700 mW* 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 that’ll 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 121.5 MHz 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/S series is compact (only 120 mm tall) and light weight (approx. 350 g including antenna and BP-232H). The water resistant construction, equivalent to IPX4, provides reliable operation in wet conditions.
Large capacity Lithium-ion battery pack
With the 2350 mAh (typ.) large capacity Lithium- Ion battery pack, BP-232H, the IC-A14/S series provides stable output power and 20 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. IC-A14S
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-160 rapid battery charger
The rapid battery charger, BC-160, quickly charges the BP-232H in 3 hours (approximately). The cigarette lighter cable, CP-23L, can be used with the BC-160.
