You would think that an air band transceiver radio that's widely known as "The Pilot's Favorite Handheld" has a lot to live up to, but the ICOM IC-A24 air band transceiver radio lives up to the hype. A close relation to the wildly popular ICOM A6 model, the ICOM A24 boasts even more capabilities and features. This ICOM aircraft radio is extremely easy to use while in flight, as it's made by pilots with fellow pilots in mind. It has a large backlit display and keypad that remain on until you turn them off. The external DC power jack on this radio transceiver (IC-A24) lets you continue to use it while you charge it.

Other features include:

  • Ability to call a COM channel while using VOR navigation (U.S. version only)
  • Stores 200 channels; saves last 10 channels used
  • Water resistant

Great Battery Life
By Evan on April 8, 2010
I don't use this with a headset and used it with gliders, so I can't speak on behalf of what Gary mentioned.

I charged this and put it in my flight bag since I fly so infrequently now. That was two years ago; I've since pulled it out and it kept the full charge and it had well over 10 hours of battery life before it finally died. I have the NiMH battery.


nice transceiver
By Gary on February 14, 2009
I am so far disappointed, however, with the radio static when used with my Lightspeed Zulu headset. It seems better through Dave Clarks. Without the headsets it's great (except for the noise from the engine in the background). The VOR nav has a range of under 15 miles where I tested it (up the valley from Salinas, CA).

Features
  • Easy to use while flying: Simple one-handed operation is the most essential feature of the IC-A24/A6. The well labeled, large keypad provides user friendly operation. The large display shows both letters and numbers and is easy to see, making for fast frequency recognition. The display is backlit, and so is the keypad. The light stays on until you turn it off a very handy feature for flying at night.
  • "Flip-flop" channel recall: The IC-A24/A6 stores the last 10 channels used. You can easily recall those channels by pushing the flip-flop recall buttons on the front panel. It is convenient for switching between several channels, such as NAV and COM channels.
  • VOR navigation: CDI mode display The IC-A24 has VOR navigation functions. The DVOR mode shows the radial to or from a VOR station and the CDI mode shows the course deviation to/from a VOR station. You can also input your intended radial to/from the VOR station and show the course deviation on the display. In the USA version, the duplex operation allows you to call a COM channel, while you are using VOR navigation.
  • External DC power jack: An external DC power jack allows for operation with the wall charger, BC-110 or the cigarette lighter cable, CP-20. When the battery pack is installed, simultaneous charging during operation is also possible. In addition, an optional battery case, BP-208N, is available.
  • Water resistant construction: The water resistant construction provides reliable operation in wet conditions.
  • 200 memory channels (20 Ch 10 banks) with 6 character names
  • Dedicated 121.5MHz emergency key
  • Side tone function allows you to hear your own voice via an external aviation headset.
  • Optional Ni-Cd and Li-Ion battery packs
  • NOAA marine weather channels
  • Tag scanning and memory bank scanning
  • ANL (Auto Noise Limiter) for noise reduction
  • Low battery alert
