geeez John! That's a project in itself! Interesting, but wow!

So when you turn off your transmitter for plane 1, the locator transmitter starts transmitting. What happens when you turn your transmitter back on to fly the other airplane out there? And how, I dunno. Perhaps worth refining the idea some more and taking a look at it.

The handheld is, to me, a better alternative. Less risk and easier to just stop and verify. But if you're transmitting an electronic signal, why not just make it audible to need no special equipment to go after the plane. Make a louder beep is in effect (with a trans/rec combo) what you're suggesting, yes?
