Easy To Use While Flying - Simple one-handed operation is the most essential feature of the IC-A6. The well labeled, large keypad provides user friendly operation. The large display shows both letters and numbers and is easy to see, making for fast frequency recognition. The display is backlit, and so is the keypad. The light stays on until you turn it off - a very handy feature for flying at night!
"Flip-Flop" Channel Recall - The IC-A6 stores the last 10 channels used. You can easily recall those channels by pushing the "flipflop" recall buttons on the front panel. It is convenient for switching between several channels, such as Nav and Com channels. External DC Power Jack - An external DC power jack allows for operation with the wall charger or the cigarette lighter cable. When the battery pack is installed, simultaneous charging during operation is also possible. Water Resistant Construction - The water resistant construction provides reliable operation in wet conditions.
200 memory channels ( 10 banks of 20 channels) allows you to load in up to 10 separate flight plans. 6 character alphanumeric for channel names.
Dedicated 121.5 "emergency" key.
All NOAA weather channels preprogrammed.
Automatic Noise Limiter ( ANL ) built in for noise reduction.
Icom's exclusive front panel programmable side tone allows you to set the correct side tone level for almost any headset.
Icom's exclusive "TAG" scanning and memory bank scanning make it the most user friendly radio on the market.
Excellent radio! Aircraft Spruce got it to me in short order too. If you have difficulty programming, search YouTube for srjscott. He has two videos that will cut thru the BS. My only complaint so far would be the fact that you have to have the battery attached to the radio to charge and there is no indicator to let you know how the charge is progressing or how much charge is left in the battery.
Best price on this radio that I found!
Does the Icom A6 or A24 have 8.33 spacing?
The version of Icom A6 and A24 we sell only has 25 channel spacing.
Which batteries are compatible with the IC-A6 Transceiver?
Part #11-04290 and 11-04385 would both be compatible with the ICOM IC-A6 transceiver.
What does TAG scanning mean? I'm looking for a new handheld that will scan Ground, Tower, and Approach freqs.
The Icom IC-A6 will support aviation frequencies. For more efficient scanning, you can add desired channels as TAG channels.
What is the RF power output of the Icom IC-A6 part number 11-02944?
Per the installation manual: the RF power output is 5 Watts (PEP) typical, or 1.5 Watts (CW) typical. On average most certified aircraft have 10 watt radios such as a Garmin SL 40/King KX 155. This radio has half of the power output of these radios. Also note: line of sight plays a huge part in power output.
