I was able to reuse the same mount as for my old ACK ELT. I had to bend the mount slightly to keep the antenna from hitting the tubes on the seat support, as the new antenna sits at an angle to the base.

I know that this location is far from optimal, as there is no good ground plane. But, the RV-8 doesn't provide any mounting locations that meet all the requirements laid out in the ELT manual, as you well know.

Cool. Unfortunately, that's NOT where I mounted my 121.5
antenna, but I think that is where I will mount the 406. What

Thanks, Kevin
