Next question. I am looking at potential ADSB-In antenna locations. My comm. antenna will be just aft of the front spar on the left side with the X-ponder antenna just forward of the F-807 bulkhead and between the right F-813 and 814 seat ribs. Just makes the recommended 36 in. separation. For the ADSB-in, I am seriously looking at the left side forward of the F-808 bulkhead and outboard of the F-818 baggage rib with minimum 24 in. separation from the X-ponder antenna. I think there’s adequate ground clearance at that location. With a forward battery, I could make a bracket for the Dynon ADSB-470 receiver to mount back there. Makes for a really short antenna cable run, but I don’t know for sure if proximity to the A/P pitch servo creates any issues. So, good choice or better options? I also welcome any and all recommendations on routing antenna cables. I am trying to absorb everything I can get about avoiding RFI and any other kinds of I that might cause problems. Gives me a headache.

Hi Stan,

I've got the NavWorx certified ADSB in my RV-8. I mounted the Garmin GTX-327 transponder antenna right in the middle right behind the main spar. I mounted the NavWorx ADSB antenna right behind the elevator bellcrank. Everything seems to be working fine. Attached are some pictures.
