Most of the orders are for the TailBeacon. We ordered 47 SkyBeacons but we have 133 people waiting for the TailBeacon. Because of the size of our order, uAvionix has made a special adapter for the Ercoupe tail cone, which is supposed to be provided with the unit.

The list for the TailBeacon will be closed after next Tuesday, March 19.

That is certainly good news for us newbies. Thanx much and we will await the message.

Just curious, r most of the orders for the tail beacon or the wing mount? I'll be going with the tail beacon because I want to keep the classic "bullet-type" position lights.

I'm wondering if an adapter will be needed to install the tail beacon, as the tail position light mounting hole seems larger than the newer ones. Any comments on that?

Lowen slow . . .

The list will close next week for the TailBeacon. SkyBeacons are bought and delivered.

To get on the list, send name, shipping address, phone, email and til number to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Price for the Tailbeacon, including shipping and insurance, is $1760 (retail is $1995).

Next week we will send the request for payment, and the clock starts ticking. The list closes, and payment must be received in the following two weeks. At that point the money goes to the distributer and we wait for the order and send them out. The two weeks for payment may stretch out if the TSOs aren't awarded when we hope they will be. But we are going to cut the list off next week.

Ken, Gene -

This is the latest (yesterday's) communication from the EOC (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.):

"The seller tells me we need to be ready to make payment on our TailBeacon order (now up to 133 units) in early April. They say they are ready to ship as soon as the TSOs comes through, expected by the end of this month.

Therefore, on March 19 I will send out a request for payment.

All payments must be made out to:

Larry Snyder - EOC

And sent to:
EOC ADS-B
PO Box 220
Pleasant Grove, AR 72567"

Gene, I’m pretty certain the buying group is closed. The SkyBeacons have been shipped and the TailBeacon shipping is imminent.

Patrick, I really like my little Becker though it did give me a problem recently and had to be rebuilt. In the meantime, I found a great deal on an avionics shop rebuilt Becker RT (the big, remote mount section) “just in case” for the future. I don’t believe they make them anymore.
There are a ton of the one piece Beckers for sale in Europe after the mandated frequency upheaval.
Most of them, though. Are the one piece versions that will not fit in our panels. But if you keep looking, you might find the two piece. (control head and RT.)

BUT, if I was going NEW, I’d go for a Trig.
