Cavanaugh Bay?66S

Cavanaugh Bay is a fantastic, A model alternative. Fewer crowds and a courtesy car to Coolin, a laid back resort town. Also, lots of camping room. It?s also a good day trip from JC.

Trig TT-31

Try the Trig TT-31. You need to change out the tray, but the main wiring harness is the same as the KT-76A. You will also need a position source input to be ADSB out.
