Becker AR-3201 radio owners: check your batteries by sssarah
Hi group, Just a note to remind owners of older Becker AR3201 radios to check your internal nicad button cell batteries. These tend to leak after a few years, and if left too long will destroy your PC board ending the useful life of a pretty good radio! I found this green-crystal crud beginning...

Dittel ATR720B Manual by Cats
Hi I'm looking for a scan of a manual for a Dittel 720B radio. I can find manuals online for the A & C versions which are considerably different, and the few previous enquiries seem to have hit dead ends - but someone, somewhere must have one! I'm in the UK.

Soaring apps for iPhone by kirk.stant
Just got one of these Apple gizmos and I'm curious what apps other glider guiders are using. So far I've found some nice non-aviation weather and mapping apps, so now I'm looking for a good NOTAM and aviation wx brief app. How about SPOT, XCskies, DrJack? Kirk 66

Flarm in the US by Steve Freeman
Curious about the use of Flarm in the US. Was told by another pilot that the frequency used by Flarm is not approved for that category of use in the US. Is that true? If it is, do they make units that use a US approved frequency?
