flarm antenna placement by Matt Herron Jr.
Still looking to improve my flarm range especially below. I have a Trig T22 fin antenna on the bottom of my 27. Can I somehow incorporate the receive only flarm antenna into this fin? Too close to the transponder? RF engineers speak up! Thanks, Matt

Soaring rides in Tahoe by [email protected]
My wife and I are visiting Tahoe this Fall and considering a sailplane ride.. I've found TTSA and Soaring NV, perhaps there are more that offer rides. Anyone know these and can comment on whether one is better than the other or if there's a better option? Thanks.
