One of the devices has to be modified to support the same baud rate as the other, by the respective manufacturer.

The serial speeds need to match on both devices. 230k on one device and 256k on the other won't work...

Re: Probably a dumb questioin

I am using an EIS6000 with my Lyc O-320. Just needed to tie together the EGT and CHT for cyls 5 and 6 to cyl 4, so they have some values.

This is fed to a GRT HX system, and the HX is set to only display the first 4 cyls.

Works fine.

Re: ADS-B Anonymous Mode

the FAA thinks pilots will behave better if they think big brother is watching. Maybe they're right. I'm not convinced that is the case. I'm sure they realize the "bad" people likely know about a very simple invention called an off switch, or would just equip with a UAT versus ES, or woul...

Re: ADS-B Anonymous Mode

According to the algorithm in the documentation, using anonymous mode generates a unique, random 24 bit code. Each mode S would still have a unique code and still be individually addressable. I have not yet found a technical reason why the anonymous mode would not work equally as well for 1090ES tra...

Re: ADS-B Anonymous Mode

Read your document again. Mode S transponders must transmit their mode S address. Nothing else is allowed. UAT devices may transmit a random code if and only if a mode C transponder is being used. If mode S is being used then the random feature must be turned off. That seems silly. Someone must hav...

Re: ADS-B Anonymous Mode

No. Anonymous mode is only possible with UAT devices. All mode S transponders send your unique mode S address, so big brother knows who you are. IMHO this is not a big deal. Airspace rules are there for a reason, don't break them. If you do, expect to take your medicine. Not sure why you are bringi...

ADS-B Anonymous Mode

The ADS-B rules allow for an anonymous mode when squawking 1200. Details can be found in AC 20-165B starting on page 26: http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_20-165B.pdf I am using a GRT Mini-X as the control head for a TT22. Does the Mini support ADS-B anonymous mode? If no...

Re: mini-x

My understanding is that the Engine Display on the Mini is an optional add-on that you have to pay for separately, and the options do not appear until this is enabled.

$200 according to the price sheet:
