The AV-10 is designed for high-performance aircraft applications. It exhibits excellent electrical characteristics and incorporates an efficient aerodynamic 4-bolt mounting base. The antenna essentially matches the styling of the communication antennas currently used on most singles and light twins. The antenna is designed to operate at speeds up to 350 mph and altitudes up to 50,000 ft. It has a drag force of 2.70 lb @ 250 mph.
This seems to be a well-made antenna and less expensive that virtually the same antenna from competitors. Also, it comes with all the pieces of hardware needed to install it and has an easy-to-follow diagram so it is very clear what plate / rubber gasket / etc goes where.
With my old antenna I could not pick up my AWOS in the air let alone on the ground. After installing the Rami Av-10 my reception has improved 500%. I will by buying one for my other comm radio. Thank you!
Specs are very good, and this antenna is very well made. Comes with all necessary hardware, and matched the footprint for common Piper antenna perfectly. Looking forward to a good, long service life.
