Compact handheld COM transceiver with Lithium ion battery.
Realizing that handheld transceivers are normally used in high-noise environments, ICOM designed its A14 model with a BTL amplifier that doubles its audio output, perfect for GA cockpits and for ground ops on the flightline. The standard Lithium-ion battery provides approximately 18 hours of power, and the backlit screen and keypad make night operations a breeze. Features up to 200 memory channels that can be grouped into 10 memory banks, as well as an auto noise limiter (ANL) for noise reduction. Additionally, the A14 has a dedicated emergency frequency (121.5 MHz) button and side tone functionality, which allows users to hear themselves through a 3rd-party headset. A rugged, water resistant unit that's well suited for the rigors of the GA environment.
From the Manufacturer
The A14 is a Lithium Ion (Li-ion) powered air band transceiver and weather report (WX) receiver. Offering plenty of the features that other Icom hand-held radios are known for, the A14 offers all of the Icom ruggedness and reliability that the brand is known around the world for.
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 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.
BC-179 holder type battery charger
The battery charger, BC-179, securely holds and charges the radio, even in bumpy conditions. The cigarette lighter cable, CP-22, can be used with the BC-179.

Good Basic Radio
I bought this radio to use as a backup radio and to have a radio around in the hanger. It has met my requirements and the Lithium battery has a good life. You can add labels to the stored memory channels for easy reference and the keypad has worked well. The display could be a tad bigger. For the price I paid, I am extremely happy with my purchase. I also bought the headset adapter and keep that in the airplane if needed.

Works like a charm
I love this little guy. I have it turned on in its charging port all day. I recive from as far as 30 miles and have personally transmited 10 miles. When my father flies our plane around the farm I use this from ground as comm. Im sure it could transmit much further just never tried.

Great little radio @ a competitive price. Transmits ground to air out to at least 8 miles so far. RX 11 miles from pattern to my home. Longevity is huge...maintained charge over 18 hrs. monitoring airport (no TX) before I shut it off the next day.
TIP: Operation is somewhat intuitive if you ignore the instructions for programming. Instructions are to be difficult for interpretation. Operator must to be trained to correlate EngLIsh for speak Chinelish. Refer to C pg. 14 and apply instruction figure 12 after operation of A14 as instruction to can resolve????????
Be patient & good Luck.
