Re: VHF Radio in the cockpit
I realize it's heresy, but I never even look at the compass. I am a GPS man. I know, you respond, "But what happens if the GPS system goes out?" To which I then reply "if the GPS system goes out that probably means all out war, so I have worse problems to think about."
If I really needed the compass, I am sure I could switch off the radio and use the one in the cabin.
Okay further to that, would a radio give off enough heat that keeping it in the navpod would kill anything?
