Icom America Inc. is a part of Icom Incorporated. Started in 1954 by Tokuzo Inoue in Osaka, Japan, Icom Inc. is a publicly held Japanese corporation; its stock is traded on the Tokyo and Osaka Stock Exchanges. Icom Inc.’s roots are in designing, engineering, and manufacturing highly advanced, compact solid-state radio equipment for use in the amateur (ham) radio industry. The company’s product line has since expanded to include communications equipment and products based in the marine, avionics, land mobile and wide-band receiver industries.
The land mobile communications industry is vast, covering everything from military and public safety radios to everyday business two-way equipment like you’d find in a retail store. Icom America’s land mobile division is its youngest – and its largest.
Icom is deeply committed to P25, the North American digital standard for public safety communications interoperability. Icom’s latest P25 radios now offers P25 trunking, bringing more functionality to this growing product line.
Icom is also devoted to IDAS™, its analog + digital line of land mobile radio equipment. IDAS™ uses the NXDN™ protocol to bring next-generation digital capabilities to the industry, all while retaining analog legacy performance. IDAS™ is all about making today’s radios narrowband compliant and more functional–all at a better value than ever before.
