The Mode C veil is not going to go away. Instead, in 2020 you will have an additional requirement of either a Mode-S transponder with extended squitter and GPS position reporting encoded into the extended squitter (known as 1090-ES) to replace your Mode-C transponder, or you can have ADS-B Out

I'm planning on getting a Dynon D6 EFIS, which is currently $1600. This replaces all the primary instruments and several others as well, and its altimeter is encoding. I'm waiting on that because the price will only go down (unless Dynon introduces a new model -- then it will REALLY go down).

I agree with everyone that said wait until you are about 2 days away from your install date. Regs and equipment capability are changing all the time. But I had a need to check the transponder and encoder output in my old airplane where I had an intermittent issue that the shops could not

This is just going to be a simple, VFR plane. The only reason I'm having a transponder at all is that in NYC I live under probably the largest Class B in the country (the three major NYC-area airports overlap one another) and it's almost impossible to avoid the mode-C veil, so I either have to

Avionics shops do this on the bench, and often have cheap salvaged parts to repair/refresh. As with most transmitters, dont operate it without a load (antenna). Peter but howwould you actually test a transponder (or any used instrument, really),without having a flying airplane to put it
