For a complete ADS-B out solution using the 6401-1 you will require a certified WAAS source such as a Garmin GNS/GTN series navigator or, other WAAS GPS source and, an altitude encoder.
This transponder does not have a built in WAAS module and as such, cannot be paired with a WAAS antenna for ADS-B out. It must be connected to a WAAS GPS based navigator, such as the GNS 480 via a RS-232 data line in order to supply ADS-B out.
