If you want large screen communicators, 'This Island Earth' has the Interociter : a two way radio/TV with built in destructor ray.
It also has a wonderful scene where they are testing mysterious high voltage bead capacitors sent by the aliens. Other scenes involve a radio controlled DC3.
The film replaces the radio engineers of the original book with nuclear engineers.

There's a scene in "Ponyo" (a recent animated film) where one of the main characters uses an IC-7000 on 6 meters to attempt to call to her husband away at sea after a tsunami with the fictional call "JA4LL".

My daughters love that part of the movie.

Not a movie, but the British murder mystery series "Morse", during credits at end, MORSE in code is spelled out in the music.  Also when new characters are introduced their names are spelled out in the music.

They got that new show with Tim Allen, "Last man standing." He's actually a Ham radio operator on the show. They have his call sign on a wood plaque above his computer monitor. They've shown the computer on the ARRL website.  It's not a movie, but a series.

In 2267, 271 years after launch, the Botany Bay was discovered by the USS Enterprise
in a sector where Starbase 12 was the command base for Federation Starfleet vessels.

The crew was transported to the Enterprise and revived, the leader Kahn became a quick
study of the tech manuals by using the library computer in sick bay and took control of the Enterprise,
Kirk later held court martial and left Kahn and his crew on a class M planet to conquer it.

New movie, "All is Lost," with Robert Redford. He is a solo sailor who crashes into a container that washed off a container ship. A hole in the hull lets water into the hull and his electronics. He takes apart the marine band radio and flushes it with water. He lugs a battery topside and does a direct connect to the radio. Tries unsuccessfully to  SOS on marine channel 16. He climbs up the mast and reconnects the UHF connector to his  marine antenna. He is unsuccessful in making a contact.  Somebody who knows and understands radio must have been the advisor for this movie.

I won't spoil the plot or ending, but so many things go wrong for him that the movie could be re-titled, "Robert Redfield's Field Day at Sea."  His only apparent passenger was Mr. Murphy.

How about the scenes in "The Shining" when Shelly Duvall is contacting the Sheriff with an HF transceiver? The Overlook had a shack! One scene where she's kinda lonely and chews with the Sheriff while propping one foot up on the radio table (oddly sexy)
remember when Nicholson destroys the rig?
creepy

I just watched The High and the Mighty.  On board a ship that was trying to assist the airliner in trouble they showed the radio room and there was QSL card from W1AW on the wall...

I guess you're right after some checking-what was it-like a "President" base or something? I assumed that it was a HF radio based on the ranger's console, and I figured a CB wouldn't make the trip reliably. Just my radio-active imagination Roll Eyes
Oh well-technically it's still "radio communication"

On The Beach (well, sort-of)
No sort of there.  Spoiler alert.  It was a ham key attached to a window shade.

Great movie.
