Innovative features found in this next generation air band panel mount transceiver are why more pilots trust Icom as the one you add before flight.
White OLED Display and White Key Backlight
The IC-A220 has a bright organic light emitting diode (OLED) display with a wide 170-degree viewing angle. White characters on a black background give the viewer clear, easy to read operating information. The white key backlighting and white OLED display match a modern plane’s instrument panel. In addition, the auto dimmer function adjusts the display for optimum brightness for either day or night.
Easy channel selection
It is fast and easy to select any of the memory channels in the IC-A220. The “flip-flop” arrow button switches between main and stand-by channels. The dual watch function allows you to monitor two channels simultaneously. Additionally, the improved auto stack memory stores the last 20 channels used and allows you to recall those channels easily.
GPS memory function
When connected to an external GPS receiver* equipped with an airport frequency database, the frequency data such as nearby airports can be transferred and made available. * Ask your dealer for available GPS receiver details.
12V/24V DC power source
The built-in DC-DC converter accepts a 12/24V (11.5–27.5V) DC power source. The IC-A220 is easily installed in most airplanes or vehicles.
The IC-A220 has a built-in voice activated intercom function allowing the pilot to talk with the copilot via the headset. The IC-A220 has an adjustable audio level and squelch control functions.
The IC-A220 has a D-Sub 25-pin industry standard connector for easy installation. The slim case can be installed into a tight panel space.

We ordered this to replace our 1990s FBO COMCO/JOHNSON base unit that had quit working. It is a really nice unit, our only complaint is the lack of an audio output connection that can connect to a remote speaker. We called Icom but they had no good suggestions. We ended up purchasing a C28 Wireless Transmitter to put in the phone jack connection and a set of 4 JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth Speakers to put in different locations in the building and so far that has worked great!
ICOM IC A220 B RADIO WITH PS 80 04 POWER SUPPLY BASE STATION
Awesome quality base station. Great audio, great sensitivity, easy to use, highly visible display. Weve purchased two of these and would purchase again if we need to.
