The IC-A220T, Icom’s ‘next generation’ 8.33kHz air band panel mount transceiver and the long-awaited successor to the manufacturer’s IC-A200, is now TSO/ETSO approved and available for sale.
Icom says the new IC-A220T provides effective radio communication in the air and features a ‘slim stylish design’, bright white display, enhanced squelch control and easy installation for pilots.
The IC-A220T has the same dimensions as many previous panel mount radios and can readily be installed is a standard panel radio slot, allowing ‘a trouble free upgrade’.
