This COM antenna is designed to be installed on the inside surface of the aft fuselage of composite and wood aircraft. It is a dipole that is folded to minimize the vertical dimension and requires 12" of fore and aft space and 26.5" vertically. It is designed for flexibility so it can match the internal curvature of the aft fuselage. Also works well in the vertical stabilizers of smaller aircraft. The VSWR is less than 2:1 across the COM frequency band.
All Archer antenna designs for both metal and composite aircraft are meant for internal installation in either fiberglass wingtips or fairings of some type in conductive aircraft or inside the structures of composite aircraft. They are mainly constructed of Alclad .016" thick 2024 aluminum strips arranged in a manner that allows tuning the antennas to a level beyond that of most antennas available today.
