Icom IC-A14 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-232N). The water resistant construction, equivalent to IPX4, provides reliable operation in wet conditions.

Large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack
With the 2000mAh large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-232N, 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 optional cigarette lighter cable, CP-22, can be used with the BC-179.

  • 5W typ. (PEP), 1.5W (CW) output power

Pros: Transmissions clear, unit light but easy to use.

by Ms. Shoeman from Plantation, FL 
Review: Bought the ICOM A14 and couldn't be happier. For the price point its the BEST little radio/transceiver out there ! Hubby bought the IC-A 24 at the same time (xmas) and I couldn't tell him I'd bought the A 14 as a surprise. I didn't know much about radio's and after I did lengthly research I discovered that many loved the smaller handset, the lithium battery and the fact the charger is easier to place/remove. When he got the radio, I thought he would want to use his A24 that he picked out himself, but he actually liked the ease of the A14 better. (yay me!) and thanks to all of those who gave the reviews like this one which helped me decide which model to get. The numbers are a little smaller on the A14 than the A24 but once you program your frequency/tower its in there and you dont reference it that much. ICOM was also the best brand overall for transceivers like this one, by a slim margin (reviews) but I'm glad I chose it and this A 14 model. He loves it and still uses it all the time. Hope this helps. Purchased Dec/2014.

Simplified Memory Instructions
by Tom Clark from Henderson NV 

Pros: Sensitive receiver, solid build quality
Cons: Nearby electronics such as computers and fluor light ballasts make static.

Key in the desired frequency or use [UP/DOWN] arrows
Press [FUNC} note "F" symbol flash briefly on display
Press [MW MR] note "M" blinking symbol on display
Press appropriate NUMBER key to select desired memory channel
(note that an empty memory channel will not show any frequency at this point)
Press [ENT] to memorize the channel number
Press [FUNC] and then press [BANK]
Press [UP/DOWN] arrows to select desired bank (from 0 to 9)
Press [ENT] to memorize the selected bank
Press [ENT] again to finalize
(keylock ON when finished programming)

With the engine turned off, the glider will call me or the other tow pilots to let us know that we can start the engine and taxi to the take off position thereby saving fuel and engine time on the tow plane!

My first aviation handheld radio
by Celso from Miami, FL 

Pros: Ergonomic, well built, good, clear sound.
Cons: Poor range in the cockpit unless an external antenna is used.
Review: Overall I am satisfied with this radio. It is my first handheld and I do not have much experience with aviation communications. The range on this radio is poor unless I use an external antenna. I was able to do a 5x5 radio check, ground-to-ground at a distance of 6 miles using an ELT external antenna.
One battery charge seems to last forever when monitoring.

Performs as advertised
by David from Milton FL USA 

Pros: Small, good range
Cons: Programming functions are difficult
Review: Tested it in the air, and it has good range. Able to talk clearly to ATC from over 10 miles out without an external antenna. Speaker easily overcame cockpit noise in my C177. Manually entering and using channels is intuitive, but when you want to program into memory and use other options, make sure you have the manual with you. Overall, very satisfied.

Good basic radio. Good value
by scott CTSW from Dallas, TX 

Pros: LiIon battery, squelch buttons, battery voltage readout when you turn the unit on (cool).
Cons: Headphone jack cover, manual
Review: I bought this to replace an ICOM A6 that I ran over with my car (which still works, BTW, with new antenna). I've given up trying to use the memory on these radios. The manual does not give a good example, you have to use trial and error.

The sound is good. I like the smaller size. I do not like the screw-on cover for the headphone. I'll probably remove it and cover the jack with tape.

What A Transceiver
by Doyle F from Crossville TN USA 

Pros: Good range, portable, easy to use. Good volume,
Cons: Squelch could be better
Review: As an aviation lover I must say, this beats the competition. Good volume in noisy conditions. Good range, just to see what these could do, I drove 10 miles from home. Contacted my daughter and it was load and clear.  In the air I am willing to bet the range would reach much further. The manual could have been just a little clearer but with it's help and some poking around I was able to figure out this jewel easily. I'm picking up and listening to air to air and air to ground very well. Makes a great back up radio, I am a huge believer in keeping redundant back up. When we go camping I will be taking this along, If we get in trouble and need rescue and the helo is above us and we can't signal, this will be the tool that gets us out fast, why you ask, because we can talk to the helo.  I highly recommend you get the alkaline battery pack to go with it, just in case there's no way to charge it. You can always pop the AA battery pack in and your set.  Get this radio it's a must have for hikers and pilots.

