo 1090ES ADS-B out transponder. Will work with older mode C units but be advised it will NOT work with 978 or UAT ADS-B transponders. No ground plane needed!

Q&A

Q: As transponder antennas need to be installed in a vertical direction, will this antenna also need to be installed vertically? If so, what is the vertical and horizontal dimensions required for installation?

The model 5 antenna must be installed with the 6" side mounted vertically and the 7" side mounted horizontally.

Q: ADS-B uses the traditional transponder antenna (AV-22). Will this antenna be a suitable alternative to that antenna for ADS-B applications (978MHz)?

TED has released an ADS-B antenna. Please see part number 11-13561.

Q: Can this antenna be located near a comm antenna, and if so, how close?

At least 3 feet spacing is recommended.
