    Kim, I'm having similar challenges with my setup: New Skybeacon and a Trig TT21. Adjusting thresholds, fly... rinse and repeat. Getting old. What setting did you finally land on?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    The TSO's Skybeacon finally passed the Performance Report without any red boxes!

    Finally! It has taken 3 months and 3 beacons to get this to work right, but now it does.

    It is a nice way to upgrade, but probably not that inexpensive if you want a matching light on the RH wing like I did.

    Andrew,

    The transponder threshold for mine is at 30. I have a GTX327, not sure if that will make a difference.
    Yeah, it took forever ......

    Thanks Kim. Still on first unit. When did it become apparent that the unit, and not the threshold setting, was the issue?

    25% Threshold setting did the trick in Boise. Who knew...
