Portable VHF COM Transceiver (Ground use only)
The IC-A6 is the direct successors to the ever-popular IC-A3 series of Icom handheld radios. The IC-A6 design incorporates the size and durability of the IC-A3 with improved usability. The IC-A6 includes a large LCD, large speaker and easy-to-use panel layout. The side of the radio has a non-slip slit to prevent accidental dropping.
Large alphanumeric LCD
An easy to read a 6-character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD displays a variety of information clearly. Both the display and keypad are backlit, which is a very useful feature for use at night time.
Channel recall function
The new channel recall function automatically memorizes the last 10 used channels. You can easily recall those channels by pushing the recall buttons on the front panel. This makes it very convenient for switching between several channels at a time, such as NAV channels and COM channels.
Simultaneous operation and charge from external power source The IC-A6 has an external DC power jack that allows operation with the optional CP-20 cigarette lighter cable with DC-DC converter. This means that a battery pack can be simultaneously charged during operation.
Dedicated 121.5MHz emergency key
A dedicated red emergency key programmed with a 121.5MHz homing frequency is equipped to give you extra confidence in the event of an emergency.
