Portable VHF COM Transceiver (NEW 25 kHz/8.33 kHz Dual Channel Spacing Version)
This new version of our popular IC-A6E is identical to its predecessor but now features 5W output power and 25kHz/8.33kHz dual channel spacing.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 use at night time.
25kHz/8.33kHz dual channel spacing
In addition to the widely used 25kHz channel spacing the IC-A24E/A6E are also compatible with 8.33kHz channel spacing.
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.
Simultaneous operation and charge from external power source
The IC-A6E 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.
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. Two versions of the IC-A6E are available
