Radio update...... 09/09/2011

As most of you will know we have been working on 779's V/UHF Radios for sometime now rolleyes

We have been going up week after week trying all sorts and its been a real headache but Thanks to Ron and Ken at
http://boscombedownaviationcollection.co.uk/

We now seem to be making progress and we are now hoping the next time we visit 779 we will have the V/UHF Radios working cool

Photos below show a test I did yesterday with the Pilots Control Panel, Ron has lent me a connector that is wired such that if you connect it to 28v it will light the panel lights, turn on the frequency indicators and allow you to select different frequencies. It is NOT a full test because it does not check that the correct codes are being sent out. It will at least prove that the Control Panel is at least partially working.

The frequency indicators have Not been lighting up in the aircraft so when I did this test I was very happy to see it light up smiley Ron and Ken have discussed the problem and our Junction Box is mod state 0 not even mod state 1 let alone 2, it couldn’t even have been used with the previous generation of radios. The good news is Ken has been digging around in there store and discovered that they have a mod state 2 Junction Box that they will swap for our mod state 0 box, which at least should solve that problem.
