I have a C-182 with a transponder that is about to fail. Should I get a used replacement and wait for the new Code S transponder? Any suggestions appreciated. -Gene
1. You wouldn't be Gene Pileggi of FRG? That would make you my neighbor. Welcome either way! What make/model of transponder? Cavity tube style? Narco or other? Your answers will allow us to more accurately give you opinions on your options and alternatives.

2. Gene P from FRG? If so, you and I are neighbors of a fashion. May I ask the make/model/voltage of your transponder? Cavity tube? Easiest and least expensive is a rack compatible replacement, but depending on what era of equipment you're replacing, it might be time to go modern and get rid of the cavity tube.
Give us some answers and an opinion will be forthcoming.
