Production uAvionix Skybeacon UAT transmitter

Recommended Posts

Received and installed the production Skybeacon.  Working on the appropriate spacing from our carbon wingtip and GPS sensitivity to ensure consistent reception.  More to report soon :)

Going well, the satellite reception is much better now.  Should be flight testing next week and will see how the ADS-B performance reports go.  The Skybeacon is only a UAT transmitter so is the "out" only. They are working an "in" version that will replace the other nav light.

I reached out to uAvionix on a potential interface with Garmin, specifically the 795:

Quote

Please know that we’d already support sending ADS-B WX and Traffic to the 795 and other Garmin product, but they do not allow 3rd party integration.  We’ve asked and tried many times.  If they open their development model, then yes it will be added promptly.  But with Garmin’s track record, I would not count on it. 

Probably not gonna happen anytime soon.
