    Airbox Doc generally has a good rep, but I did correspond with one guy who had a very unsatisfactory experience with him.
    I think I'd go with Atlee Dodge.

    I'm amazed that Web is the only person to suggest this.
    That would be my first thought.
    Just fix it.

    Sounds like different customs offices have different interpretations of the rules.
    Kinda like different FSDO's.

    unfortunately it wasn;t cuz he crashed, they just lost them.

    I was told by uAvionix that hitting the ident button on your transponder "pings" your Tailbeacon with a 1200 squawk,
    after which it will send out an a anonymous ID.

    I dunno if VirTower tracks both 978 & 1090, I would assume so.
    But although close by, my airport is not within ADSB "rule airspace" so not everyone who flies in has ASDSB.
    So I'm sure lots of...

    Poor advice IMHO.
    They do that, and it'll turn out that the person who buys it really wants a 180hp.

    The tailbeacon will show your tailnumber until your transponder is pinged and the tailbeacon reads it as squawking 1200.

    Thinking back to my 170 days, I'm pretty sure that's a mod that requires some sprt of approval,
    and I don't think there's an STC.

    My take would be that it was an "established airport" if it was registered with the FAA.
    There's lots of airports that are registered but uncharted.

    I would say 91.119(a) covers that:
    "anywhere-- an altitude allowing, if a power unit fails, an emergency landing without undue hazard to persons or property on the surface".
