Ditto... As a hardware/software/mechanical engineer, I enjoy all aspects of stuff like this (when I'm not pulling my hair out!). I do have to say, however, that I find amazed by how convoluted all...

You clearly know more about this than I do, that is for darned certain! I thank you for your input here...

Interesting.... I actually floated the idea of a similar service (or "renting" the AK90). I got zero positive response. :-( Maybe I should try again sometime.

QSilver,
That is a great post! Thank you! However, I disagree on one small point, although it is moot to the person asking questions about pairing the DME and EWS. The directions on the net...

The key allotment is really a little cryptic. A better statement is that the EWS can support up to 10 transponder chips. If you have a device such as an AK90, then you can reuse transponders spots...
