"I had a minor problem with my ICOM A14 (it was a major problem for me) but the Banyan service rep was able to diagnose it as a faulty battery. She sent a new one to me the same day and followed up to make sure the issue had been resolved. Thank you for the exceptional service!"

Icom and other aviation handheld radio devices
Icom is one of the major manufacturers of aviation handheld radio transmitters and receivers. Icom is not the only provider of these handheld radios, but they are a key player in the industry.
Aviation handheld radio receivers provide pilots with the option to communicate for safety as well as for easy communication. Banyan Pilot Shop offers a variety of different aviation handheld radio options to suit particular pilots' needs. Be sure to consider your needs as a pilot before choosing your aviation handheld radio. Some models, like the ICOM IC-A24 airband transceiver, offer an automatic backlight and 200 memory channels for ease of use. Other transceivers focus on rugged durability: water-resistant and impact-proof, this type of handheld radio is more intended for emergency use only and less for regular use.
When choosing a handheld radio, be sure to consider the circumstances surrounding use. Will you employ your radio regularly, or in emergencies only? Do you have a large number of contacts, or only a few? If you're not certain which type of aviation handheld radio is right for you, please call our staff of pilots and consultants and describe your situation. We'll be happy to help you choose the radio that's right for you.
