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
This is a basic PPT switch that fits right in the jack for the ICOM headset adapter for an ICOM handheld. With just a headset attached, it works great. However, when I tried to use my intercom, I ran into a lot of issues with the side tone not working. The intercom company says that the PPT needs to be on the intercom box, which is a different size jack, so thats a bit frustrating. Anyhow, the ICOM PPT seems well made, and does what its supposed to do.
I really like how durable the p TT button was design. I can see using this for many years.
Used as first stick in my trainer with an A6 radio adapter and was exactly as expected. Happy with this product.
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.
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.
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.

Yes, this works with the Icom A16.
