Default Section 53: ELT mounting and hookup

How many people know this section exists? maybe I should make this a poll thread.

It should come when you order the RV14 ELT kit. Mine did not include the plans pages but they emailed me a copy and I printed at copy store.

If you are using the artex 345 it's completely different, fyi.

I am at about the point to order the ELT and looking at the Artex 345. Any thoughts or critics of using Artex 345 instead? It can accept GPS data, a bit heavier but better battery life time.

I ran into major problems with freight with the recommended unit due to battery capacity.
I couldn't even get it on in hand luggage.
Is there a recommendation out there on an alternative please.

I don't have it yet but am planning to use the Artex 345. It just looks better quality to me than the ACK unit and one nice thing about Artex is they support the ability to do a full test to verify the satellite is getting the signal and correctly identifying your unit. To the best of my knowledge other ELT suppliers don't provide that service so you'll never know for sure that it works unless it's activated in an emergency.
