'61 182D Avionics Question

<HTML>Hello All,
     I was curious if a cessna radio RT385(digital and 720channel)  would fit in the same tray as a 300 series radio,(analog and only 360 channel).  We have a 152 that I wanted to pull the 385 out of and stick it in the 182
tray to replace the 300.  The 152 is 24volt system and the 182 is 12volt.
     This is only a temporary setup(if it will even work). In the process of aquiring
$$ for a new King or Narco to replace the Cessna radio
                                                     Thanks Again, Dave
P.S. Charging system still working great smile</HTML>

Re: '61 182D Avionics Question

<HTML>In a word, no.  At least not without lots of modification.  Keep in mind when trying to save $$ that the hourly rate the shop charges to work on your older radios is the same as that for newer stuff.  It quckly gets unwise to pour money into older stuff that isn't a long term solution to the problem.  While many 28-volt radios actually have working voltages of 14-volts,...they usually accomplish this by either utilizing an external power converter (mounted on the radio shelf somewhere, hidden away like your altimeter's "blind" encoder) or by getting it's power through a different pin on the connector located on the tray.  So, a 28 volt aircraft's radio tray MAY be wired up with 14 volts, and accept the kind of swap you're considering,  but a genuine 28 volt radio such at the RT-385 will only accept 28 volt power.  So you'll either need to also purchase a 28 volt power supply whose installation and purchase price can approach the price of newer equipment, or you can just go ahead and whip out the credit-card and buy some newer equipment.  I suggest if you want to retain the existing tray/harness set up in your 182, that you buy a Narco 12D Cessna Replacement, which is an exact, slide-in replacement. Airwich Avionics is an advertiser in COO and can probably help you out, whichever solution you choose.  http://www.airwich.com</HTML>
