Install comm antennas on wings and coax connectors. Will have to redo the connectors for the antennas. They will reqire 90 degree connectors to avoid interfering with the aileron pushrods. Tested both antennas.

Measured current draw on ebus. The bus takes 200 mA , I guess that's the LED. Seems like a lot. (edit, it was mostly the transponder). The GMA 240 takes 200mA, and the SL-40 takes 300mA in receive. So the buss draws 800mA with the radio on, monitoring.
