This pilots guide provides operating instructions for the KMA 30 Audio Panel. Please read it carefully before using the equipment so that you can take full advantage of its capabilities. This guide is divided into operating sections such as Transceiver Selection, Audio Selector, Intercom, and Marker Beacon Receiver, and special func- tions.
tion. When a com is selected for receive, it will stay selected until manually deselected, even if you select, and then deselect its transmitter. Unless the audio panel is in “split” mode, the KMA 30 gives priority to the pilot’s radio Push-To-Talk (PTT). If the MONITOR function is activated (see pg 16 for more details), the au- dio from this radio will be muted when the primary radio (selected for trans- mit) is receiving a signal.

Quick reference KMA 30 Operation This pull-out section covers advanced operation of the KMA 30. Bluetooth Connection 1. Turn on the KMA 30. 2. From your Bluetooth enabled device, search for other devices, and select the KMA 30. 3. If an access code is required, enter “0000” to connect to the KMA 30, unless this is changed (see FAQ #2) You can now make and receive calls with the audio directed through the audio panel, and stream music to Music input 1.
1. What paring code do I use? a. If your phone requires an access code to complete the pairing, you can use 0000 (all zeros). See the table if you wish to change the audio panels access code to “1234,” or “1111”. Hold button on power up Pairing Code NAV 1...
6. My Smartphone didn’t reconnect, what do I do? a. It is most likely that the KMA 30 dropped the pairing either be- cause of added pair that exceeded the limit, or because of some corruption in the stored information. Simply un-pair by delet- ing the KMA 30 in your Bluetooth phone, and re-pairing with the audio panel.
When you activate the Split mode, the intercom is inhibited to avoid confusion with multiple conversations. To reactivate the intercom, press the Mute button. Note: Split Mode does not turn off NAV, ADF, or AUX selected au- dio to pilot. However, the copilot will only hear the selected com re- ceiver and unswitched inputs.

Monitor mode is set to off when the unit is turned off. “Music” controls music distribution, and has three states; Standard Music Distribution, Alternate Music Distribution and Music 1 All Headsets. Music 1 (the Bluetooth device or the Music 1 input on the rear con- nector) can be distributed to all headsets depending on intercom mode.
Recorder Playback The internal recorder is always storing the audio from the radio selected for transmit. To play back the last incoming audio, hold the RCV (top) button on the radio selected to transmit for one second, and release. The playback will start. Playback stops if the radio becomes active, but the new incoming message will not be re- corded.

There are three special functions. “INTERCOM” function is related to the intercom audio distribution, and allows the crew to mute passengers’ inter- com feed when radios are active.

“Monitor On,” when activated, and “Monitor Off” when deactivated NOTE: This mode is NOT remembered through power cycles, to prevent inadvertent blocking of desired audio on the next trip. “Music” Distribution Function The Music Function has three modes. To cycle Music dis- tribution modes, press and hold MUTE button until the annun- ciation starts.
The mute mode functions are controlled through sequential pushes of the Mute button, and include voice annunciations of the mode selected. • Mute On - music will mute with either intercom or aircraft radio - MUTE button is LED lit. Voice annunciation is "Mute on." •...
Swap Mode (Switch from COM 1 to COM 2 remotely) The external “swap” button allows you to switch between the COM trans- mitters without having to reach up to the audio panel, and is a handy way to switch to Ground Control when exiting the runway. This optional switch is usually mounted on the control yoke or a convenient place by the pilot posi- tion.
