ADSB - Still looking for info and Photos of uAvionics Echo Install

Recommended Posts

I posted this a few weeks ago but did not get any response so I am not sure it actually posted.  

I have purchased the uAvionix Echo and SkyFYX ADSB set and wanted to see photos of the install if anyone has installed these units.

Thanks.

I’ve installed the Echo UAT. It is in the mushroom , right side, behind breakers . I have a CTSW with analog engine gauges. There was plenty of room. I did finally use the EchoMux cable to connect serial data for altitude encoder, and control from GTX327. See uavionix manual appendix C12 for the wiring. earlier i’d tried the trans monitor, but FAA test results were intermittently falling .

Submit for check at:https://adsbperformance.faa.gov/PAPRRequest.aspx

Sorry can’tt find pix of antennas.  I have the GPS up on the mushroom, near windshield with wire run through the air vent. I have the UAT antenna on the belly where the ELT used to be, near the static port.

In previous work, I’d put in a 406 ElT, and the antenna is now on the top. A  ground plane was built from copper tape.

FD did grant MRA for the uavionix echo.

see the ADS-B installation thread,. Has 3 pix.http://ctflier.com/topic/4438-ads-b-installation/?do=findComment&comment=68409
