KX-155 NAV/COMM, 28 Volts
It took a very good radio to replace the King KX-170B NAV/COMM as an industry standard. That radio is the King KX-155. It took the KX-170B's reputation for reliability, and added a number of features made possible by modern electronics.
This radio has King's easy-to-read, bright gas-discharge display. This display shows simultaneous active and standby frequencies for both the NAV and COMM sides. The KX-155 NAV/COMM tunes in 200 NAV channels and 720 COMM channels (a 760 channel version is also available for $200 extra).
This version does not include a Glideslope Receiver.
The King KX-155 also features:
- Solid state design
- 10 watts transmit power
- Push button frequency flip-flop
The KX-155 may be used with these King indicators that contain an internal VOR/LOC Converter:
- KI-203 VOR/LOC Indicator
- KI-208 VOR/LOC Indicator
- KI-208A GPS/VOR/LOC Indicator
We are often asked about adding Glideslope capability to a KX-155. Unfortunately, the KX-155 will not work with any external Glideslope Receivers because it does not output Glideslope channeling. Without this information, the Glideslope Receiver would not know which of the Glideslope frequencies to tune.
If you want Glideslope with a KX-155, you must use one with the Glideslope board installed. We generally recommend an exchange in this situation.
