SkyGeek.com proudly offers the ICOM IC A6 Handheld Air Band Transceiver, a powerful and compact little device packed with features sure to impress any pilot. Combining simple, intuitive operation with a rugged, reliable design, the ICOM A6 is the successor to the A23 and the A5. With a capacity of 200 memory channels and a variety of scanning functions, the storage on this baby is stellar.
The ICOM IC A6 features a large keypad and display for fast recognition and easy, one handed operation. The 6-character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD presents recognizable information, and the keypad employs a new channel recall function that automatically memorizes the last 10 channels. Both the display and the keypad are back lit until you turn them off, ensuring maximum visibility during night flights. The flexible antenna will not get in the way, and the non-slip side slit prevents accidental dropping during those barrel rolls.
Other goodies include an external DC power jack and may be hooked up to a cigarette lighter plug. Unlike many of its kind, you can simultaneously charge and operate the ICOM IC-A6. The ICOM A6 also boasts a side tone function that allows you to hear your own voice in a headset to prevent unnecessary shouting on a noisy runway.
Finally, ICOM recognizes safety first. The ICOM A6 is water resistant and remains reliable in wet conditions. Additionally, the device has a dedicated red emergency key programmed with a homing frequency in case of an emergency.
