Here we go...

$45...I was $15 off. I am going to look into this some more, but it definately seems very promising.

Ideas

Matt,

I don't like the fact that these things are produced and anyone can use it on a freq that requires a license. I would much rather see a FARS radio used and the receiver can be used to DF the transmitter.

License

Anyone can acquire equipment that requires a license. Individually responsibility should prevent you from using it illegaly. I have a license so I didn't think about that. How about doing something on 2.4 ghz or 900 mhz. We are talking about a low powered transmitter which would meet those requirements. How about putting it on one of the R/C 72 mhz frequencies and use two of the frequencies when you fly. That is a bit cumbersome when you fly at a club with an impound box but there are still guys who fly the old illegal wide-band stuff and have to use three of our current frequencies.
It could even transmit on the same frequency your R/C transmitter is on because it only comes on when your transmitter is turned off.
Regards, John

I see what you guys are saying...there are also some UHF transmitter/receiver modules that could be used, I think in the 2.4 ghz range. I will look into them. I am interested in doing the information downlink, so it can't be on the same channel as the plane's equipment, and I would really prefer to get pre-designed RF modules, I don't have much experience with RF stuff at all.

I was planning on the liscense anyway, so that was not as much a concern.
