Auxiliary Audio: Input from a portable stereo music source or a cell phone for music and phone calls. Included Aux cable can be used for either purpose. Just plug one end into your device and the other into the Transcom III AUX jack.
Battery Or Aircraft Power: The Transcom III is powered by an internal 9V battery enabling up to 13 hours of operation in airplanes lacking a cigarette lighter socket. An auxiliary 4 foot power cord with LED Power Indicator is supplied for use in airplanes which have a socket.
Voice Activated: The voice activation features allows "hands-free" communication between all headsets plugged into the Transcom III. Start speaking and the intercom instantly turns on (no clipping) to replay your message clearly to other headsets; stop talking and it turns off to reduce background noise.
Transmit: Use your portable push-to-talk switch for transmitting to air traffic control. Transmitting can be accomplished from two positions (pilot and copilot). The intercom function is automatically disabled during transmitting, so that only the voice of the person transmitting goes over the air. However, the transmitting person's voice is heard at all the headset positions via the intercoms side-tone output. This feature is especially valuable to the instructor and the student who wish to monitor each other's transmissions.
Fail Safe Radio Communications: Even with the intercom "OFF", the pilot can hear all radio communications and can transmit through the aircraft radio using the headset boom mic.
