    Intercoms

    Good morning,

    As we are tackling the interior in the next couple of weeks, we thought
    we would install a panel-mount intercom. I had had a portable one, that
    works fine, actually, very well, but there are a lot of wires around and
    it would be nice to clean that up.

    My requirements are:

    4 Place
    Music Input (not for music, but I have a handheld that I play through
    the intercom to pick-up the ATIS, etc.)
    Crew ISO switch would be nice, not needed

    Most of the other features such as recording, etc are of no interest to
    me


    Questions are:

    Where do you install the rear input jacks in the Musketeer so that they
    are out of the way (elbows, etc)
    What model would you recommend?

    I installed the PS Engineering PM1000II a few years ago. I like the separate volume and squelch for pilot and copilot. The auxilary input is a separately mounted jack. I ran the rear seat connections above the floor (to keep away from the control cables) on the copilot side of the trim wheel. I mounted the rear seat jacks in a small box velcroed to the rear of the trim wheel support box.

    Be prepared for a big soldering job. If you are not experienced with soldering small D-Shell connectors using a pencil iron and magnifier you may need some help. If you are experienced, expect a day or so of tedious work. If you hire it done, expect a rather large labor bill.

    Mine were mounted in the rear seat armrests - they worked great there. I installed the Garmin 340. It was either that or one of the PS Engineering units. My choice was Garmin so that the entire panel was from a single manufacturer. I'm sure you would be happy with either.

    My airplane is a A23 build in Dec 1964. I think the Sundowners have a different set up in the back seat so that it may be more feasible to mount the jacks in the arm rest. I don't have arm rests in the back. Garmin was not an option when I bought my PS several years ago so my selection of PS does not reflect on Garmin at all.
