kschmitt replied to the topic 'The new (to me) 42" flexible antennas.' in the forum. 2 days ago

Thanks for the reply. I'm still expermenting with it. With the flat side fore and aft it only picks up when facing 90 degrees to either side. I am trying it turned so it should transmit and receive heading to or from a station. if this doesn't work well enough will put in a ground plate and go to a conventional whip antenna. Time will tell.

I had read various comments on the pros and cons of these antennas. So I tried one in the aft fuselage of a Taylorcraft BC12D. Installed in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. It worked, but not as well as I had hoped. I replaced it with a conventional antenna in the same location in the fuselage, with a ground plane. This works, but I still suspect an external antenna would function better. The aircraft structure seems to affect the radio signal. For instance, flying directly toward the station decreases reception compared to flying at right angles to the station. These are just my observations so far. And I readily admit to a very limited understanding of anything electronic. It's all pretty much magic to me.

How does it work? Might make a good article for Cub Clues. I have one in the shop we may but this on but I won't be to that point until later in the fall.

I installed one in another type aircraft, similar to a Cub. Just used a wooden slat of appropriate size as suggested in the manufacturer's instructions. Attached with Adel clamps where necessary. Fixed the antenna to the slat with a few wraps of electrical tape and a couple of tie wraps. An experienced avionics technician said the installation looked good to him.

That looks about right to me. You may want to consider the double pulley trim. Make sure the jackscrew is not upside down!

Hi all !

I just acquired a fantastic L4/J3C-65 build in 44, now registered in Belgium.

The engine is dead so now, my first target is to find one like a C-90 to replace the old A-65.
Can anybody help me to find a track to such engine?

As I'm new here, I can't find the way to order the back issues of the "Cub Clues Newsletters". :(
How can I do that ???

Rgrds

Bob







Regards,

clarcom created a new topic ' 1940 fuselage upgrade suggestions?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Redoing the family heirloom, a 1940 J3C-65. Looking for suggestions so that an important upgrade isn't discovered AFTER the fabric glue is setting!

Currently planned:
1. GW increase to 1220. Only thing left to do is swap out the gear fittings for 3/8 bolt ones. Big thank you to Cub Club and Joel Gehring (got article series from Univair)
2. Replace aileron fair leads with pulleys. Need the "Aileron Cable Pulley Installation article" from Cub Clues (#139?).

Considering:
A. Rear window frames (Univair supplied U10057-000 and U10058-000 )
B. Float fittings (Atlee Dodge)

What else? What other fuselage upgrades would you recommend? Ones that are best done before covering. Frame is currently on the rotisserie and ready for rework.
