Default Free Flight Ranger question

For those who are running a Ranger that?s working well in a side by side , where did you mount the top and bottom antennas. It came with a rod type transponder antenna and a UAT blade antenna. There?s a bunch of requirements about spacing and I?d love to know where you placed yours. I looked at Steins examples but he has nothing for the top antenna.

Default Bottom only

On my -6, Rod type antenna just behind the baggage area rear panel. Works just fine there. Transponder antenna is just behind firewall offset to one side.

Bottom UAT antenna should be the blade, 6' separation from the XPDR antenna is recommended.
No top UAT antenna required unless you reside in Canada.
GPS antenna on the top separated from other antennas as much as practical.
