The AV-17 came with a mounting kit that included all the hardware and a back plate. EZ installation and it works great.

Havenât had a chance to verify operation yet. Fit-up and appearance are excellent. This antenna replaced a similar antenna as part of an avionics upgrade that is not yet finished.

A very nice and well made com antenna, very straight forward installation, but be aware that in the accessories it surguests that you reguire a Rami installation kit 11-14059. The com comes with the kit so do not waste your money like I did.
