Icom IC-A25NE VHF Airband Handheld Radio

Icom’s Next Generation Air Band Radio with Built-in GPS and Built-in Bluetooth®


6 Watts High RF Output Power
For expanded communication coverage, output power has been increased to approximately 6 W typical (PEP)/ 1.8 W typical (carrier) compared to the IC-A24E (5/1.5 W PEP/carrier).

Easy-to-use Interface
Often used functions are assigned to the keypad and you can directly access a desired function. The enlarged flat sheet keypad offers smooth and swift operation.

2.3 inch Large High Visibility LCD
The 2.3 inch large, high contrast and highly visible LCD displays user-friendly, graphic screens and ensures good readability under direct sunlight. The operating frequency in large characters can be recognized at a glance. In addition, the night mode option enables easy viewing in low light conditions

VOR Navigation Functions
VOR screen The CDI (Course Deviation Indicator) is detailed like a real VOR instrument, and displays any deviation from your course.
The OBS (Omni Bearing Selector) enables you to change course from the original flight plan.
The TO-FROM indicator shows the position relationship between your aircraft and the course selected by the OBS.
The ABSS (Automatic Bearing Set System) function enables you to set the current course as a new course in two simple steps.

Near Station Search Function
The near station search function assists you in accessing nearby ground stations. The function searches for nearby stations using the station memories that have GNSS position information.

Built-in GNSS Receiver with Simplified Waypoint NAV
Waypoint NAV screen The simplified waypoint NAV guides you to a destination by using current position information from GPS, GLONASS and SBAS. The waypoint NAV has two functions: Direct-To NAV and Flight Plan NAV. Up to 10 flight plans and 300 waypoints can be memorised in the IC-A25NE.

Flight Plans with Android/ iOS App
Using the RS-AERO1A (Android) or RS-AERO1I (iOS) application, you can make flight plans on an Android/iOS device and import the plan into the IC-A25NE via Bluetooth. The following four functions are available: Create a flight plan, set Direct-To NAV, display flight plan information and display waypoint information.

“Flip-Flop” Channel Recall
The IC-A25NE/CE stores the last 10 channels used. You can easily recall those channels by using the directional keys, the channel knob or the keypad. This is convenient for switching between several channels, such as NAV and COM channels. In addition, you can freely edit (replace, delete and change order) the stored recall channels.

Built-in Bluetooth® for Hands-Free Operation
A third-party wireless Bluetooth® headset, like a 3MTM PeltorTM WSTM 5*, provides convenient hands-free operation. Also, by using the optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset, the side tone function can be used.

* Compatibility not guaranteed.

Intelligent Battery with Detailed Battery Status
The supplied BP-288, 2350 mAh typical intelligent battery pack, provides up to 10.5 hours* of operating time. You can check the condition of the battery pack in the battery status screen. This is very useful for optimum charging and battery health maintenance.

* Typical operation with Tx : Rx (Max.audio): standby=5:5:90. (Bluetooth® OFF, GPS ON)
