Icom IC-A14 Handheld COM Transceiver

Easy to Use, Rugged and Compact with Icom's “V Speed” Audio!

700mW* loud audio

Because air band radios are usually operated in high-noise environments, it is essential for the radio to provide loud and clear audio. The IC-A14/S series employs a BTL amplifier that doubles the audio output, offering loud and clear audio that’ll cut through cabin or tarmac noise.

* Internal speaker only

Full keypad type or Simple keypad type

The IC-A14 full keypad type allows you to input the channel or frequency directly and has an exclusive button for the 121.5MHz emergency channel. The IC-A14 receives NAV and WX channels. The IC-A14S simple keypad type provides simpler operation with a minimum of buttons that is suitable for ground crews.

Compact, light weight and rugged body

The IC-A14/S series is compact (only 120mm tall) and light weight (approx. 350g including antenna and BP-232H). The water resistant construction, equivalent to IPX4, provides reliable operation in wet conditions.

Large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack

With the 2300mAh large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-232H, the IC-A14/S series provides stable output power and 18 hours long (approx.) operating time*. The BP-261, battery case takes 6 AA (LR6) alkaline cells for convenient battery backup.

* Typical operation, Tx:Rx: Stand-by=5:5:90.

200 channels with memory banks

A total of 200* memory channels can be named with an 8-character channel name for easy recognition. For fast and simple operation, these channels can be grouped into 10 memory banks*.

* IC-A14 only. The IC-A14S has 100 memory channels and memory banks are not available.

BC-179 holder type battery charger

The battery charger, BC-179, securely holds and charges the radio, even in bumpy conditions. The cigarette lighter cable, CP-22, can be used with the BC-179.
