ICOM Headset PTT Switch
Will work with IC-A3, IC-A4, IC-A5,IC-A6, IC-A14, IC-A22, IC-A23, IC-A24, IC-A110
It was a nicely constructed item. Unfortunately, it did not work with my setup. A6 handheld and Telex Airman 750. Just a loud tone when remote button pressed. Apparently this is a known issue with the A6. But others have reportedly had success by distancing the antenna from the handheld/button/headset. I do ground ops, so not an option.
It does what its supposed to do. Its on the stick in my Pitts and the lead is long enough to reach the Icom mounted on the right side of the cockpit.
I havent tried this PPT out yet but Im a little embarrassed for ICOM by the quality of the molded parts. I have lot of ICOM gear and this is not up to the normal high ICOM standards. Parting line flash, gates on cosmetic surfaces, sink marks, and poor texturing on both parts. It may work fine but it looks like poor quality.
Product works great and just as described. Quick shipping. Thanks
Works as advertised. The cord seems longer than it needs to be, but I suppose better too long than too short. Mine is just for my backup handheld radio, so it sits on my flight bag until needed.
Works exactly as advertised. Recommend.
Good price, good product, prompt shipping
fully functional and convenient You could use the headset adapter and the push to talk button on the radio itself but this switch makes the PTT convenient and can be attached to yoke. Using the PTT on the radio itself could be a distraction to the pilot in a stressful lost comms scenario.
Quality is great and works well with ICOM IC-A5 radio. You must have appropriate headset-radio adapter to plug it in to.
Works great. I don't understand the previous review comment about not turning off the mic. It's a PTT switch, not a switch to interrupt the mic line. Wrong product.
The Icom PTT has a single plug that connects to the Icom headset adapter which has a third pigtail (other than the mic and headset plugs) for this PTT 3.5mm port.
This is a portable PTT only for use with Icom handheld radios. For panel mount radios like the Icom A210 you will need stick or yoke mount PTT which is wired to the connecter on the back of the panel mount radio. 11-04467 would be an example.
You can use a headset adapter and still use the built in push to talk button on the transceiver. The Icom headset PTT switch is an optional switch to mount on your yoke for convenience.
You will need the Icom headset adapter part number 11-03566 and then this product will work for your IC-A21.
No, the Icom PTT Switch will not work with Yaesu radios. You will need an inline PTT switch such as part number 11-07712. The Yaesu radio will come with the headset adapter.
Sigtronics only recommends using their PTT switch, part number 11-02806.
Yes, this set up would work fine.
Per the installation manual, yes this will work.
