Important Information: Beware of Counterfeit Icom Products

Important Information: Beware of Counterfeit Icom Products

We have recently seen some counterfeit copies of Icom radios available online with some also arriving in the UK to unsuspecting buyers. These copies look like genuine Icom radios but when examined more closely are not and are significantly inferior in both quality and performance.

We have also had several buyers contact us who have purchased and thought they were receiving a genuine ICOM. On arrival the radios had an incorrect UK channel set, some channels missing and in some cases, buttons not functioning as expected.

Most if not all of these counterfeit products are found online and compared to genuine are priced incredibly low. However, what might seem like a bargain or a great purchase will become a disappointment and could affect how you use your radio and also your and others' safety.

If you are unsure, ask the seller for a serial number in advance of purchasing, call our customer service team on 01227 741741 and we'll confirm the origin of the radio as genuine or not.

For more information, details of measures against counterfeit Icom products and further guidance, please read our article 'Beware of Counterfeit Icom Products' in the knowledge base on our website.
