Antenna Mounting

6/21 1015 ground shields, drill left com antenna, add tab to tail post 1235 2.4 hours
This morning I connected the rest of the audio shields to each other. I didn’t have any of the one-ended crimp-on terminals so I just used one half of a yellow crimp-on splice. I found a good spot for the VHF Communication antenna out past the fuel tank, and drilled a mounting hole for it and the grounding screw. I’ll put one just like it on the other side, which will allow for easy connection for the handheld VHF radio.

I wanted to come up with some method for stabilizing the VHF Navigation feedline in the vertical stabilizer. I added this tab so that I can have something to clamp the feed to.
