Hi Christoph,

I've just fitted a VOR/GS antenna on the belly of my Europa Tri-Gear just aft of the hatch for the central tunnel on the underside (see attached pic). It works a treat and it's all signed-off by the LAA inspector! It's a CI 157P antenna. You can either have the V of the antenna pointing forwards or backwards.

Just because metal fused aircraft needs external vhf antennae, does
not mean it is required for glass aircraft. It only adds drag.

BOB Archer makes a whole set of antennas for glass aircraft. Aircraft Spruce sells them. I put my VOR antenna in the wing. I can get a good signal fifty to sixty miles away.

I hope you have not closed out your wing. If you have then you could built a Balun antenna.
