21437Re: Light-Sport Aircraft Yahoo group Using Amateur Radio In Flight
- Jun 1, 2014I 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.
