Discover the dramatic improvement in flight cabin conversation with Sigtronics' Transcom II. Pilot-to-Passenger hands-free conversation, radio transmit capability, battery power or auxiliary power, and input-output source all rolled up into one! All standard aircraft headsets and portables push-to-talk switches are compatible with the Transcom II. A music input makes long trips more enjoyable for crew and passengers, and an audio output records flight dialog for post-flight review, a great training tool for any pilot. Coupled with a standard 5-year manufacturer's warranty, this is a sure-fit for all students, instructors, and aircraft renters.

Powered by an internal 9V battery (included), the SPO-22 is good for 40 hours of operation in airplanes lacking a cigarette lighter socket. A 4-foot Aux power adapter is included to allow for seamless operation on either battery or 11-34 Volt DC aircraft power. When using the power cord, the battery is by-passed, preserving the life of the battery.

High Noise Version
The Transcom II is available in a High Noise Environment version. The SPO N Series intercom incorporates special high-noise circuitry that works well in ultra-lights, helicopters, open cockpit aircraft, and with handheld radios. It filters out background noise, lowers the input level at mic amp, increases output signal, and mic interface can be modified to interface with Icom radios. Also features a sidetone modification.

Spo-22n 2p Intercom just ordered the wrong one for my needs

Highly recommended. This is an excellent intercom for high noise cockpits. I use it in a Wittman Tailwind which has a cabin noise level unbearable without an over-the-ear headset. Even at takeoff power it works great and doesn’t break squelch. Just flew an 11 hour round trip cross-country with outstanding results using conventional David Clark headsets. Also utilized the audio input for XM, also with excellent results. Can’t comment on power consumption as I used ship’s power to operate.

This works great for open cockpit LSA with noisy environment. Noise canceling headsets do not work well because this product already provides it. Im very pleased with this item.

I have a very loud, open cockpit gyrocopter powered by a Yamaha engine (also loud). I purchased the high noise version and it works great. If you think your aircraft is to loud for a voice activated intercom, this may be the solution. It is for me. Using w my handheld. Six stars!

The intercom is working well in the high noise environment of my Rans S-12 with a 582 engine.

The high-noise version of this intercom works perfectly in the windy Cub with the door open. It is my second time buying and using this intercom. Recommend it to anyone needing a portable and reasonably priced intercom option.

It works well and I am pleased. One change I would make is to have a little more space between the headset and push to talk sockets so a 90 degree plug can be used for a low profile. That keeps the wires closer to the wall or floor where it is mounted while not sticking up in the way.

Awesome 2-place portable intercom. We use it with a handheld Sporty's radio as a backup for our in-dash Garmin radio. Works very well, low noise, squelch and volume adjustable, PTT available but we just use the Sporty's radio button to transmit, and the intercom stows nicely in our glove box. Very inexpensive addition to allow completely redundant radio and intercom for two headsets in our 2 seat aircraft. Love It. A backup totally independent of the aircraft in-dash radio and intercom in case the electrical system fails.

Q: Can I add an expansion module to make a 4 place out of the SPO-22 2 place intercom?

No, you will have to send it direct to Sigtronics to be worked on to allow the expansion.

Q: Can this intercom be connected to a portable transceiver for communication? Do you have any recommendations on a transceiver to match up with it?

Yes, we recommend either the Icom or the Yaesu portable radio's for use with the Sigtrnoics intercom. You will also need the headset adapter for whichever radio you choose and part number 11-02806 if you would like a PTT switch to attach to the yoke.

Q: Does the Sigtronics SPO-22 2 place intercom come with the auxiliary power/lighter socket cord?

Yes, the auxiliary power cord is included with this unit.

Q: Can this Sigtronics SPO-22 be plugged in to an existing 2-place (co-pilot side) to expand it to a 3-place intercom for the rear set passenger?

No this will not work as this two place intercom is intended to override your current system and can only be plugged into the pilot side jacks.

Q: Can the SPO-22N be configured for an ICOM-A24 handheld? Specifically, which PTT socket is used the female plug on the ICOM headset adapter 11-18537 or the XMIT-SW plug on the intercom? Will a separate PTT switch then work for the passenger?

You can use 11-18529 for the PTT to work on the headset adapter.

Q: What are the impedance values required for both the microphone and headphone speakers? Will it work with both dynamic and electret mics?

As long as the headset is a general aviation headset you can use this intercom.
