Recieve worked fine, transmit no worky. Reset the avionics master, reset CBs, tried different coms, tried different headsets, different PTT buttons, nothing.

After a descent acknowledged by another ident, we were VFR. I set 1200 in and confirmed my IFR cancellation with another ident. Flew from Tampa all the way back to Vero VFR. Pulled out my cell phone and watched for when I had service. I had maybe 2 bars of service over Arcadia and immediately called the tower. I told him I was about 30 minutes away, NORDO and wanted to land. Right over the phone he cleared me to enter the pattern via a right base and to look for light gun signals.

About 10 miles out I set 7600 again and tower had me ident to acknowledge.

You're number one, cleared to land.

Great Success!

Huh.... this happened to me on my first solo x-country inside the class B airspace at KSLC.... Almost crapped my self ….

Well done :)
Richard...you've been on a rampage this morning throughout these forums. Take a deep breath and back away from the keyboard!!:beer:

Just a suggestion...
What, you don't like my useless smiley face little dude?;)

Actually, I just blew in late last night from camping and now off with my brother to pick up a full blown 460 motor for his jet boat. 600HP baby!

Cheers and back atcha :beer:
