Stratus 2S with ADSB and GPS antenna

Since I installed a FlightStream 210, my Stratus 2S is surplus to requirements. The ADSB and GPS antennae allow you to mount it under the instrument panel if desired. Also includes case, two different types of mounts and suction cup. $300 plus shipping. Please PM if interested. Bernie
