    I think that is the best idea. I have had two Stinsons, and have logged enough 180 time that the local flying club made me the primary 180 instructor.

    Web is correct, of course. The radio itself has an inadequate squelch range. It would have cost nothing for Garmin to use the SL-40 squelch circuitry.

    Did I mention that the GTR-200B is TSO if used in conjunction with a G-750 or something? Only difference - 200B has Bluetooth.
