Re: G-5500 WISP question



Hi,

I use the Wisp / KCT / G-5500 combination and it works very well, including
the flipping of the antennas for travel through North.

You will be limited to 360 degrees if you use the KCT and the ADC 255 steps
will equate to 1.76 degrees instead of 1.41 degrees per step.

Not a problem I've found with LEO and AO-10 but Mode S might be a bit more
sensitive. I'll find out this weekend!

regards
