For ground operation/training to power your glass panel, this unit is excellent. That said, if you desire to use head sets for audio, listen to traffic as you train, this unit is NOT desireable. It puts out so much Rf intreference that all you hear is static. After discusssing findings with the manufacturing rep, I came to the conclusion it is working as designed....Just not good with audio.
