Hi to All

I am at the point of getting an ELT with antenna, radio and transponder and wonder what others are using?

I am going to use a GRT sport glass panel and maybe use its autopilot system, any feedback of your choice

would be welcome. Bill

Hi Bill

Not a recommendation but a related question-after researching the FAR my conclusion is that the ELT is truly the only piece of avionics one must buy to fly, is that your understanding as well?

Yes Jim I think you are right

Hi

I have an Ameri-King AK-451 ELT. It seemed like a good choice when I bought it, but with the problems they had with the FAA this spring I would consider an other brand if I was buying now.

For the radio and transponder my criterias were mostly price, weight and panel size.

I have a Sandia Aerospace STX-165 transponder. Works great and easy to install with the build in encoder.

I use a Flightline FL-760 radio. Works very well for communications but the built in intercom is not that good and the music input is mono. I heard good feedbacks about the MGL V6 but it was not available when I bought my avionics. 

I attached a picture that shows most of my instrument panel. There is a glove box behind the Ipad mini.

Regards,

Francois

Thanks Francois I have been looking at artex 345 and the ACK E-04 ELT but they each need an out side GPS source

I think they accept GPS input but can be used without it. At 406 MHZ the precision is pretty good.
