The new Icom IC-A220 is more versatile, and has more features than any
other panel mounted com transceiver on the market. The unique Organic LED
display is brighter, has more contrast, and has a wider viewing angle. Other
features include a built-in voice activated two place intercom with independent
volume and squelch controls, 14v or 28v operation, instant 121.5 emergency
button, active/standby flip/flop frequency selection, powerful 8 watt
transmitter that is 8.3 kHZ compatible, and NOAA Weather channels. The IC-A220
also allows you to listen to the standby frequency, and can interface to most
GPS's so you can transfer frequencies directly from the GPS database into the
Large, bright OLED display
The IC-A220 has a bright organic light emitting diode (OLED) display with a wide
170-degree viewing angle. White characters on a black background give the viewer
clear, easy to read operating information. The white key backlighting and white
OLED display match a modern plane’s instrument panel. In addition, the auto
dimmer function adjusts the display for optimum brightness for either day or
Easy Channel Selection
It's fast and easy to select any of the memory channels in the Icom IC-A220.
The "flip-flop" arrow button switches between main and stand-by channels. The dualwatch function allows you to monitor two channels simultaneously. In
addition, the auto stack memory stores the last 10 channels used and allows you
to recall those channels easily.
GPS Memory Function
When connected to an external GPS receiver equipped with an airport
frequency database, the frequency data such as nearby airports can be
transferred and made available in the Icom IC-A220.
12V/24V DC Power Source
The built-in DC-DC converter accepts a 12/24V DC power source. The Icom IC-A220
is easily installed in most airplanes or vehicles.
The Icom IC-A220 has a built-in voice activated intercom function allowing the
pilot to talk with the copilot via the headset. The IC-A220 has adjustable audio
level and squelch control functions.
The IC-A220 has a D-Sub 25-pin industry standard connector for easy
installation. The slim case can be installed into a tight panel space. If your
current radio has a card edge connector and you plan on installing your new A220
into the same housing, use the MBA-3 rear panel adapter for installation.
The Icom IC-A220 neatly fits inside the common mounting brackets used on most
airplanes including Icom's IC-A200 / IC-A210. The IC-A220 can be interchanged with most
panel mount radios including Icom's IC-A200, Honeywell Bendix/King KY96A/KY97A
and Garmin's SL40.

Pros: Simple... yet versatile set --with many features
Cons: None !!
Review: Undoubtedly a Superior Transceiver. I have now bought six IC-A220's with two so far installed..one over three months ago. I am informed by ICOM that the A210 the A220 and A220T each are similar in their design and function.
