Walter Dittel is a highly respected manufacturer of small, high quality, low current drain aviation radios and accessories.
The new FSG2T has a standby current draw of only 50 mA!  Perfect for use in sailplanes.  20 channel memory.

The newly developed FSG2T VHF airband transceiver with 25 kHz channel spacing and 20 memory channels out of 760 channels meets the most modern requirements in the transceiver’s category.

Operating from 9 to 16 Volts with very low power consumption means real long battery endurance. The separate and individually adjustable microphone inputs together with the built-in voice operated intercom provide the best speech characteristic you can expect.

F10350 FSG 2T - Avionics Transceiver
5 Watt, 760 Channel, 25 kHz channel spacing, 20 channel memory, mounts in 2 1/4" (57mm) instrument panel hole. Mounting screws included.
This is a very, very nice radio.  You never hear of anyone complain about their Dittel radio.  The display features very large digits which make it easy to read.  The user interface is extremely simple.  Just rotate the large knob to select one of the 20 preset channels, or press the "F/CH" button to dial in any frequency. Press the large knob to move the underline between MHz and kHz.  Rotate the know to adjust the underlined number.  The "STO" button is used to store a frequency to one of the 20 preset channels.  It couldn't be any easier.  I also like how the display can show the battery voltage.
I very highly recommend purchasing all the options listed below.  The wiring harness is necessary for connecting all the wires to the radio.  The speaker box also acts as a wire junction box and makes it possible to connect all accessories without any soldering or even using a screwdriver.

Options

  • F10028 - Wiring harness
  • F10061 - Speaker box and wire junction box
  • F10039 - Gooseneck microphone
  • F10050 - Push-to-talk button with wires

F10028 Wiring Harness Assembly
3.2m (10.5 ft), with DB-15 connector and numbered flat connectors.  For use in single and double seat gliders. I highly recommend the use of this wiring harness. The wires with connectors are to be plugged into the F10061 - Speaker box and wire junction box.  When used with the speaker / junction box the installation is extremely easy.  The wires all have connectors on them and are all labeled, making it easy to connect the wiring harness to the junction box without any tools.  The wiring harness not only makes installation very easy, it also makes long term maintenance much easier.  Also, since you don't have to do any soldering, there is no chance to mis-wire anything - which could damage your new and expensive radio.

DB-15f-Posts DB-15f Connector with Posts
This is a female connector for use with the FSG 2T radio.  The DB-15m connector on the back of the radio has a special slide-lock mechanism.  This mating connector has 2 posts that work with the slide-lock mechanism.  The kit includes:
  • DB-15f connector with solder cups
  • Metalized Plastic Backshell
  • 2 locking posts with 2 nuts and 6 lock washers

Note: Although this option is much less expensive than the wiring harness assembly above.  I highly recommend buying the F10028 wiring harness listed above for the reasons listed in its description.

F10039 Dynamic Gooseneck Microphone
Length of gooseneck from base to end of microphone: 370 mm (14.5"), Cable length: 3 m (10 ft), 5-pole DIN connector, great for use in gliders. DIN connector plugs directly into the F10061 - Speaker box and wire junction box.  I've seen a lot of pilots get by without a gooseneck microphone.  Once they upgrade to a gooseneck microphone with a push-to-talk button mounted on the stick, they never go back.  The reason is that you don't have to hunt for and fumble with a handheld microphone.  You simply press the button and start talking.  The simplicity improves safety because you spend less time with your head looking about the cockpit.

H00217 Battery Box
This is an extremely rugged and handy battery box.  This box offers stainless steel construction, a very useful battery voltage level indicator and a circuit breaker for battery protection. A mounting plate is included. It is easy to remove the battery box from the mounting plate - so you can quickly remove the battery from the aircraft for charging. It is somewhat expensive, but worth the price. It is designed to hold a 7 to 9 Ah battery like the Power-Sonic PS-1290 or Bioenno Power BLF-1209. It iIncludes a battery indicator which allows a quick check of the battery status at the press of a button.  One LED on indicates 11V, each additional LED indicates 1 additional volt.
Maximum Battery Dimension: Length: 6", Width, 2.5", Height: 4"
Connector: 3-pin DIN connector with locking ring,  The battery box comes with a single connector which is generally used to connect to the glider electrical system.  I recommend a 2nd DIN-3m connector for connecting to a battery charger.

Note: Battery not included.
