    FWIW, Anonymous mode will only mask your registration number for purposes of privacy from web site trackers. You still broadcast your ICAO number, so the FAA still knows who you are.

    The 1090-ES system is a RADAR transponder. The FAA isn't going to eliminate RADAR. The ADS-B system is to "enhance" radar. This was the next step after Mode-S, and they gave many of us a less...

    You've probably already done this, but I would verify the ICAO and N Number were saved correctly in the configuration first. If it's not that, I'd give uAvionix a call. I would expect this to be...

    Agreed. The output from the transponders are typically 200W, so basic reception typically isn't a problem. However, overmodulation and distortion certainly can be with some units, although I have...

    NIC = Navigation Integrity Category
    That indicates that the internal GPS is likely not working correctly. I would think uAvionics would swap that out without question. Should be an easy fix. ...

    The interrogation of the transponder usually comes from radar sites. Some areas of the country have sketchy coverage. Any time a Mode-C transponder replies to an interrogation, it sends the squawk...

    I'd be curious as to what is failing in your PAPR report? The uAvionix units typically fail with either Mode 3A or Baro Alt. When they fail with those errors, it's typically due to poor radar...

    I had one of those conversations with the ADS-B Nazis in DC as well. The guy was polite, but inflexible. He told me my altitude reporting wasn't working correctly (actually, it wasn't reporting...

    A friend of mine had one back in the early 80s in Toledo, WA. Nice plane. As previously mentioned, the large vertical stab and small rudder limit the crosswind capabilities, but otherwise a nice...

    Make sure you don't have an up and down area in the fuel line routing. I've seen this when the aircraft in question had an extra long flexible line between the gascolator and carb, so had some of...

    I moved here after 32 years in the dry cool air of the mountains of northern NM. The summer humidity here makes the air thick enough to slice and serve on a plate at times. But that's why we have...

    The LiFePo4 chemistry is significantly different from the LiPo. It's less prone to over heating, and if overheated, will not decompose like a LiPo. The Phosphate based Cathode will not burn and is...
