The solid-state King KT-79 Transponder is compact and powerful. This flat-pack transponder matches the rest of your Silver Crown radio stack. The bright gas-discharge digital display shows both your current code and the altitude your encoder is sending to ATC.
The KT-79 does not use a power cavity. As a result, reliability is improved, and no warm-up time is needed before operation.
Please note that some parts are no longer available, making the KT-79 a more-risky choice for future service. We would only recommend the KT-79 if you need to replace one, and do not want to install a different Transponder.
The KT-79 features:
- Push button selection of VFR code (1200)
- 250 watts of power
- Mode C compatibility
- System self-test function
