> Any comments on the following:
> King KY-196 or KY-196A  (24 volt version, similar to KY197 14 volt
> This is the higher power (and priced radio), not the KY 96/KY 97.
> Looking at a used unit ($750.00).
> I also like the Apollo SL40 comm. This unit works in either 14 or 24 volt.
> New price is about $1295 however.
> For transponder, I like the Garmin GTX 320A ($1149).
> It is all solid state and works on 14 or 28 volt.  Same size and price
> as the trusty King KT76A and Narco AT150 but has no cavity tube.
> Thanks, Herman
