The TY97 aviation radio define a new standard in dual 25 kHz and 8.33 kHz radio design. Combining great quality and performance each radio is housed within a superbly engineered unit, slimline and light. At only 33 mm high the radio saves valuable stack space, but retains innovative and practical features. These radios are perfectly suited to the needs of experienced and novice pilots alike.
Features that matter
The TY97 is a more powerful 16 Watt model, where a higher transmission output is required.
The display is clear and bright, showing both primary and secondary frequencies along with ICAO or custom set airfield identifiers. A ‘Push Step’ knob allows the fastest change from 8.33 kHz to 25 kHz - 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.
The 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, along with mic and volume levels. This ensures a successful transmission in what can be a stressful situation.
The radio has a built in two place intercom with auxiliary inputs for stereo music and audio warnings. The 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. The radio is designed to easily replace legacy radios, these include popular KY 196A, KY 197A and SL 40 models.
