Becker AR3201 Squelch by [email protected]
I'm having similar squelch issues as the Dittel post with my Becker AR3201. Which direction do you adjust the squelch to reduce noise? Manual shows where the adjustment is located but does not explain adjustments. Gary C.

Just What You Would Expect by Dan Marotta
After a week of flat skies here in NM, I handed my Stemme over for its annual inspection. So when I looked out the window this morning, what did I see? Why standing lenticular clouds, of course! Oh well... There will be more wave days before spring. -- Dan, 5J

There was a recent thread about inexpensive two seat gliders. I made me wonder how crazy I might be. I'd like to buy a two seat glider that could be used for beginner to intermediate-ish aerobatics. Fun for me, perhaps someone might want to do some aerobatics for a flight review instead of an hour...
