New Comm Radio Fits In 2.25-Inch Cutout

Radio And Four-Place Stereo Intercom From MGL

A new comm radio from MGL is targeted directly at the sport and experimental aircraft market, and boasts a variety of popular features in a small package.

The V6 fits in a small 2 1/4" round standard instrument hole and has many of the same great features of its older brother the V10, including built-in VOGAD intercom, remote control and low power consumption. But unlike its older brother, the V6 has a smaller cutout size, is stereo, and has standard volume and frequency selection knobs.

The V6 features a stereo intercom that allows you to listen to stereo music if you connect a music player to the aux audio input (requires stereo headsets). Music automatically mutes down on receive/transmit. There are also 2 mono audio inputs for EFIS alarm annunciator and phone connection. Frequency and volume selection is via standard multifunction knobs. Frequency knob is intelligent and will tune in 50 khz steps when you rotate it quickly and in 25 khz steps when you slow down.

The V6 has 4 individual microphone channels for independent level/VOGAD settings for each mic in a 4-place aircraft. It allows you to 'turn down' the radio volume while keeping the intercom volume high, for use in busy radio environments, and if you're flying a 4-place aircraft, and want to let your 3 passengers (or your 2 backseat passengers) talk amongst themselves while you do the hard work up front, you can select one of the V6 isolate modes.

The unit has the same powerful 6W transmitter and modulation system as the V10. Designed for 25 Khz spacing with 8.33 KHz compatible operation selectable, the dual scan receiver boasts the fastest scanning time which means no loss of reception quality during receive of the standby channel. Its 100 channel storage and channel operating mode are compatible with the V10.

The unit retails for $1,095, according to the MGL website. Headsets are also available.
