Default RE: 2.4 ghz radios??????????

Yes, the 3 letter naming is sort of old. But a guy at my field today took off and crashed a plane.....he was on the wrong airplane and his radio had full names.....

Airtronics took their RD8000 and made it into spread spectrum. Maybe not as ideal as starting from scratch, but they got a good product on the market fairly quick at a great price. One has to ask if paying a few hundred more for a few more niceties is really worth it. In the next year I think we will see new radios with more bells and whistles for less money, but what do I know
