I bought this for an old JD-200 radio, so I could monitor my students during their solo flights. I haven't used it yet to transmit, but it receives fine and clear. My only gripe (the common one) is the cost.

Worked well until ....
I liked this adapter as much as the rest of you .... until the connections began to fail after owning it for three years with light use. Have posed the issue to Customer Service - hope they’ll replace it.

I like the adapter a lot. It's what I was looking for to use with my 200 SP. The only con is I wish that it had an extra strap to attach to the radio or other mountable surface. This would keep the wires from fraying and wearing out quicker.

Will this adapter fit Icoms? Specifically Icom A20.
A shopper on Jul 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Can Sportys answer this question please? I need a confirmation before I buy.. Thanks!
The printed catalog lists a '6-pin LEMO adapter.' Would I need to buy a LEMO adapter IN ADDITION to the regular 'radio-to-headset adapter', or can I substitute one for the other? IOW, can the LEMO adapter plug directly into the SP-400?

Sporty's SP-400 Handheld NAV/COM Aviation Radio
Sporty's SP-400 Handheld NAV/COM Aviation Radio
BEST ANSWER: The LEMO adapter will not plug directly into the SP-400. You would need to go from the LEMO to GA adapter then the GA to SP-400 adapter.
How would one use the SP-400 with a headset and still have intercom capability?
James M on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You wouldn't. The reason I have it is in case of an electrical failure (which has happened to me before) and I only have a few minutes before losing battery power to talk to ATC. With just the handheld radio, listening to it in a noisy plane is difficult, and speaking into it and being understood is equally difficult for ATC. However, with this adapter, I can simply plug my headset into it and it'll just be a shorter-range radio than my aircraft's radios.

In such a situation, I wouldn't be too concerned about being able to talk to my passengers with intercom capability. If I needed to tell passengers something, I'd shout it to them.
Will this adapter alow me to plug my headset headphone and mic both into my Personal Computer as well?
Michael B on Nov 12, 2018

Will these two adapters and an in-line PTT work with a Delcom hand held aviation transceiver?

When using the adapter do I need the inline PTT to key the mic or does the PTT on the radio work to key the mic?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You may use both the inline or the one on the radio with the headset adapter.
