How do you place a locator beacon that you purchase with a drop pod? The only rules for the beacon are found with the scout bikes. Am I missing something here?

Seems logical to just center the Beacon on the (landed) Pod.

That's what I do anyway.

Ah so that makes sense. I was thinking it was place before the drop pod or something instead of it being on the pod itself.

It's built into the pod. measure from the edge of the hull to determine area of effect.

Good reason to take drop pods over scout bikers

True. My droppod army is much more effective now than in the previous edition. Back then I'd also throw a homing beacon on a scout sergeant and infiltrate them up close, then DS some termies in. Ahh, those were the days.
