Our Icom radios are all programmed with SAFA's private UHF frequencies.
All our radios come with default ICOM IC-41PRO factory programming so you can always ask others with the same radio for help. We have added some smarts to it to make your life and the life of your fellow pilots easier. No annoying beeping and no locked-in channels
