Default ADSB out check report from FAA

Greetings
I finished the install and configuration of my uAvionix Echo/GRT SafeFly gps unit the other day and have now done two flights. Everything seems to be working great, I’m getting weather and traffic, but there is no way of checking the out function from the plane, so I sent a report request via the FAA website. The email I received back from them says that my request failed to generate a result. Today I did another flight and checked in with Santa Barbara approach in flight and asked them to check. They responded that they had not yet been trained on ADSB but that they were receiving data from me and as far as they could tell it was working fine. Upon landing I requested another FAA report. Same “failed to generate a result” response, which to me means that their system never saw me at all.

Any ideas?
Thanks
Erich

Check FlightAware.com to see if you're 'in the system'. My buddy's 9A has ADSB and I can follow his flights from takeoff to touchdown, whereas I can only 'see' my plane if I'm on flight following.

The Echo is UAT. Flightaware and Flightradar24 track 1090ES. Make sure you get the right date in. Text me your plane info & date you flew & I’ll try to get a report.

As Jesse said, anytime after 5 pm Pacific is ‘tomorrow’ gmt.
Double check your N number and hexadecimal ICAO code are correct.

Make sure you have N2725R and hex code A2B101 in the unit.

Also, if you have enabled "stealth mode" when squawking 1200, you won't get a report. Must be transmitting your N-number.

I have no idea how to enable stealth mode. I just followed the GRT / uAvionix manuals.

I wasnt getting reports like you. I had 2 issues:
1)I mention this only to help you in your process in ruling things out because I have a 400W and you have a GRT. Turns out that I had not setup my 400W correctly. I had incorrectly told my 400W which wire was supposed to be talking to my Echo (in my 400W settings)
2) I had fat fingered the wrong ICAO code into my echo configuration app, and therefore was not getting any reports.

Really? I just installed the GDL-88 UAT ADSB device from Garmin and my plane showed up on Flight aware squawking 1200 and not talking to anyone!
