I have the Icom A25C (comm only, no nav) and it is astounding. I live in CLE and hear airliners flying over MI from inside my house with the standard rubber ducky antenna that comes with the radio. I use it mostly as a scanner and highly recommend it. The display is the best out there, I wish it had the bluetooth option like the A25N, I don't need the Nav function however. You cannot go wrong with this radio.
