    Icom - Iridium

    Might be old news to you guys that use sat phones, but might be promises of things to come for at least the Alaskan pilots who may depend significantly on them.

    Japan-based Icom Inc. has partnered Virginia-based Iridium Communications Inc. to sell a new satellite Push-To-Talk communications product for the Iridium network.

    Cool idea. Hope it works better than the A210 did.

    Was the A210 no good?
    I had an A200 & it worked just great.
    A buddy of mine had A200's in a couple different planes & never a problem.
    Cessna Skywagon-- accept no substitute!

    Horrendous. Bad internal shielding, poor squelch control, noisy. Other than that, I guess it was a good unit.

    The A200 was a completely different animal. It was a cheap replacement for the KY 97A. No where near the quality of the KY but, overall, not a bad unit.
