Dcp01119.jpg (56685 bytes) The single-axis autopilot
I like toys and according with my friends, this is one I should like. It is made by Navaid Devices (www.navaid-devices.com)
Dcp01294.jpg (59737 bytes) Apollo VHF Transceiver
This is the SL-40, a 760 channel transceiver.  It has some nice features that we don't normally see (at least until the new Microair comes out).  For instance, there is a voice activated two place intercom and the radio can monitor the standby frequency while also listening to the active frequency.  For more information, go to the UPS web site (www.upsat.com).

One of my cheap switches (SPST)
These switches are rated 16 amps at 12v DC.  I was sceptical of the internals so I disassembled one after a very harsh test.  I shorted the switch directly on the battery.  The wire melted, but there is no sign of bad treatment on the switch.  While I am certain it can handle the current, I don't know how durable it is.
Dcp01410.jpg (73680 bytes) And a military switch (DPDT)
This one is a military equipment switch... I don't know the rating, but the construction appears to be more durable than my cheap one (and it has been used quite a bit).  
Dcp01295.jpg (40699 bytes) A Comant antenna
This is a CI-291 that I mounted in front of the baggage compartment bulkhead.  I doubled the skin with a piece of 0.040" sheet.
