First avionics upgrade is complete!

 The little Cherokee finally has had it's first panel upgrade in almost 25 years!

I have had a KLX-135 and KX-155 since I purchased the plane but had always had issues hearing over the radio or intermittent transmit issues.

I finally decided to bite the bullet and pull both my radios, audio panel and broken intercom and replace them with a single ICOM A220 radio.

I could not be happier with the outcome.  I can finally hear crystal clear on the radio and the display is nice and bright and easy to see in direct sun.

I replaced ALL the wires including the headphone/headset jacks to make 100% sure we had all new wiring and no chance of crummy connections.

I've also been able to relocated my iFly 740 GPS to the center of the panel now which creates a more uniform and less cluttered look which I really enjoy.
