    identification ?

    Bought this for peanuts on EBay out of curiosity..

    There seems to be an electrical contact (arrow) under each of the 4 top flaps.
    Anyone knowing how it works?

    It certainly looks like a transponder from a boeing.

    Buy that from james-buffy by any chance?

    I can't open the photo on my iPhone, but if it's what I think it, it's an old trip encoder.

    Don't ever doubt the Skunk.. He always knows what he is talking about, and he can't even see the darn thing..

    Clairvoyant? LOL

    Jack, indeed I won't buy from him either! Just saw one he listed a couple of months back.

    And Mike knows his stuff when it comes to things like this.

    Thanks for your confidence folks.

    Yes it is a trip encoder/reminder. When used or ordered, it was usually installed above the WX radar on the 727.

    I do not know if it was for a rudementary ACARS system or the flight data recorder, or if it was even interconnected to these systems at all. It may have just been a convenience for the crew so they didn't forget their trip number while using the radios.
