Lee - read my post again, please. I clearly state that I am interested in the FIS-B element - TAFs/METARs - and I even state an opinion on the usefulness (or lack of) of the Weather RADAR function. Why would I be bothered about receiving FLARM from a ground station when my chosen device receives FLARM via DIRECT
another well known brand?
I am also interested in the active NOTAM portion of the FIS-B trial. You know, for those sort of TDAs that get set up when someone clips a ship’s mast and then has to punch out and get picked up by a SAR Helicopter. Who knows, that SAR capability may be un-crewed in the future too, and react faster than the 5-10 mins it takes a crew to react. When you are bobbing around in the ogg-splosh then every minute counts against hypothermia. Another good use for a large uncrewed air system, I would offer, if this DAA technology can be demonstrated to be safe.
 PS. thanks Cub, for setting my record straight on having no involvement in this whatsoever
