What Is This Hump On The 77W?

Fri Oct 08, 2010 10:00 pm

Looking at this photo of the new 77W for TK, I saw a peculiar hump just aft of the fwd ACL. Looking at another 77W for Korean Air, the hump is absent on it? Does anyone know what this is? Internet? Sat TV?

Looks to be the Antenna found on a/c with Live TV.
What gets measured gets done.
