Default FUNKE ATR833 radio

I'm putting a second radio in the 12 and it needs to one that fits in a 2" hole. Options seem to be Trig, Becker or Funke (have eliminated Microair). Had decided that Trig was way to go but best price from supplier here in Oz is on Funke. Anybody have any experience with them? Have heard a positive comment but really know nothing about the brand.

Default 8.33 radio

Ever thought of MGL?
Here in Europe the V6 is the cheapest 8.33 available, and the lightest as well. Fits into a 2" hole, and works flawlessly.

Thanks Hans. Looks interesting. Have never really considered MGL for anything buy some of the guys around here have their gear in RVs and are happy with it.

FWIW, I'm very happy with the MGL gauges i've installed as well... Fuel, Oil temp/press, EGT/CHT. No experience with the radio but I haven't seen anyone complain about it here on VAF...
