from the ground up, the XCOM offers superior performance under the demanding
and noisy conditions experienced in many amateur built aircraft. With
low power consumption, this radio is ideally suited to use in gliders,
homebuilts and ultralights. A full 6-Watt carrier and +20 Watt PEP output
ensure that you will be heard above the general chatter in busy airspace
and the full VOX intercom with music input will enhance your enjoyment
of the flight. With expanded receive range up to 163 MHz, the XCOM 760
provides NOAA Weather reception and has an optional CAP capability, ensuring
that you are always aware of impending weather conditions.
Additional safety enhancements such as dual watch allows the pilot to listen
to the standby frequency while still monitoring the primary frequency. The XCOM
760 also has 99 memory channels, large volume and channel selector knobs and
well spaced buttons. This radio is extremely easy to operate even when wearing
flight gloves and you can even check the condition of your battery with the built
in voltage monitor.
Software update capability and Internet downloads mean that you are always provided
with the latest features. The XCOM 760 offers superior quality, enhanced features
and improved performance over many of the more expensive airband radios, without
the high cost found in other brands.

A great radio, and probably the best intercom I've ever used, all in on package!
From an operational point, the radio is great. From a human factors engineering point, way substandard. The LCD screen is worthless in shaded environment where there is sun around (such as clear canopy setup like my Yak. The backlight is ineffective. The frequenc knob is way too send stove. Forget about changing frequency in flight in the most moderate turbulence. XCOM owner is in complete denial about this blaming it likely on old age.
