Made with the student pilot in mind
The IC-A14 series is the ideal flight companion
for the student pilot. This radio practically pays for itself by
saving pilots both engine hours and fuel during preflight
communications with the tower.
700mW* loud audio
Because air band radios are usually operated in high-noise environments, it is
essential for the radio to provide loud and clear audio. The IC-A14/S series
employs a BTL amplifier that doubles the audio output, offering loud and clear
audio thatll cut through cabin or tarmac noise.
* Internal speaker only
Full keypad type or Simple keypad type
The IC-A14 full keypad type allows you to input the channel or frequency
directly and has an exclusive button for the 121.5MHz emergency channel. The
IC-A14 receives NAV and WX channels. The IC-A14S simple keypad type provides
simpler operation with a minimum of buttons that is suitable for ground crews.
Compact, light weight and rugged body
The IC-A14 series is compact (only 120mm tall) and light weight (approx. 350g
including antenna and BP-232N). The water resistant construction, equivalent to
IPX4, provides reliable operation in wet conditions.
Large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack
With the 2000mAh large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack,
BP-232N, the IC-A14
series provides stable output power and 18 hours long (approx.) operating time*. The BP-261, battery case takes 6 AA (LR6)
alkaline cells for convenient battery backup.
* Typical operation, Tx:Rx: Stand-by=5:5:90.
200 channels with memory banks
A total of 200* memory channels can be named
with an 8-character channel name for easy recognition. For fast and simple
operation, these channels can be grouped into 10 memory banks*.
* IC-A14 only. The IC-A14S has 100 memory channels and
memory banks are not available.
BC-179 holder type battery charger
The battery charger, BC-179, securely holds and charges the radio, even in bumpy
conditions. The cigarette lighter cable, CP-22, can be used with the BC-179.
