      I took a hand held HAM radio up last year in my coupe with a friend who is a HAM fanatic. My plane isn't real quiet but is enclosed when you close the windows.  I have Lightspeed headsets into a Flightcom intercom.  We reached out 75 miles with the handheld but blew my fuses.  So check to see what your draw is.  If I remember correct, we reduced the output and it did fine.  Let me think about how I connected it but think it is was a simple connection into my existing intercom.

      We were going to look into another antennae connection to a VHF antennae and make it the correct length but haven't done that yet.
