Icom A16 Radio
The A16 VHF COM handheld provides a great backup radio for the airplane in case of a comm outage as well as a useful tool for those on the ground who want to stay connected. With 6 watts of power and an extra-loud 1500 mW speaker, this radio cuts through the noise of the flight line or the cockpit to provide clear audio. The radio features a full keypad, 200 memory channels and an exclusive button for 121.5MHz emergency calls. Users can also utilize the side tone function to hear their voice through a headset.
Weighing little more than half a pound and measuring around a third of a foot in length, the A16’s compact size makes it easy to carry. Its rechargeable battery lasts for 17 hours, and it’s waterproof to boot. The radio is available for $259.95, and a Bluetooth-equipped version is available for an additional $40.
