Hi: Reading about this panel with interest as it appears that this one panel can replace the usual two stand alone comm 1/2 panels.

The blurb on the product states the radio has dual channel (comm1 and comm 2).

This maybe an obvious question, but how do you select from comm1 to comm 2 ? I gather you can program both comm 1/2 frequencies then select the frequency of choice?

Thanks, WilloW Question

Multi-Comm radios let you set the frequencies, transfer Standby to Active on VHF1. Press VHF2 and you can set the frequencies there as well. Back to VHF1 if you want.

You select either VHF1 or VHF2 via pushbutton, then you can turn the knobs to adjust standby frequency of either VHF and then you push the transfer switch to interchange standby and active frequency.

Is the module pure plug and play without detailed set up, or does it require a phidget card or similar to operate? I assume 5 volt power supply for IBL? Thanks Smile

Thanks Steve. I was lead to believe that a phidget card was required. Glad it is plug and play.

What is the current "wait time" if I make an order? Cheers

Pete can tell you for sure, if we have all the parts in stock it doesn't take too long.
