Flightline 760 Radio by Tony[_5_]
Is anyone out there using these radios? Thanks to limited archive searchability all I was able to find was a post a while back from Tim Mara saying that he had sold about 50 of them. I'm curious what the real world power drain is on them from a 12V sealed lead acid battery. Spec is a bit high at...

Feeding Two Devices from PowerFLARM by [email protected]
Yeah, I know this has been discussed. I've researched it. But I can't find this specific question answered. I want to connect my PowerFLARM Portable to my LX FLARMView AND to my Kobo running TopHat. I don't think I need or can use a K6 Mux box: I'm not combining multiple inputs into a common...

Dittel FSG71 Radio / Squelch Questions by Bastoune
All, My radio (Dittel FSG 71) Squelch seems to be a bit sensitive (but by design, cannot be adjusted by the pilot). In my case, when flying, the squelch is a bit sensitive and the “white noise” of the radio comes on at times, even when there are no communications received. I can always reset the...
