Greetings All,

I was wondering if anyone has purchased or is currently using the
Michel MX170C direct replacement radio for the KX170. My radio volume
control is starting to get very touchy in that if it is moved very much
it often cuts out reception. I play with it a bit and everything comes
back and seems to hold until somebody bumps the knob again. Vibration
doesn't seem to effect it, just when the knob is physically turned. I
have been told (Avionics Shop that did the IFR cert) that getting these
repaired can be quite expensive or even not possible. He also said he
would avoid the Michel radio as well. Is this correct info. She
hasn't cut out during flight yet, but I want to start the research
before it gets worse. (My handy handheld is always at the ready, just
in case) The current price from Chief for the Michel is about $1495.

Any thoughts?

Current radio is KX170 with MAC conversion

Thanks in advance
