The modern tech is just amazing. 8)
Here is an ADS-B transmitter that can be fitted to replace the tail light in less than 10 minutes!

Edit: Mmm see it only works in the US at the moment (UAT 978MHz)

Hi Pete,

Very interesting tech solution - HOWEVER .....

Guys - Don’t Just go online and buy one 👎
I sent this link on to Clinton at Aeronautical for his comment

Be Aware, Boys and Girls - this unit will only work within US Airspace - it operates on the 970 MHz frequency within the terrestrial systems there

Which we don’t have here

Keep your credit card in your wallet - for now 😳
