Default WTB AK-450 ELT

My Ameri-King AK-450 121.5 ELT bit the dust. Not sure what I want to do yet so I thought I would see if someone had an old 450 or a 121.5 ELT lying around that they wouldn't mind selling me.

I have an extra AK-451 (406Mhz unit) I just replaced. It includes the remote switch, permanent antenna, temporary antenna, remote buzzer, cable splitter, 20ft "telephone" cable, mounting bracket (not needed if replacing AK-450) but needs batteries. PM me if interested.

FYI - I've heard from two avionics shop techs locally that they will not service AK-450's anymore, as AK has "gone dark" when anyone contacts them to ask anything. They can't contact AK to confirm that the test specification for them is still current, so they can't verify that your AK still meets its certification.

And nobody wants an AK-451. It's now a paperweight.
