The IC-A220 VHF Airband Transceiver features an innovative, easy to read OLED display. It provides higher contrast, wider viewing angle of almost 180 degrees, and faster response time than a conventional LCD. The most frequently used FLIP-FLOP (Frequency exchange) switch button is designed large enough to be pushed with ease. Adjustable audio level and squelch control functions are also featured.

The IC-A220 also has a built-in voice-activated intercom function allowing the pilot to talk with the copilot via the headset. Additionally, the IC-A220 has 20 memory channels and 20 history memory channels respectively. Often used memory channels can be instantly recalled. Group memory channels are organized into 10 memory channels by five groups (total 50 channels). Weather channel scanning function searches for weather channel signals. 

When combined with the IC-A220, the optional PS-80 power supply provides a convenient base station operation on the ground.

This version includes the panel mounting tray and install kit.
