F14/F24 Radio Series Built to Last, Built to Work!


Icom’s new generation of lightweight, portable transceivers -- the IC-F14/F14S (VHF) and IC-F24/F24S (UHF) series -- features high-end functionality at a low-end price. Sporting rugged, military-spec construction and a wide frequency range, the F14/F24 series is perfect for small police and fire departments, warehouses, department stores, schools and hotels. The radios come in both 16-channel and two-channel versions and feature emergency call and voice privacy as standard features. The “positive-action” push-to-talk and function buttons make the radios easy to operate even while wearing gloves. Compatible with either 25-kilohertz or 12.5-kilohertz channel spacing, the F14/F24 series is the ideal product to accommodate radio operators’ changing requirements.
