  1. I only sent my receipt to the FAA for my rebate and was approved. They ask for proof of purchase or a 337.
  2. I was approved 5/2 and the check came yesterday (5/18). Not too bad.
  3. I suppose that is possible for an owner with multiple aircraft. I was the one applying for the rebate and have only one aircraft registered in my name.
  4. I did have to confirm it was a new installation then I received the below email. Please email us the documentation showing that you have installed certified uAvionix skyBeacon. We will not be able to approve your rebate claim without the documentation. Please send us a jpeg file if possible and make sure it does not exceed 5 mb. We will need evidence of new ADS-B avionics installation with following methods: 1.Clearly visible bill of sale indicating the owner’s name, equipment and part number, serial number and date of purchase or uAvionix packing slip or 2. A copy of the FAA Form 337 that includes the above information. Documentation should be submitted to It wasn't an issue since I had proof of purchase but it was just another hoop that I wasn't expecting.
  5. I actually had to show proof of purchase before having my rebate approved. Did anyone else?
  6. rebate was approved 5/2/19...waiting for it to show up in the mail now.
  7. Finally! After two MCF flights and speaking with uAvionix about a few things I did my 30 minute flight for the rebate this morning and received my GAIRS Report and code and submitted for the rebate. Installing the Skybeacon coincided with my first annual in which my autopilot was repaired as well. During the down time I also built a Stratux and tested it on the flight this morning...Traffic was flowing into my EFB! Thanks to everyone with the recommendations from this thread.
  8. I've had a response from uAvionix regarding the Skybeacon. They seem to think it was just a threshold setting issue where even 35% was too high but the second flight with a threshold of 20% was too low. I raised my threshold to 30% and flew to dinner through a mode c veil so I requested my report...No failures! I will attempt the rebate flight again soon.
  9. @Alan Fox came through...thank you
  10. I did put a support ticket in with uAvionix... I am flying in a mode C veil each time not talking to ATC so squawking 1200 the whole time. Enclosed are screenshots of the PAPR's
  11. Ok...yesterday I had a mode 3A failure so I reduced the threshold. I flew again today and had a flight ID failure but mode 3A was good. Anyone know what to do?
  12. Just had the same result...will change the threshold value and try again. It was picking up the squawk code on the ground before take off.
  13. Yes...if the nav light switch is powering your skybeacon.
  14. At the airport strobe power supply is the second inspection plate in towards the has 4 extra screws...
