    Blade 912/582 climbing problem

    Steve - Quite right, it's your old a/c with a 582 blue top. I'm assuming that the only difference between the 912 & 582 blades are the engine mounts and associated equipment. The only changes I've...

  17. Radio readability falls off when engine is running - SOLVED!

    Peter - this is the puzzling thing, why setting the dip switches to "very high microphone gain" as opposed to their default setting of "low headset microphone gain" solved the problem, not only on my...
  18. Radio readability falls off when engine is running - SOLVED!

    John - yup, default setting for the 2 dip switches is both "on - low headset microphone gain" as per the manual. It was another pilot who was having a similar problem with the same setup as mine who...
  19. Radio readability falls off when engine is running - SOLVED!

    John, I'm getting a bit confused - the original situation was, with both dip switches "on", i.e. "low microphone gain", intercom and transmissions to the tower with the engine off, were "OK" and...

    All, It looks like it'll be some time before I can get...
  24. Radio readability falls off when engine is running - SOLVED!

    Dave, that was just in case someone wondered what the "loose" lead was : yes, it's connected when the problem occurs and no, not using the ptt on the radio.
  25. Radio readability falls off when engine is running - SOLVED!

    Cheers John, it may be a few days before the weather allows me to get to Perth and get my a/c out to try your (and other) suggestions.