One design flaw...
by Mark from San Pedro CA USA 

Pros: Excellent unit all the way around
Cons: Headset port cover plate.
Review: Love the unit, excellent all the way around with this exception:
In order to use a headset must remove two jewler's screws that hold a plastic cover plate on the right side of the unit.... right.
So let's suppose - I'm in a multi-engine IFR hold at night in moderate chop and I lose comm. I snatch my trusty ICOM from the bag AND my jeweler's scredriver and set about remving these two screws.. NOT!!!

Please put a rubber gromet system in place and make it kit form so we can retro-fit existing units. At that point I'll come back and give it 5 stars.

A very happy customer othewise.

Good transceiver but poor users' manual
by A Customer from Tucson AZ USA 

Pros: transceiver performance
Cons: owners' manual poorly written
Review: The transceiver works well. BUT I found the users' manual frustratingly unclear in places, e.g., the section on storing frequencies in memory. I urge ICOM to hire a professional editor for a rewrite into clear, plain, illustrated English and put the result into a PDF file online for download.

(ICOMM can do this well if they choose: The ICOM manual for my IC-756Pro ham radio transceiver is clearly written.)

Programing Nightmare
by Kent from Nebraska 

Pros: Tough with good performance.
Cons: Very difficult to program channels to scan.
Review: This is a decent radio as far as performance. However I really question that not one review here mentions the difficulty in programming channels.

Good Insurance
by George from Osawatomie KS USA 

Review: While I have not needed to use the transceiver, I have tried it out at the airport and it works well. I was motivated to buy it when I lost electrical power on a night flight 15 miles from my base. The runway lights were on when I arrived but had it been after 2200, they would have been out and I would have had no way to turn them on.
The hand held transceiver is probably the best insurance against me having that problem again but, if I do, it will be a handy back up.

If you want the BEST hand held radio, the A14 is it!
by Michael from St. Louis MO USA 

Pros: Freq. response, battery life, all the features, to many to list
Cons: None
Review: If you need an air-band radio you can count on, the IC-A14 is the best.
I wish Icom made this model in the ham radio. The only down side is the owners manual and the misprints are due to language translation, but you can get it with some thought.
This is simply the best hand held radio I have owned.
By the way "mypilotstore" was great, I recommend buying from them.

Works as Intended
by Jim from Atlanta GA USA 

Pros: Compact, Durable, Ease of use
Cons: No Keypad backlight
Review: I've had this radio for 2 months now and it works great. Several flights ago, I decided to test it on a vfr approach in a noisy C182. I received ATIS 14 miles out with no breakups or static. Contacted Tower 10 miles out and communicated effectively all the way to the ramp. Could use a keypad backlight for night flying though. Overall, a good radio for the price and works as intended.

Great little radio
by Luis from Naperville IL USA 

Pros: Long lasting battery
Cons: No lighted keypad
Review: I bought this radio because of the 2000 MAh Li-Ion battery. I am not disappointed. This battery really lasts forever. The manual says 18 hours but it seems like it lasts a lot longer. Contrary to other reviews, I found this radio really easy to use. On my first day I was already saving and naming memory channels without the manual's help. I found the display rather small. The frequency numbers are easy to read but other display data can be hard to see (the "TAG" or "ANL" signals, for example). The light stays on until you turn it off but only lights up the display and not the keypad. All in all, I would recommend this transceiver to anyone. I also had no problems with's delivery. Fast and efficient service.

Almost Perfect
by Ahmed from Mactan airport, Philippines 

Pros: Size, weight, signal, battery life time, sound quality, memory arrangment
Cons: Simple Head phones connection
Review: The device has met most of my expectations, it is perfect for student pilots, I really like the heavy duty body, the long battery lifetime, the light weight, dimensions, strong signal, easy memory arrangment and recall. Generally very reliable and easy to handle and use. But for me it has only lacked the option to connect a simple headphones, I know it needs the opc-499 to connect aviation headset but for headphones although it has a 3-conductor 3.5mm plug the headphones work on one side only

Sturdy product
by mike from springdale AR USA 

Pros: Price, quality
Review: It has all the features most pilots would want, but the memory recall operation isn't as intuitive as it could be. Overall still a nice radio.

Highly recommended!
by A Customer from Gansevoort NY USA 

Pros: Easy to use and sound is clear.
Cons: Can't really think of any.
Review: I like the fact that the radio doesn't take up a lot of space yet the sound is very clear and it has a long range. I also like the fact that not only can I store frequencies that I commonly use, but that I can keep it organized. Lastly, I like the fact it is simple to use. Once programming, I only have to hit the up or down arrow to change channels. I highly recommend this radio!
