Durable Stylish Body: The IC-A24/A6 design
has incorporated the size and durability of the IC-A22/A3 and retains the
basic user friendly
interface users loved about the IC-A23/A5.
The large LCD, large speaker and easy-to-use panel layout makes it a rank
above the rest.
On the side of the radio, it has a non-slip
slit to prevent accidental dropping.
Large Alphanumeric LCD:
For the function display, a 6-character 14-
segment alphanumeric LCD is employed to make a variety of information
visually recognizable immediately. An
automatic LCD backlight is standard for night time operation.
Channel recall function:
New for the IC-A24/A6, this function
automatically memorized the last 10 used channels. You can easily recall those
channels by pushing the recall buttons on the
front panel. It is very convenient for switching between several channels at a
time, such as
NAV channels and COM channels etc.
Icom F Series Battery Packs & Case:
The IC-A24/A6 shares the same battery packs
and case with the popular land mobile radios IC-F11,
F3G, F30G series. Variety of battery types,
Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Li-Ion are optionally selectable. The BP-208N, battery case is
available with 6 AA
(LR6) alkaline cells as a backup battery
Simultaneous Operation & Charging From
External Power Source:
The IC-A24/A6 has an external DC power jack
for operation with the ACadapter, BC-110, the optional lighter cable with
DC-DC converter, CP-
20. When battery pack is installed to the
radio, it is also simultaneously charged during operation. An external 11.0V
DC power source
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.
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
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. In
the USA version, the duplex operation allows
you to call a COM channel such as a flight service station etc.,while
receiving a VOR station.
Large 200 Memory Channel Capacity With
A total of 200 memory channels can be named
with a 6-character channel name for easy recognition. By grouping these
channels into 10 memory banks,
quick and easy operation is possible. The
optional PC cloning software, CS-A24 allows you quick and easymemory
management from your PC.
Water Resistant, Equivalent To IPX4:
The water resistant construction provides
reliable operation in wet conditions.
Side Tone Function:
The side tone function allows you to hear
your own voice via a headset. By monitoring youown voice, this function
eliminates unnecessary shouting
on a noisy runway. Side tone level is
adjustable from the transceiver. (Optional OPC-499 Headset Adapter Cable and
external aviation headset are
Variety Of Scanning Functions:
The COM band scanchecks all of the busy COM
band channels, and the memory scan checks the tagged memory channels.
Weather channel scan is also possible.
