Bringing 21st century magic to a prewar airplane.
When you have an 80 year old airplane one must be creative on how thingsand mounted in the cockpit. Some wood screws and Velcro allows the mounting cradle to sit on the left side of the hat shelf next to the window for great reception without overheating.The new cradle slipped right in place of the old one. A 5 min change out.I elected not to use the Ram Mount suction cup part that came with it as in spoiled the look during airshows and required cleaning the rear window when removed.

Combine a Stratus and an ESG
I've been using a Stratus 2S for a while. I recently added an Appareo ESG transponder to my panel. This cradle allows me to mount the Stratus behind the panel rather than on the glare shield or attached to a window. Out of sight, out of the way, almost forgotten.

I installed the Appareo interface, to connect the Stratus to the ESG for power and to the new antenna on top of the airplane for signal. (There is a Stratus setting that turns it on when it gets power, and turns it off when power us cut.)

(I could have disassembled the RAM mount I was using for my Stratus 2S, but I want to keep it to use with my 'old' original Stratus when I'm in other airplanes.)
