    Radio / transponder recommendations

    I have the old Narco 720 com and correspondingly ancient transponder. I have been told I am probably going to have to get new kit to be compliant in Australia. Anyway got any recommendations?

    The new Garmin GTR 200 sure is a nice radio. Not sure if yours has to be PMA or not. I wrote a review here:http://www.supercub.org/forum/showth...lled-Thumbs-up!

    I bought a Sandia STX 165 on the last day of Oshkosh and saved a good chunk of money. It's the least expensive of the small transponders, and weighs just a few ounces more than the Trig. This post from the Sandia sales guy might help you find an even better discount than I got. I haven't had time to rework my panel this winter, so no field report yet.

    Ditto on the MicroAir. Had mine five years now and no problems so far.

    I have a microair T2000 and worked fine unless used in new mode-s environs - when it locked up incessantly. I just had the insides replaced now it's basically brand new and it works well now under Denver class bravo.

    if you want a Microair I'll sell mine - pm me if interested.

    I have a guy from meadow lak fly up and work in my xponder. He's real reasonable. He did the original installation like 11 or 12 years ago of my microair. I'd give him a call. Google dan fisher of mobile transponder services and you'll find his contact info. Good guy. I don't think if was expensive. Convenient he flys to you.

    Ruffair, +1 on what soy said re: DAN the TRANsponder MAN. AOG at KFTG used to be very good too, but it changed hands a while back; haven't heard negative, but nothing current. Freedom Avionics at Jeffco is very good, and they know how to FIX stuff, even old Narco radios, not just install new. Let us know how things turn out. soy, glad you got your Microaire back from its holiday back in old Oz. I hope it behaves itself for awhile.

    Thanks. cubscout
