I've just bought an 8.33 KHz COM for my Luscombe project. Bob Lilliard, the 833 Project Officer at CAA Gatwick has been nothing less than incredibly helpful. He told me last week that they are currently processing Tranche 2 claims, that mine fell within Tranche 3 but funding was not deemed to be an issue and would be addressed in Jan18.

Just submitted mine too for BVGW having bought a landscape TQ (Dittel) KRT-2. Bob came back within minutes and confirmed the submission had been successful (as in, submitted correctly).
Shame the matching Transponder is twice the price with no possibility of a rebate...
I see iCom are doing a 'scrappage scheme', albeit only amounting to £50...
