Default Nav antenna

Howdy to again,
Just looking for some input on what the RV10 guys are using for their nav antenna. Thinking on mounting it on the bottom of the tail cone..
Thanks again

Does the nav/strobe lights, landing lights effect the operation of the antenna?

Standard (incandescent) nav lights and Whelan strobes - no effect.
HID landing light - I can hear a slight increase in background static during the first 3 seconds after the lights are turned on. After that back to normal.

Default Thanks all

Thanks all,
By the way, I'm using DELTA POP for com, transponder, ads-b. Wishing he made a nav antenna. Seems like everybody likes them and they are priced well.
