Easy to use while flying
• Simple one-handed operation is the 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 “flip-flop” 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 battery charging when using the AC wall charger, BC-110. The cigarette lighter cable, CP-20, provides for battery charging and operation from an external DC source. When the battery pack is installed, simultaneous charging during operation is also possible. In addition, an optional battery case, BP-208N, is available.
