Default ADS-B (in) and Transponder Antennae

Does anyone know where the factory is putting these on the SLSAs? The fuselage frame has a couple antenna plates on the belly, but they appear to be closer than the recommended distance for ADS-B to Transponder. There are pretty obvious locations for the COM antenna on the top of the fueselage and the ELT inside. I was just curious if the factory had specific mount points for ADS-B and transponder.

Mike is not SLSA, itís experimental. I have the Dynon Skyview system and I mounted my transponder antenna and ADSB antennas on the plates on the bottom of the fuse. I have no issues after 60 hours. I flew the 1 hour test in a class B veil and the FAA report came back with no errors.

Thanks for the PIREP Mike. I was considering that, but had read that the antennae should be 5' apart.

You need to have the Dynon transponder and the Dynon ADSB module. Both are remote units and the functionality is integrated into the SkyView display.

To clarify, the most recent Dynon transponders are Mode-S with ADS-B out. So the "out" functionality is integrated with the transponder. To get ADS-B IN, you need an additional receiver that needs its own antenna.

For Dynon ADS-B out:
-Dynon Mode S transponder
-Dynon SV-2020 GPS antenna puck

For Dynon ADS-B in:
-SV-ADSB-472 module
-A separate dedicated antenna (Dynon sells one; it is nearly identical to a transponder antenna)

All integrates with the Dynon Skyview panel.
