Default Archer Comm Antenna in RV4

Does anyone have experience installing an Archer Comm antenna in an RV4? I'm consider the Archer model 1A.

Thanks.

Jeff, there have been multiple threads on VAF over the years concerning the Archer antennae. I have the NAV antenna in my RV-6 and it offers good performance. But the Archer COM antenna has a much less favorable field history, offering considerably less performance than a standard whip antenna mounted on the airframe exterior. it is unlikely you would be happy with the COM antenna if you expect performance similar to a whip antenna.
