VHF AIR BAND TRANSCEIVER

IC-A210

Innovative Airband That's Easier to Install and See in More Places

Large, Bright OLED Display

The IC-A210 has an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display. The display offers many advantages in brightness, vividness, contrast, viewing angle and response time compared to a conventional display. In addition, the auto dimmer function adjusts the display for optimum brightness at day or night.

Easy Channel Selection

It's fast and easy to select any of the memory channels in the IC-A210. The "flip-flop" arrow button switches between main and stand-by channels. The dualwatch function allows you to monitor two channels simultaneously. In addition, the auto stack memory stores the last 10 channels used and allows you to recall those channels easily.

GPS Memory Function

When connected to an external GPS receiver* equipped with an airport frequency database, the frequency data such as nearby airports can be transferred and made available in the IC-A210.

* Ask your dealer for available GPS receiver details.

12 V/24 V DC Power Source

The built-in DC-DC converter accepts a 12/24 V DC power source. The IC-A210 is easily installed in most airplanes or vehicles.

Intercom Functions

The IC-A210 has a built-in voice activated intercom function allowing the pilot to talk with the co-pilot via the headset. The IC-A210 has adjustable audio level and squelch control functions.

Easy Installation

The IC-A210 neatly fits inside the common mounting brackets used on most airplanes including Icom's IC-A200. Two types of rear-panel adapters are included, allowing for streamlined plug-in connectivity.

* Ask your dealer for compatible panel mount radio details.
