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-160 holder type battery charger
The rapid battery charger securely holds and charges the radio, even in bumpy conditions.

Other outstanding features

  • 5W typ. (PEP), 1.5W (CW) output power
  • Side tone function allows you to hear your own voice via a third party aviation headset

Excellent radio

  • By Dale from Davie FL USA on Saturday, December 01, 2018
  • Pros: Small and powerful
  • Review: A Solid piece of electronics. Great volume and clarity and range!

Great transceiver for the money.

  • By Tony from Saint Louis MO USA on Friday, September 14, 2018
  • Pros: Battery lasts a long time. Light weight with a sturdy belt clip.
  • Review: My 30 year old transceiver gave up the ghost so I bought this one to replace it. Fast delivery at a good price. Would buy again.

Worth every cent.

  • By Navin Rudolph Peter from Saint Louis MO USA on Tuesday, April 03, 2018
  • Pros: none
  • Review: Rock-solid and dependable, both by build and performance :)

IC A 14 Airband Radio

  • By Smith from Pago Pago AS USA on Monday, March 12, 2018
  • Pros: Handy
  • Review: IC A14 is always a good product, it does everything and more, short of having it as a primary on flights. It has all the needed function for what we use it for.

EXCELLENT FBO RADIO

  • By Rich from Indianapolis, IN on Wednesday, January 31, 2018
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, simple frequency interface, great audio, great battery.
  • Review: I've been using these Icom IC-A14 radios (we have five) as a line tech for two years. They've been dropped and banged around numerous times and still work like they're new. Our manager has replaced one antenna after it was smashed in the truck door, but that's it. The lithium batteries seem like they never need charged. The audio and transmit are great. The build quality is excellent. I also love the simple keypad, just type in your frequency. No need for complex instructions.

Great value!

  • By Thomas on Wednesday, January 10, 2018
  • Pros: Price was lower than other Icom offerings.
  • Review: The radio does exactly what it should: transmit and receive effectively on air bands.

    I live about 10 miles away from a non-towered airport and I can hear oncoming pilots announcing their arrival intentions before they reach the area. From indoors. I am satisfied with receiver selectivity.

    Glad I bought this radio!

I would buy these items again.

  • By A Customer from Alabama on Wednesday, November 15, 2017
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Review: These radios are being used by our Flight Commanders and they really like them.

6 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Saturday, January 17, 2015

    Q: How do you turn on the runway lights wit the A14 ICOM transceiver?

    A: Runways that are equipped with pilot controlled lighting can be activated by keying the microphone five times in five seconds.  Once activated, you can change from low to medium to high intensity by keying the mic 3, 5, or 7  times in five seconds.

  • Sunday, December 12, 2010

    Q: Does it have a charging indicator light?

    A: Yes, it does have a charging light.  Orange indicates charging, green indicates fully charged and a blinking orange or green indicates a problem with the battery pack.  The supplied BP-232N battery takes approximately 12 hours for a full charge.

  • Friday, April 16, 2010

    Q: How do you attach the hand strap. I just bought one of these and can't figure it out .

    A:

    The hand strap attaches on a small eyelet on the belt clip.

  • Thursday, January 08, 2009

    Q: Will the external head set adpater and PTT for the A5 work on the A14

    A: The headset adapter will not work.  The IC-A5 used the OPC-967 headset adapter and the IC-A14 uses the OPC-499 headset adapter.  The same Icom PTT can be used on both transceivers.

  • Thursday, May 29, 2008

    Q: Does the IC-A14 have nav, VOR capabilities? I dont see specifics about the VOR functions.

    A: The IC-A14 does receive the Navigation Band frequencies (108.00-117.975), however it does not have any CDI or VOR functions.  The IC-A14S does not receive the navigation band frequencies at all.

  • Saturday, March 22, 2008

    Q: does it have a head set adapter?-how is it on resisting ignition interference?

    A: A headset adapter is not included with the IC-A14.  The OPC-499 headset adapter is an optional accessory.
