Helps my older Sportys hand-held transmit farther - so far demonstrated ten miles to a distant unicom.

Thank you David for the review of our Windshield Antenna Kit. The BNC connections should result in a positive click if the connections are within spec. While vibrations can cause suction cup loss of adhesion in some instances, the BNC connection should always be rock solid. You will find the BNC connection very tight initially as this is by design. You may find after about 10 installation cycles that the rubber duck antenna connection becomes more refined and definitive as the nubs on the BNC connector settle into their intended detent-locked position. I would be more than happy to send out a replacement free of charge as your satisfaction is paramount as well which can be coordinated through Aircraft Spruce. Thank you for the terrific review of my product too ! - Rob, Owner, A&P Mechanic, Private Pilot.

The product was just as advertised and Im very happy with what I received. One side note, I did notice my handheld antenna did not lock solidly in place when attached. Vibration when flying did allow it to start working itself free. Im yet to have it just fall off its attachment, but I also always check it as a pre and post flight check list. Still very pleased with the product.

This antenna kit is so helpful when I’m driving on an active airfield. I don’t know how I would manage without it.

Q: How long is the cable of this Windshield Antenna Kit for Icom Handhelds? Confirm compatible with IC-A24 handheld unit.

The entire cable end to end is approximately 73". Yes, it is compatible with the IC-A24 handheld radio. It is designed to work with all models of Icom handheld radios.

Q: Can I use this with my Yaesa 550 handheld radio I recently purchased from you? What other parts would I need?

This item is for the Icom line of handheld radios. Please see part number 11-10079 for the Yaesu equivalent.

Q: If I understand correctly, it is only to lengthen the antenna? will it increase the power, increase the range of the antenna. how else to increase the distance for my icom a6 radio.

Yes, this is to allow the antenna to have a clear view of the sky. It does not increase the power or range but should result in better reception.

Q: will this work with my sportys 400sp?

As long as the radio has the standard coax connection for the antenna this will work.

Q: Can this be used with the Icom A25C hand held radio? Just checking before I order it!

Yes, it can!

Q: I have an Icom portable, would this antenna give me better reception in case of a com fail?

If the radio itself fails, this will not allow the radio to suddenly work. It only improves performance of a working handheld radio. If you asking about your aircraft installed com radio, yes, this will give the Icom better reception in the event your aircraft com fails and you need to switch to the handheld.

Q: How long is the cable?

The entire cable end to end is approximately 73 inches.

Q: Would this antenna work on a Spotys A300 radio?

If that radio uses a BNC connection antenna it should work.

Q: What is the difference between this and the 11-10079 Yaesu version of the same thing?

The difference is that P/N# 11-10079 will include P/N#'s 11-18603 and 11-10463.
