ELT Wiring and some other things
March 21, 2021 – I made the wiring harness for the ELT.
The connector that came with the ELT was a new one for me. The pins are solder cups, so the wires are soldered into the connector. I’d never dealt with this before but it was fairly simple. I ran a shielded 3-wire bundle through the airplane to check for length, then pulled it back out and terminated the ELT end.
I added a nutplate to the ELT mounting bracket, and made a bracket one bulkhead back for a clamp so I could secure the antenna coax.
Then I riveted the antenna doubler and installed the antenna.
On to some other items…
Airport friends came back and we pulled the wings again so I could finish what had to be done before permanently installing the wings next time.
I also installed boots on the battery cables and installed the hold-down bar.
