VHF radios and transponders
MGL V16 VHF radio and 2 place intercom
  • 10W CW TX power (unmodulated carrier)
  • Built in VSWR meter for antenna checks, tuning and transmitter protection
  • 25Khz and 8.33Khz fully compliant receiver and transmitter
  • Offset carrier support for all classes
  • Automatic store and recall of last received transmissions (up to 1 minute total)
  • Two place digital intercom with advanced VOX
  • 12/14V to 24/28VDC operation, lowest power consumption in class

The V16 VHF airband transceiver is a split module design. This allows great flexibility of use.
Connect to an MGL iEFIS and use the EFIS as control head for a low cost, minimum panel space design.
Or fit a Razor 3.1/8 inch touch screen control head or a Vega 2.25 inch control head.
Or fit any combination of these if you would like to control your radio from different stations.
The V16 is built around a newly developed high performance direct conversion receiver architecture.

SP12 ADS-B TABS certified GPS
14 CFR ยง91.227c, AC 20-165B, Appendix B compliant GPS receiver
(TSO-C199 TABS GPS qualified for SIL 3 and SDA 2)
The SP-12 is based on the Aspen Avionics NexNav Micro-i GPS module.
It provides a simple and low cost potential solution to the CAA 2021 mandate (tbc).
It provides the standard Micro-i NMEA output on RS232 but adds user selectable baudrates
(the default is the standard 115200 baud used by the Micro-i module).
In addition it packs the NMEA data from the Micro-i onto the CAN bus for direct use by an MGL EFIS or compatible transponder without the need for further wiring.

Confirmed compatible tranponders.
This list will be updated as experience is gained with more installations:
