Kannad Aviation FAQ
You bet. The Kannad Universal Mounting Tray fits pretty well all legacy 121.5MHz ELTs, so changing over the unit is simple. You can generally use the existing co-axial antenna cable, though you will of course have to change the antennas. With the choice of Remote Controls offered by Kannad Aviation, there is a replacement to fit the panel holes of every legacy model. The last job, then, is to replace the end fittings on the remote control cable. It is simply a matter of cutting off the old connectors and soldering on the Kannad ones. From April 2011 you will be able to order retro-fit installation kits for all other brands, with pre-assembled cable fittings, making retro-fitting even easier, and taking away the need to do any soldering.
