The Sperry/Honeywell RT-300 can be used as a replacement for the RT-220 as long as Pin E in the RT-220 mating connector is jumpered to Pin N. Of course, the mounting trays would need to be changed to compensate for the size differences between the two units.
Dirty antennas can sometimes cause poor or erratic operation of the radio altimeter system. Especially during winter months, some aircraft's nose wheel's throw dirt and slush onto the antenna. As a preventative measure to keep the antennas clean, a quality aircraft wax can be applied to the antenna.
Display lockup is a commonly encountered problem where the indicator locks up at a low indicated altitude between 5-50 feet. Some pilots will report that the radio altimeter will work normally at low altitudes but after climbing above a certain altitude the indicator locks up. Once the aircraft descends past the locked altitude, the radio altimeter works normally again.

In almost all cases, the cause of lockup is excessive signal leakage between the receive and transmit antennas. Signal leakage is commonly caused by the following situations:

- Antenna reflections hitting an object below the fuselage such as landing gear, skids, or searchlights.
- Poor ground plane between the antennas and the airframe, antennas not mounted on the same piece of metal, or antennas mounted on composite material
Sometimes a pilot may report that the radio altimeter may start indicating altitudes in the rad alt range (0-2500 ft.) at altitudes between 18000-20000 feet. This frequently occurs when flying over a reflective surface such as calm water. What occurs with second time around acquisition is that the receiver detects a return signal that was transmitted two pulses earlier not the transmitted signal it should be receiving. The time between transmitted pulses is equal to a distance in the 18000-20000 ft. range. Therefore, the receiver may process it as though it was signal it was actually trying to receive and then display the incorrect altitude.
Large needle fluctuations is a problem commonly seen when a helicopter is hovering over a soft, diffused surface such as grass. Needle jumps are usually less than 50 feet but can range from hundreds to a thousand feet. Once the helicopter moves forward, the radio altimeter should operate normally again. This needle jumping occurs because the radio altimeter is experiencing decreases in received signal strength. Over a soft, diffused surface, the signal reflection consists of hundreds of small weak reflections with different time and phase, directional qualities. These differences cause cancellations in the total return signal and cause the needle to jump.

To correct this needle jumping, some radio altimeters have an extended dB STC range. This extended range provides an additional receiver gain that can reduce the decreases in signal strength. However, the additional dB gain increase can subsequently increase the potential for display lockup caused by poor isolation between the antennas.
Southeast Aerospace exchanges are based on the return of an undamaged, economically repairable core unit with identical part number as the unit shipped to the customer. An "economically repairable" core is defined as one where the cost to repair/overhaul (or Repair Cap) does not exceed 80% of the original SV/OH exchange price billed. Should the Repair Cap exceed 80%, the customer will be billed the additional amount. In the event this amount exceeds the Outright Price for the unit, the customer would only be billed the difference between the Outright Price and SV/OH Exchange Price with the core returned as-is to the customer.

Here is an example of such a transaction:

$1000 Exchange Price charged to customer
$1000 x .8 = $800 Maximum Allowable core repair charge or Repair Cap

$2000 Cost to repair core unit
- $800 Less Core repair cap
---------
$1200 Additional billing amount.

2200.00 Total Cost of transaction

Please Note:
SEA offers exchange on new items as well. However, repair cap as indicated above is still based on SV/OH exchange price.
