Trig TA50 Compact GPS Antenna – 118″



Trig TA50 is a space-saving antenna perfect for gliders, light sport, or experimental aircraft where mounting options are limited and space is tight. The TA50 is a highly compact uncertified GPS antenna, typically attached to the cockpit glare shield. Trig TA50 antenna is weatherproof and can be mounted externally. It has been developed to provide trouble-free operation with the TN72 GPS Position Source.

The TA50 comes complete with a secure and reliable QMA connector – this plugs straight into a TN72 GPS unit. Using a TA50 antenna and a TN72 together is a cost-effective way to turn your Trig Mode S transponder into an ADS-B Out device. Use the TA50 as part of your ADS-B solution to get all the benefits of greater visibility and safety.
