|Comments:||Most RT-459A transponders are equipped with a black faceplate. The picture shows that while the tan RT-459A is rare, it is sometimes available.|
|Comments:||We do not normally sell this item internationally. We would be happy to send one to you, but please be advised that you are responsible for shipping in both directions in the event of any warranty claim.|
As the RT-459A has gotten older, it has not aged gracefully. We no longer recommend the RT-459A for a new Transponder installation.
The ARC (Cessna) 400 Series RT-459A Transponder is a direct replacement for the common RT-359A. The RT-459A takes the basic RT-359A chassis and adds more power and convenience. The additional power allows this transponder to be used to 30,000 feet. The tuning levers are a bit unusual, but they work very quickly once you get accustomed to them.
Some of our RT-459A transponders, like the one shown here, have ARC's tan faceplate. Please check availability, as we may have units with black faceplates as well.
If you need a black faceplate to match the rest of your radio stack, and we are currently sold out of black, we can change a tan faceplate to a refurbished black one for $75 extra. Our refurbished faceplates look great.
The RT-459A is compatible with encoders (either an encoding altimeter or a blind encoder).
The RT-459A features:
- 200 watts transmission power
- Mode C compatibility
- TSO'd to 30,000 feet
- Reply light dimmer
- Self test function
- Provision for remote ident switch
