Avionics Info - Antennas:
N93KK has lots of avionics so there are many antenna-like things poking out of the fuselage.   Someone asked for a comprehensive listing of which antenna thingy belongs to what avionics thingy.   So be it.... 

  • The COMM's are attached to the two matching white antenna's on top of the cabin that point towards the rudder.  COMM#1 is the left one,  COMM#2 is the right one (pilot's perspective)
  • The NAV's are attached to the V antenna at the top of the rudder.
  • The ELT is attached to the thin metal whip antenna (pigtail top, rubber boot bottom) on top of the empennage, directly behind the cabin.
  • The GPS antenna is a 3" flat dome on top of the empennage, directly behind the cabin.
  • The Transponder antenna looks like an upside-down shark's fin on the bottom of the fuselage.  It is about 3 inches long and is the most rearward antenna on the bottom of the fuselage.
  • The Marker Beacon is about 2 feet forward of the Transponder antenna and looks like the hull of a sailboat.  It is about 10 inches long and about 4 inches tall.
  • The ADF system consists of two antenna's, a long sense-antenna wire that connects the top of the rudder to the top of the cabin, and a loop-antenna that is housed in a 6"X3"  box on the bottom of the fuselage in front of the Marker Beacon.
  • The 20" L-shaped bent-looking antenna on the bottom of the fuselage near the firewall is a spare antenna that was in the past used during the plane's Civil Air Patrol days.  It is no longer connected to any avionics equipment.
