Re: Uavonix ADSB

I installed that same system in my other plane. It works well. uAvionix has a specification for the minimum distance between the UAT antenna and your transponder antenna (3 feet maybe?), so make sure you keep that separation.
Ground plane size should be about the same as you have for your transponder (~6 inches square). The frequencies are very close, so you can actually use a standard transponder antenna for the UAT. That's what I did and as I said it works well.
I'm not planning to install ADS-B in my Q. It's pretty easy for me to stay out of rule airspace here in the midwest! Obviously you have a much different problem.
