Icom IC-A25CE 8.33khz Air­band VHF trans­ceiver. Sport pack £350, Pro pack £450

Icom has in­tro­duced a lower cost, comms-only ver­sion of its new-gen­er­a­tion IC-A25 hand­held trans­ceiver. It of­fers six watts of out­put power, ‘stylish modern de­sign’, an easyto-use in­ter­face and large, 2.3-inch LCD. Icom says these fea­tures com­bine to pro­vide stress-free pro­gram­ming and easy in-flight op­er­a­tion, and the new unit is claimed to be ideal for cus­tomers in­clud­ing ground sup­port and other pro­fes­sional users who want a ‘no-non­sense, easy to use ra­dio’.

Launched ear­lier in the year, its sis­ter NAV COM ra­dio, the IC-A25NE has the same fea­tures as the IC-A25CE and re­mains the choice for pi­lots who are look­ing for a de­pend­able higher tier ra­dio with Blue­tooth, built-in GPS and flight plan nav­i­ga­tion func­tions.

Both mod­els are avail­able in ‘Sport’ and ‘Pro’ packs to suit users’ re­quire­ments. The Sport pack com­prises ICA25CE or IC-A25NE trans­ceiver with BP-289 AA Bat­tery Case, CP-20 cig­a­rette lighter cable with DC-DC con­verter, MB-133 belt clip, FA-B02AR an­tenna and hand strap. The Pro pack is avail­able ei­ther with the IC-A25CE or ICA25NE trans­ceiver, and in­cludes BP-288 Li-ion bat­tery pack, OPC-2379 head­set adapter cable, BC224 rapid desk­top charger, BC-06 AC adapter, CP-20 cig­a­rette lighter cable with DC-DC con­verter, MB-133 belt clip, FA-B02AR an­tenna and hand strap.
