The KX165A-02 is a slide in 8.33 kHz replacement for the KX155A or KX165A-01 (25 kHz older version)

With a new feature set, new appearance and new functions, the Bendix/King Silver Crown Plus KX 165A-02 Nav/Comm still share a rich tradition of performance, value and reliability with their predecessors, the KX 155A and KX 165A-01. Completely redesigned, the KX 165A-02 updates the concept of the combined navigation and communications radio for the 21st Century. With such features as programmable Comm channels, support for 8.33kHz Comm tuning, GPS Quick-Tune, a series of different operation modes, remote channel increment with flip-flop tuning ,and a built-in timer.

In addition to its standard use, offering both active and standby navigation and communications frequencies, the KX165A -02 incorporates a number of new control features. These include the provision to program up to 32 Comm channels, enabling you to store and readily recall the frequencies you use on a regular basis. Pre-selected frequencies are stored in a non-volatile memory circuit, eliminating the need for backup battery power. When interfaced to the KLN 94 GPS, both the standby Comm and Nav frequencies can be selected and remotely tuned from the GPS database, reducing pilot workload.

The units' remote channel increment capability (with flip-flop tuning) allows you to change channels without taking your hands off the yoke;a feature of special interest to helicopter operators. The stuck microphone alert is a safety enhancement as well as a convenience for you and the people you communicate with; in addition to notifying you of a problem, the KX 165A's Comm transmitter will automatically shut down if the microphone is keyed continuously for more than 33 seconds.

Other new features include a bearing-to-station mode and a radial-from-station mode. An internal Course Deviation Indicator (CDI) has been included for those times when an external CDI is being driven by your GPS receiver, and the systems now include a handy elapsed-time and approach timer. The KX 165A-02 features a built-in VOR/LOC converter, enabling it to directly drive a horizontal situation indicator (HSI). The timer function provides you with a "stopwatch", ideal for timing a holding pattern, a non-precision approach or an individual trip leg. The timer can be programmed to count either upwards or downwards.

Matching our other Silver Crown Plus avionics, the KX 165A-02 feature a new faceplate for a more contemporary look. More than just a styling update, this change helps improve ergonomics and makes these capable systems easier to operate. For example, backlighting of the bezel nomenclature and knobs is now standard, speeding recognition and making night flying even easier. We also improved the control knobs and buttons, providing a sturdier feeling and a greater sense of precision, for a difference you'll both notice and appreciate. Too, both units' displays double the amount of available presentation space, from one line of text information to two. Incorporating our proven large, self-dimming gas discharge displays, the units' readouts give you access to all 200 Nav and 2,280 Comm channels, along with 40-channel glideslope.

Like our other panel-mounted avionics, the KX 165A-02 is backed by our comprehensive two-year "no-hassle" warranty. And wherever you fly, you'll never be far from one of our 800 authorized service centers worldwide - the most extensive and responsive support network in general aviation. Combining improved ergonomics, enhanced performance, a host of usable new features and legendary Bendix/King reliability, the Silver Crown Plus KX 165A offers the value and capability you expect from the leader in panel-mounted avionics.
