MGL Radios - unboxing
Received my MGL order today, V16 COM, N16 NAV and Razor control head. Didn't have to wait for long, ordered on November 3, shipped on November 10 after fulfilling a back order on one item.
I couldn't find out much about what each box contained beforehand so I thought I'd document that here.
The V16 and N16 both come with a D25M connector (solder type) with backshell and a crimp SMA connector.
The Razor comes with a D15M connector (solder type) and 2 120 ohm resistors (for CANBUS).
It would have been nice to know what was included in the boxes, I already bought everything that was included because I thought I was going to need it. I'll use what I bought for d-sub connectors because they are crimp style.
I've attached a picture to this post.
These items will be making their way into my panel in the near future along with a PMA8000B audio panel that I picked up. I've got a Bob Archer NAV antenna and a Delta Pop COM antenna arriving next week to round this out. The Garmin GPS 175 is planned for the spring which will complete my IFR upgrade.
COVID-19 related bonus, today's package arrived (USPS/Canada Post) without any import charges or taxes, that saved me more than $120. Guess they want to avoid having people come in to the post office to pay.
