Part# 11-15209

Overview

The echoUAT is a Class B1S ADS-B UAT transmitter coupled with a dual-link 1090MHZ / UAT receiver. An integrated Wi-Fi system transmits traffic and weather to popular Electronic Flight-Bag (EFB) applications on iOS and Android, including ForeFlight Mobile. Direct interface support for common EFIS systems such as Dynon SkyView, GRT and MGL. A zero-install, internal wireless monitor decodes replies from legacy Mode C transponders for maximum retro-fit capability. Extensive position source compatibility, including the uAvionix SKYFYX GPS.

The echoUAT meets the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227.

SkyFYX combines a high precision WAAS GNSS sensor with an integrated RAIM processor. Resilient against jamming, spoofing and GPS range errors—SkyFYX provides reliable navigation in challenging environments. SkyFYX is the most affordable ADS-B rule-compliant position source companion for the echoUAT ADS-B transceiver.

The SkyFYX meets the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227. For use in Experimental and LSA aircraft.

Reviews

Just an update to the initial review. I have to upgrade it to 5 stars. I called UAVionix customer support to get some input for trouble shooting the issue with barometric altitude output. Curt from support answered right away, was very knowlegable, and provided several trouble shooting tips. When I rang out the cable to the transponder I found I had squashed the serial connection wire in the DB9 shell and shorted it to the case. Easy fix, and the subsequent test flight produced a perfect score on the Public ADS-B Performance Report. In addition, Curt knew the cause of the faint 1 hz popping noise. The new UAT antenna is mounted too close to the COM antenna. There isnt really a better mounting position available, and the noise is very faint during taxi and inaudible in flight so its a non-issue.

I ordered, received and installed the Echo and SKYfyx last week. Its a fairly complete kit and includes wire harnesses, remote GPS antenna and UAT antenna (slightly shorter than a transponder antenna). Mounting screws, antenna male-male adapter and printed instructions were NOT included, but fortunately I had the parts on hand. Cards with the URLs for the manuals were in the box. Curious that the provided stub coax cable (about 10 long) had a female end on it like the antenna. To configure the UAT an app has to be downloaded to your phone or tablet. The app was easy to use and can be used as a monitor as well to see what the transmitter is outputting. On the first flight I was able to obtain a Public ADS-B Performance Report. The PAPR indicated some of the barometric altitude reports had issues so that has to be troubleshooted yet. It was a short, low altitude flight so it may be that a longer higher altitude flight may be fine. I installed a serial connection between my Sandia 165 and the UAT with unshielded wire so maybe that has to be upgraded. The install also seemed to introduce a faint popping noise into the intercom on the pilot side. The ADSB in is working fine and showing traffic on my iFly. So far it seems like a good system for the money

Q&A

Q: Will this ADS-B unit work without the MODE C transponder?

The Echouat transponder monitor works with your legacy Mode C transponder. There still needs to be a Mode C transponder installed in your aircraft.

Yes, this will bundle traffic and weather to your Android tablet.

Q: What antenna is included with this UAvionix Echouat Bundle?

The UAT(978) antenna comes with the kit.

Q: Regarding the external GPS antenna that comes with the SkyFyx - what is the connector on the end of the cable - MCX male or female? What is the length of the cable?

The cable for the GPS will have a male MXC connector and is 6 feet in length.

Q: Will this Uavionix EchoUAT bundle in conjunction with a mode C transponder fulfill the 2020 mandate?

Yes, this bundle will work in conjunction with a mode c transponder for 2020 compliancy.

Q: Does this bundle in conjunction with a mode C transponder qualify for the FAA $500 rebate program?

Please refer to the FAA ads-b rebate page for more information on qualifying units.
