Abstract : An investigation of the chosen antenna and location including installation and flight test data of dragless antennas for VHF Homing Equipment in the F-80, F-86, and F-84 Jet aircraft. The report includes samples of radiation patterns of modeled antennas on modeled aircraft, artist sketches of flight tests, pictures of aircraft after installation of antennas and equipment, artists profile sketches of equipment installed and brief results of the various flight tests conducted on the operative equipment. From the study and tests it is concluded that the antennas and equipment so installed result in a satisfactory and usable VHF (Flush Mounted) homing antenna and equipment installation for the F-80, F-86, and F-84 airplanes.
