Airport contractor vehicles need to monitor and communicate with the Air Traffic Control Tower when working within a movement area. The IC-A6/LI+ is affordable and easy to use and comes with a long-life Lithium Ion battery as well as an NIMH battery.



The airport contractor’s favorite handheld is here! Easy to use while working on the runway. Simple one-handed operation is the most 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 COM channels.  The IC-A6/LI+ comes with the BP-210N rechargeable NiMH battery, BP-211N Li-Ion battery, wall charger, headset adapter, belt clip and wrist strap.

External DC power jack

An external DC power jack allows for operation with the wall charger, BC-110 or the cigarette lighter cable, CP-20. When the battery pack is installed, simultaneous charging during operation is also possible. In addition, an optional battery case, BP-208N, is available. Water resistant construction The water resistant construction provides reliable operation in wet conditions.
