With such features as programmable comm channels, support for 8.33 kHz comm tuning (KX 165A only), GPS QuickTune, multiple operating modes, remote channel increment with flip-flop tuning and a built-in timer, the KX 155A and KX 165A match a sophisticated appearance with advanced capabilities.

The KX 155A and the KX 165A incorporate a number of valuable control features:

  • Program up to 32 comm channels in a non-volatile memory circuit for ready recall of the frequencies you used on a regular basis - no backup battery required.
  • Pre-selected frequencies are stored in a non-volatile memory circuit, eliminating the need for backup battery power.
  • When interfaced to the KLN 94 GPS, both the standby comm and nav frequencies can be selected and remotely tuned from the GPS database, reducing pilot workload.
