New Icom IC-A6E/ A24E VHF Airband Transceivers now with 25 kHz/8.33 kHz Dual Channel Spacing!
Icom UK are pleased to launch their new 25 kHz/8.33 kHz dual channel spacing versions of the popular IC-A6E and IC-A24E Airband transceivers. Cosmetically, the new versions of the IC-A24E with VOR, and its com-only counterpart, the IC-A6E are identical to the older versions. However, inside these new versions, the electronics have been significantly redesigned to allow 8.33kHz compatibility as well as to improve overall performance. Noticeable enhancement is that the transmit power for the European versions has been increased from 3.6W PEP (1.0W CW) to 5.0W PEP (1.5W CW). The IC-A6E incorporates an easy to read 6-character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD which displays a variety of information clearly. Both the display and keypad are backlit – very useful in low-light situations. The channel recall function automatically memorises the last 10 used channels and is easily accessed from the recall buttons on the front panel - very convenient for switching between several channels. The IC-A24E has all the main features of the IC-A6E, but also includes an inbuilt VOR facility, which not only allows simple VOR fixing and tracking, but also access to co-located ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service) broadcasts. DVOR (Direct VOR) mode shows QDM to (or radial from) a VOR station and the CDI mode shows the course deviation in relation to a user-selected track to or from a VOR. The new versions of the IC-A6E and the IC-A24E are available now from Icom Aviation dealers. A 'Sport' Pack is available combining the IC-A6E or IC-A24E transceiver with BP-208N AA Battery Case, CP-20 Cigarette Lighter Cable with DC-DC converter, MB-103 Belt clip, FA-B02AR antenna and handstrap. A 'Pro' Pack is available combining the IC-A6E or IC-A24E transceiver with BP-210N Ni-MH battery pack, OPC-499 Headset Adapter cable, BC-119N rapid desktop charger, AD-101 charger adapter, CP-20 Cigarette Lighter Cable with DC-DC converter, MB-103 Belt clip, FA-B02AR antenna and handstrap.
