Rugged, intuitive NAV- and COM-capable aviation transceiver.
Bringing pilots the ultimate in compact reliability, ICOM's A24 Transceiver offers users the one-handed, flip-flop COM features they've grown to love - now with intuitive NAV capability. In addition to 200 memory channels, backlit display & keypad, dedicated emergency frequency (121.5 MHz) button, and 10-channel flip-flop recall, the A24 comes with a host of VOR navigational functions.
Users can now select CDI and DVOR modes to determine their radial to or from a selected VOR, as well as their course deviation from the selected radial. Taking things up a notch, the duplex feature even allows simultaneous COM transmission and VOR navigation. The familiar functionality of your avionics panel in a battery-operated, compact handheld.
From the Manufacturer
Easy to use while flying
Simple one-handed operation is the most essential feature of the IC-A24. The well labeled, large keypad provides user friendly operation. The large display shows both letters and numbers and is easy to see, making for fast frequency recognition. The display is backlit, and so is the keypad. The light stays on until you turn it off – a very handy feature for flying at night.
The IC-A24 stores the last 10 channels used. You can easily recall those channels by pushing the "flip-flop" recall buttons on the front panel. It is convenient for switching between several channels, such as NAV and COM channels.
CDI mode display The IC-A24 has VOR navigation functions. The DVOR mode shows the radial to or from a VOR station and the CDI mode shows the course deviation to/from a VOR station. You can also input your intended radial to/from the VOR station and show the course deviation on the display. In the USA version, the duplex operation allows you to call a COM channel, while you are using VOR navigation.

I'm a VFR pilot and bought this radio as a backup. Since I've not been in the emergency situation to have to use it (thank God) I still use it as a receiver to listen to ATIS and operations at my local airport. Reception is outstanding. I am about 6 miles from the airport with very mountainous terrain and I am still able to hear the tower and ATIS broadcasts quite well.
Battery life is amazing! (I'm using the Li-ion battery)
Overall, I am extremely pleased with this transceiver! This is a great buy for any pilot.

Squawk 7600 with Confidence
Never leave the ground without the IC-A24. Great piece of eqipment you can count on, knowing you can still communicate when the radio stack in the airplane goes dark and begins smoking...like what I experienced recently in a local FBO rental. I pulled out the A24, and the tower didn't even know the difference until I squawked 7600. Great radio that improves safety and offers piece of mind.

I selected 4 above, but due to a hernia repair, I have not flown since I received the A24 and cannot actually attest to it's capability. I am a little surprised that it would not pick up an aircraft flying nearly over my house when my Radio Shack scanner had it loud and clear. I do like the looks and feel of the unit, and hope it has a longer life battery than the Vertex I am replacing. I could probably give a better review in a month or so. Marty Shingler

ICOM A24 Transceiver
The ICOM A24 Transceiver works exastly as advertised. You do have to hold it up to get a good signal but I suppose that is to be expected - as it's only for emergency use.
