Our Icom radios are all programmed with SAFA's private UHF frequencies.
All our radios come with default ICOM Icom IC-41PRO factory programming so you can always ask others with the same radio for help. Additionally, you can activate preprogrammed SAFA private UHF channels on all Fly2Base ICOM radios. If you are after clear communication when flying we have all colours in stock.
