XCOM Radio Features

The XCOM VHF Transceiver is one of several innovative avionics products released by XCOM Avionics. Based on a similar format to the very successful Microair and Becker radios, the XCOM VHF Transceiver offers many advanced features and build quality previously only available in the more expensive panel-mount brands.

Designed from the ground up for Sport Aircraft and General Aviation aircraft, the XCOM offers superior performance under the demanding and noisy conditions experienced in many amateur built and light aircraft. With low power consumption, this radio is ideally suited for use in gliders, homebuilts and ultralight aircraft and even aircraft with no electrical system where heavy power consumption may be a problem.

Transmitting a full 6-Watt carrier and >18 Watt PEP output ensure that you will be heard above the general chatter in busy airspace and the full VOX intercom with music input will enhance your enjoyment of the flight. With expanded receive range up to 163 MHz, the XCOM receives NOAA Weather ensuring that you are always aware of impending weather conditions ahead.

Additional safety enhancements such as dual watch allows the pilot to listen to the standby frequency while still monitoring the primary frequency. The XCOM also has 99 memory channels, large volume and channel selector knobs and well spaced buttons. This radio is extremely easy to operate even when wearing flight gloves and you can even check the condition of your battery with the built-in voltage monitor.

Manufactured in the USA, serviced and repaired in the USA, Australia and Europe the XCOM offers superior quality, enhanced features and improved performance over many of the more expensive airband radios including traditional sized panel mount radios.

Features, value for money, reliability and performance have quickly established the XCOM as the standard radio for light sport aircraft use and are offered by many manufacturers as standard equipment in their aircraft.
