Still giving me fits, my ACK-04 goes off after dusting the airplane

I thought I had solved this issue, I found a connector that might not have been fully seated and replaced the battery in the beeper and control panel units just to be safe. I've rechecked all of the...

Skyradar receiver in my RV7a

I've been using the Skyradar reciever for a few months now in northern Arizona and it's been great. I got tired of writing a check to XM and I'm glad I switched. I use WingX on my iPad 2 and the WX...
