So, I'm packing up the glider trailer and Grand Cherokee for a trip that will end at the Alamogordo Soaring Fiesta on the 29th. The space is very limited and I can't quite figure out how all the stuff is going to fit. Then something catches my eye. The spare wheel for the Komet trailer and the...

PDA mounts by Mhudson126
As the proud new owner of a PDA (oh yeah and a Discus to go with it), I'm looking for suggestions on how to mount it in the glider. Where is the best place to find a mount for it, and how are you running the wires? With all this "glass" in the cockpit, it's getting harder and harder to remember...

antenna installation in a glider? by ken ward
If you had to (re)install an antenna in a glider, how would you do it? What material would you use, what length would it be, how would you terminate the aft end, how do you get the aft end all the way back there and secured, etc? Thanks, Ken
