Stratus ADS-B Receivers
UPDATE 10th May, 2018:
THIS IS NOT A RADIO!!!
Unlock 136 MHz on your presently limited 720 [135 MHz] Comm Channels the simplest way!
That's right! Ed King planned ahead!!!
Your KX 170/175B's all have this feature already incorporated at manufacture!!!
"Beez" only, 170/170A's, throw in garbage [I'll give you $5.00 for it, not a cent more].
This extremely simplified Guide will show/teach you how to do-it-yourself by just removal of the top cover [4 screws] & installing a simple switch wherever you like!
This is merely the same as implementing Mod. 10 status manually without disassembling the selector wafers [K.I.S.S. Principle].
Never be forced off to another ATC just because of change.
Wire for routing [about 1 foot 22 or 24 gauge, stranded preferred; if placing switch on front panel]
1 DPST or DPDT ON/OFF switch [w/ latch, not momentary] of your preference
[mini toggle, slider, latching push-button with "indicator light"<---highly recommended].
For doing the actual work:
Soldering Iron+Solder Wire [flux]
Tools+Hardware for mounting switch [hide it somewhere in your avionics panel, will require more wire]
Man-Hours required: 0.2 to 1max
You will be contributing to R&D in actuality.
--->"Automatic" version also available but will require more complex items and labour***.<---
No need to buy a whole new radio just for that extra Mhz [+40 more channels]!
Just because parts are NLA?
Special Thanx to those who supported!
If you know anyone capable of stamping a piece of ~1cmx1cm sheet-steel as in last pic., contact please!!! We'll just make those switches "Great Again!!!" ourselves!!! Not just the radio ;~)
E-Mail: make sure you include it at checkout!
