DOES A LOT!  Time owned: more than 12 months
i have owned my IC24 for almost 10 years now, and it is a really great performing little radio. It will do lots of "Stunts" that they dont tell you about... Like receive and transmit over a VERY wide range..... The radio itself has never given me any type of trouble. After dropping it onto concrete floors countless times, the only damage is scratches to the case, and broken battery lips. The big weak point is the way Icom designed the way the battery is held on. If it had a better battery retaining set up I would give it a 5 plus.

Excellent Little radio  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have owned my IC-24AT since 1991. I currently use it with a HM-46 Icom speaker mike, and run the radio through a Mirage B-310G 100 watt amplifier. The radio has excellent receive features, and I have been told many times my audio is excellent. My only negative is that the spurious rejection could be better. I use a Comet GP-9 vertical, and a Cubex 4 element beam, and the pre-amp on the amplifier adds plenty of noice.

Overall, I would never sell this HT, and will use the current set-up (radio and amp) as a back-up when I order my Icom 746.

Oldie but a goodie  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had two that had been around the block and then some before I ever got them. Simple to operate. Can't beat the size. One finally puked inside and died. The other is my "mobile" transciever in the truck. I hooked it to a Mirage dual band amp and threw on a plain olde speaker mic. It works great. For the money I can't say I've ever done better. They're getting old so good ones are getting harder to find. But if you find a good one, grab it. Batteries are a cinch to rebuild.

Great older HT  Time owned: more than 12 months
The Icom 24AT dual band handheld dual band handie introduced ten years ago is still The one. I have had mine 8 years and don't think of trading it for the newer handhelds. The only problem I have had in 8 years of owning this great little radio is that the external power jack had to be replaced partly my fault for using cheap Radio Shack plug and making up my own d.c. power cord. I now use the correct Icom cord. I am suprised that there has not been a review on this great little Handie so I will be first. I really like this handie is easy to use and has a great wide band receiver which also has good intermod rejection. It is like having a scanner and ht in one. If you can find one of these radios in good shape I think you will be glad they were a great handie in there day. 73 Gerry VE7BGP
