Europe went to a smaller freq spacing a few years ago....thus, many EU radios are "junk" since they can't handle the freq spacing.
For at least the US, they are perfectly fine and likely way better than older US radios....
Sooooo........newer radio that matches US/FCC rules but not EU rules.

At least, my understanding. Research before buying, but I believe I am correct.

The digital encoder on the FSG2T doesn't work well if dirty, like digital encoders on other equipment. It's easy to clean. I recommend the same stuff as in the CAI303 thread:
https://caig.com/product/deoxit-d5s-6/
Remove the radio, remove the dual concentric knobs, undo 4 screws, remove the face, squirt, replace everything.
Besides being easier to set up microphones and having variable squelch, the FSG2T deals with noise from USB stuff much better than the FSG71M.
Perhaps the 71M predated USB stuff in the cockpit?

If you have an FSG-71, it is a direct replacement and is a much better radio.



I replaced my 71 with a 2T from Ross and the fidelity was much better.

As Roy says, the channel selector switch can be a weak point though. I understand it is more susceptible to external mechanical impacts.
