Trig TY96A VHF Panel Mounted Radio – Features that matter
Trig TY96A VHF Panel Mounted Radio defines a new standard in communication design and it is packed with pilot-friendly features. It is suited for most general aviation use. Trig also offers a more powerful TY97A 16 Watt model, where a higher transmission output is required. Both radios can be used on a 28 Volt system, however, the TY97A is designed for a 28 Volt supply in order to provide a 16 Watt output.
TY96A’s display is clear and bright, showing both primary and secondary frequencies along with ICAO or a custom set of airfield identifiers. A ‘Push Step’ knob allows the fastest change from 50 kHz to 25 kHz steps – so you can tune the radio quickly without compromising your look-out. The Dual Watch feature allows two frequencies to be monitored at the same time – it’s like having two radios in one.
This radio has a ‘Say Again’ feature. A single button press replays the last radio transmission. It’s ideal for student pilots, but every pilot can get distracted, so it avoids the embarrassment of asking air traffic to repeat a message. A one-touch Emergency Button automatically sets 121.5 MHz frequency, along with mic and volume levels. This ensures a successful transmission in what can be a stressful situation.
This radio has a built-in two-place intercom with auxiliary inputs for stereo music and audio warnings. This radio can also integrate with a GPS (SL40 protocol) to automatically display frequencies as they are required along the flight route. Finally, an airfield database can be loaded via the handy USB port. This database can contain over 200 of your preferred frequencies and identifiers.
Ease of installation
The radio’s low profile design requires no external cooling fans. The radio’s compact size and features make it a great choice for both forward and retro-fit installations. This radio is designed to easily replace legacy radios, these include popular; KY 196A, KY 197A, and SL 40 models.
