Icom America Wins Large U.S. Army Order for New Radios
Bellevue, WA - The U.S. Army has selected the Icom F43G series portable transceiver for in-the-field soldier communications. The Icom F43G radios are part of a package known collectively as the Military Bundle. These radios were tested extensively by the Army's Battle Lab before a purchase recommendation was made. The GSA purchase deal is for over 20,000 Bundles and represents the largest government order in Icom America's 25 year history. The order uses Icom's new, next generation F43G series portable radios. These radios offer more power for today's urban-patrolling soldiers. The extra power helps radio signals "wiggle" around buildings, vehicles and other obstacles.
