SUB Antenna Placement

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have inherited a 3 foot long sub, and the antenna is just balled up in the bottom.
Should the antenna be in the conning tower, or running the length of the ship?...or should it be fed outside, trailing along outside the sub.
Thanks in advance.

Re: SUB Antenna Placement

Not on the outside that will cause major control problems and possible water ingress. Run it the length of the sub and have it end at the highest point of the conning tower, that's about your safest bet.Keep it as close to the hull as you can to that way there is less problems with reception just keep in mind your maximum depth is 2 metres after that the water will block the RX reception.
