What types of antenna are used in the Piper Seneca PA34-200 and where are they are located? The manual is not giving the specific answer to the question. Also, what is the frequency range of the antennas?

  • $\begingroup$ You may not be looking in the correct manual. For Cessna for comparison, there is the POH, the parts manual, a seperate engine manual, and a seperate electronics manual. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to aviation.SE! We have a generic question on light aircraft antennas already that might be helpful, although it doesn't give specific details of the PA34. And this question has some information about frequencies, but the details (e.g. frequency spacing) may be different in different parts of the world. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Unless you get the plane right from the factory, the manual won’t help much. This post answers the question. aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/44305/… $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Are you trying to get a full list of every antenna on the plane and its frequency? What use would such a list be? $\endgroup$ Oct 29 '18 at 14:14

There can be quite a few antennas:

  • VHF Comm

  • VOR

  • Localizer

  • Glide slope

  • DME

  • ADF

  • Transponder

  • Marker beacon

  • GPS

  • ELT with integral GPS receiver

  • ELT

  • FM Receiver

You can search for antenna at a site like chiefaircraft.com to see what they look like and the frequencies they are designed for. Or go to a manufacturer website, like COMANT Industries, for the same.

Some may have multiple functions in one antenna.

Typical locations:

  • Top of fuselage/wing, (VHF comm, GPS)

  • bottom of fuselage (belly), (transponder, marker beacon, VHF comm)

  • top of tail, (VOR, glide slope)
