  I am in the market for a new (ie, 760 channel) comm radio for my Eagle
II, as my old Narco Escort 110 is essentially illegal.  I am looking for
a comm only (I have a GPS) with a push-to-talk intercom built in as the
Escort has.  I am thinking that a VOX intercom wouldn't work well
because of the high ambient noise level in the cockpit.

I am looking at a VAL 360 or a Becker AR-4201, but can't seem to find
out if they are PTT or VOX.  Does anyone have any suggestions or
experience  to 
help me?  I am wide open to other brands also.

Fly safe
