What? Why? Dang! It’s a great, lightweight, affordable little radio with built in VoX intercom and I discovered today they’ve been discontinued. I bought one new five years ago for $750 from Spruce.  I was at 1,000 agl yesterday chatting with another aircraft in the pattern of an airport 85 miles away.  All I can say is I’m glad I bought mine when I did and I feel for anyone looking for one for their new build. They are perfect for a two-place experimental aircraft.  Closest thing Spruce offers now is the Becker and it’s priced at $1,200.

Mines been perfect for 6 years. No complaints.

The MGL remote unit with the head is the next best price at $995 and it also includes a two place intercom. 

Yes. Mgl v16 with vega head. Sunlight readable. Absolutely awesome. Nuf said

Love my FL760.  10 years of trouble free service.

Hi Jim,

An ex Air Canada 767 Captain recommended 760 radio to me a couple weeks ago. Your note explains why I was not finding it. Purchased a Yaseu 850L handheld to get me through the mandatory 25 hour period here in Canada. The air park I fly from is Nordo, but the Fraser Valley is littered with towered airports including Vancouver International on the west end. 


Just buy a garmin gtr 200 com radio with built in intercom. Around $1200
