King's KT-76C is a current production digital transponder, and a thorough update of the popular KT-76A. The real benefit of this newer technology is simple operation. For example, with its sequential pushbutton code entry, entering a new squawk code is as easy as dialing a telephone. Entering the VFR code (1200) is even simpler, thanks to a dedicated VFR button. The bright microprocessor-controlled gas plasma display shows both your current code and the altitude your encoder is sending to ATC. Maybe best of all, if you already own a KT-76A transponder, the KT-76C is a direct slide-in replacement! The KT-76C features:
- 4096 discrete codes
- Mode C compatibility
- 200 watts transmission power (may be used up to 35,000 feet)
- Modernized Silver Crown Plus styling, like the KX-155A and KX-165A
- Backlight labels and knobs
- System test capability
