Dittel FSG71 Radio / Squelch Questions by Bastoune

Laister LP-49 TE and polar info by Jim Meade

LXNAV Experience by Del Jensen
One week ago today I sent in a variometer to get a pressure sensor repaired. Today got notification of delivery two days from now. Soaring season saved. You can't beat that kind of service. Uros and his crew are stand up guys. No, I don't own stock in LXNAV, nor does any relation of mine work...
