IC-A6

The IC-A6 is the direct successors to the ever-popular IC-A3 series of Icom handheld radios. Just as those products broke new ground with pilot-friendly features, the IC-A6 continues the tradition by providing even more of the most pilot-requested features.

Compact, stylish body
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 nighttime flying.

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.

Icom F series battery packs and case
The IC-A6 shares the same battery packs and case with Icom’s commercial range of radios including the IC-F12, F3G, F31G series*. A variety of battery types are available including Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, and Li-Ion batteries. The BP-208N, battery case is also available with 6 AA (LR6) alkaline cells as a backup battery source.
* Uses N-type reinforced battery packs/case.

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.

VOR navigation function
The IC-A24 has VOR navigation functions. The DVOR mode shows the radial to (or from) a VOR station and the CDI mode shows the course deviation to (or from) a VOR station. You can also input your intended radial to (or from) a VOR station and show the course deviation on the display.

IC-A110

Conveniently sized for the airband market, the IC-A110EURO Air Band transceiver is capable of being installed in most vehicles and is specially aimed at airport ground crew.

Simplicity and ease of use are the watchwords for the IC-A110EURO. The IC-A110EURO features a limited number of keys and a clear LCD display that makes the product especially straightforward to use. In fact, this transceiver can display up to 7 character memory names for each channel allowing quick and trouble-free channel recognition and selection.

A side tone function is incorporated, which allows transmitted messages to be heard by standard aviation headsets (even in the most demanding operating airport conditions). Additional to the predominantly used 25kHz channel spacing, the IC-A110EURO complies with new regulations and uses 8.33 kHz channel spacing.

The IC-A110EURO is extremely robust and can be used in the extremely cold weather conditions. In fact the LCD is guaranteed to work in temperatures from -30C to 70C. The IC-A110EURO also includes a clever ‘on hook’ scan function. Hanging the microphone on the microphone hanger activates the auto scan function. When released, the transceiver will return to the last used, or priority channel, depending on the selection. Various scan functions, such as VFO and priority scans are also available.

The IC-A110EURO compactly measures 150(W) x 50(H) x 180(D) mm thus making it ideal for mounting in a broad range of vehicles. A total of 20 memory channels are available. The IC-A110EURO has a front mounted speaker capable of producing audio output power of 1.5W allowing audio to be clearly heard during operation (this can be increased to 10W with an external speaker).
