With the anticipation of additional frequency allocations, Bendix/ King has designed the KY 96Aand KY97A to operate on 760 frequencies from 118.00 MHz to 136.975 MHz. You can switch between active and standby frequencies. Simply tune the desired frequency into the standby window ("STBY") while monitoring the "USE" channel-when the time is right, simply push the frequency transfer button to transfer the standby frequency into the active window.
A remote switch may be installed as an additional means of providing the "flip-flop" function. Up to nine channels can be easily programmed by the pilot into the memory of the KY -96A or KY97A. The KY96A & KY97A remember displayed frequencies and stored frequencies without batteries or external hookup during power shutdown or in the event of a power interruption and have an easy-to-read, illuminated LCD display.
No, the KY-96A is not a slide in replacement for the KY-196A.
