Radios Installed!

6 hrs
Wired up co-pilot PTT circuit. Test for correct operation.
Reinstall trim circuit from pilot stick, reinstall trim servo.
Clean up center section wiring.

Installed 430W. Start initial testing. It's a bit nerve wracking to power up a very expensive piece of certified avionics.
Working well so far, GPS antenna is working, Comm antenna, transmit and receive working.

Install autopilot and route pitot and static lines.

Need to spend a bunch of time configuring the 430, the Skyviews, and the autopilot.

I haven't been taking very many pictures, but I haven't been working every day for that last couple of months. I did a little catching up.
How's this panel looking?
