Quote from: lordmonar on February 24, 2009, 08:06:45 pmThat does not sound right.A lot of the 406 beacons are for marine operations...that means the beacon WILL move over time. Granted a lot of the aviation beacon may not have this issue.
Quote from: http://www.ackavionics.com/pdf/E-04%20FAQ.pdfHow does the ACK E-04 handle the GPS data input?The E-04 receives the data input from your GPS at the same rate your GPS outputs the data.(Typically once per second) The ELT uses the last data received from your GPS as its locationwhen the ELT is activated either manually or by the crash sensor.
Quote from: http://www.acrelectronics.com/aquafix/aquafixman.pdfWhen the AquaFix™ 406 GPS I/O is turned ON, the GPS Onboard receiver is also immediately turned ON and will immediately begin acquiring data. As soon as the GPS receiver acquires good positioning data the red LED will stop blinking and the green LED will begin flashing once every 2 seconds. Once good global positioning data has been obtained, the GPS receiver waits for 20 minutes before looking for new positioning data again.
Quote from: http://www.acrelectronics.com/aquafix/aquafixman.pdfThe AeroFix™ 406 GPS I and GPS I/O are equipped with a GPS Interface. Prior to activating your P-ELT you can download your GPS LAT/LON into the P-ELT using an external GPS receiver and the GPS Interface cable provided with the P-ELT. Once your external GPS has acquired good global positioning data, press the GPS test button for at least ½ second and no longer than 5 seconds and your GPS data will download into the P-ELT (for full instructions see Section 4.7.2). Once you activate your P-ELT, your GPS coordinates are included in the distress signal. The green LED will immediately start flashing every 2 seconds to alert you that your P-ELT is activated and transmitting your GPS coordinates with the 406 MHz signal.
Quote from: ♠SARKID♠ on February 25, 2009, 05:41:03 amSo if I understand this,ELTs with external GPS sources should have updated lat/long every minute (presumably because an external source will have its own power and wont compromise beacon longevity?)If the ELT has its own GPS, it will update every five to twenty minutes.Do I have that right?
Quote from: Major Lord on February 25, 2009, 02:27:30 pm I think just knowing that you can receive the 406 signal is an excellent piece of additional information when conducting an OTG search.
