Brief Description:  Test ELT for position reporting

I moved the plane out of the garage so the gps antennas could look for satellites. I powered up the Skyview and the GTN650. Both units acquired satellite signals. I followed the instructions for the ACK E-01 ELT and made up an LED test lamp. I hooked up all the wiring to the ELT and turned it to the “ARM” position. The instructions caution that the LED is hard to see in daylight—and it surely was! I finally got enough shade over the critter and sure enough there was a tiny blinking light which indicates that the Skyview is sending a signal to the ELT. Supposedly, this signal is the exact lat/long coordinates of where the plane is sitting. Dunno—guess I’ll take their word for it. I removed the test lamp and crawled into the tailcone (not my favorite hangout). I installed the ELT and secured the wiring with zip ties. Next, I installed the rest of the flooring and the rear seat frame. I received a shipping notice that the interior seats and side panels should be delivered Monday—yippee!
