    Neither Sat WX, SS nor ADS-B is radar. Never will be.

    Thinking that it is will bite you hard.

    Those are best described as strategic tools.

    ADS-B plus even a simple radar is good because they represent fundamentally different tools.

    If I could find radar & pod for my Bonanza, with some kind of reasonable installation, I would. But as it happens, a suitable radar, pod and display plus install would be north of $25k, and that's using surplus, very used items for a very, very basic install (think no stabilization).

    For that money, you might as well buy Baron radar, and it comes in a Baron shaped container (with de-ice).

    Yeah, I was looking at maybe upgrading my radar to one of the new digital units, and it was going to cost something like $50k installed. I decided my old KWX-56 would be just fine. :)

    Do you hear that often?

    (Sorry Todd, you left yourself wide open for that)

    One of the things I miss the most since starting in the 121 world is NOT flying on raw data. I'm not sure why.
