    Aviation HF Intl. have been in the HF Aviation business for some 40 years, understanding the fact that to install a TSO'd hf radio system in an airplane the average cost for used equipment with installation is around 95, 000. to 150, 000. We have come up with the solution for this problem with our portable hf radio system, because its completely portable and we are approved under the FAA's (PED) portable electronic devise rules, the same rules that devises like the Garmin 796, 696 GPS. The Ferry, corporate, and private pilots as well as manufactures like Cirrus, Cessna, and Hawker Beechcraft are using our radio systems. Our radios are being used at NASA, and we are approved in many countries like Israel, Indonesia, Brazil, and Australia just to name a few, we also offer different antenna options as well as a on site supervisory installation service to make the installation easy and painless. When the installation is done you can rest assure that it is done right and it works well. We can be reached at ka9e@usa.com or 815-409-5070. Have a great day.

    We have single portable HF's and dual systems for RVSM.

    Suspicious because you’re new to this forum, and though you say you’re in this business, you cannot spell device or assured... and you think that the FAA approves PEDs?

    Paul, If you were a a good researcher you would know that we have been registered on this site since 2013, I just have not a chance to repost for a long time. The FAA does approve PED's, I have had conversations personally with the FAA about our products and they are pleased that we have a solution. You were not there when those conversations take place so who are you to criticize anyone.

    Mike, there are a number of technically savvy folks here who understand that an HF transceiver is a very different animal than a Garmin GPS, and that just because something is portable doesn't mean it meets the FAA requirements for a PED as explained in AC91.21-1C - Use of Portable Electronic Devices Aboard Aircraft, Section 5. The potential for T-PEDS (RF transmitting personal electronic devices) to interfere with installed navigation and communications equipment which meet TSO standards is much greater than for portable GPS receivers which meet FCC regulations for suppression of sources of potential interference, e.g. local oscillator emissions.

    At the very least, if I were tempted to use your portable HF system I'd want to know the operating frequency range, whether crystal controlled channels or VFO are used to determine transmitter and receiver operating frequency, effective radiated power, emission modes (e.g. AM, SSB, data modes), and harmonic and spurious emissions suppression specs, etc. You have provided no brand name, specs, country of origin, company name (no search hits on "aviation HF intl") or website.

    With all due respect, it's no wonder your post has been met with a degree of skepticism.

    Looks like a couple of Yaesu 100 watt HF ham transceivers modified for frequencies outside of the amateur bands and packaged in a case for portable use. I can't find a physical address location on the website; contact info is a phone number and an email address.

    Hmmm. 7 posts in six years, and snarky when questioned. Yeah, that's a customer support profile that's going to appeal to not very many people, Mike Senior. Best wishes, but you're peeing in your own soup.

    I thought that posting negative comments about items being advertised in the classifieds section was prohibited.

    I know this is somewhat off-topic, however I have been wondering for well over a decade why HF for aeronautical comms hasn't died a quiet death. The technology for SATCOM has been around for many years, so the reason that HF is still being used must be something politically driven, rather than technologically driven. I've been a ham operator for 40 years and spent many nights listening to aircraft cross the Atlantic on HF..... it's a mess. Between GPS and SATCOM, real-time positive air traffic control is possible with accuracy that is equivalent to being in a radar environment.

    What is the political motivation? I cannot imagine that ARINC has that strong a grip on the Washington DC lobby.......

    I think it's more of a political issue at the icao/UN/treaty level.

    Stan, You have not asked for any data, I can't post all of it here, there is just too much of it. The amazing thing is, it looks like you are just lurking on a telephone pole waiting to prounce on someone. If anyone needs data please email me at ka9e@usa.com or aviationhf@mail.com. I will be more than happy to give out any information including physical address. Have a Happy New Year.

    He didn't list an item for sale, he just advertised his business.
