youngmic Posted September 29, 2008 Share Posted September 29, 2008 Hi All, I have recently had my old Collins 251 VHF's expire, both inside a week. So time to upgrade, unfortunately I don't have the panel space for a flat type (icom A 200) so I am looking at filling the existing space from the Collins with one of the following: Xcom, Microair, Becker, or Flightline. The aircraft in question is a composite construction Vari-eze and has all the associated issues of radios in composite airframes. Zulu's and Altronics headsets will be used and either PTT intercom or true adjustable VOX capability is preffered. I have heard one unit claims VOX but is open mike all the time? I have been advised to steer clear of the Xcom from a tech but must admit it was/is my first choice at this stage. Any advice on the following would be greatly received: Company after sales support and what they are like to deal with, warranty issues and effectiveness, unit performance, clarity, range etc. Reliability and parts back up. If anyone has a servicable Collins 251 for sale I could be interested. Please feel free to PM me if you wish to maintain anonymity.
