Icom IC-A6 COM Transceiver

The IC-A24/A6 has a completely renewed style with a large LCD and speaker. It offers simple operation by way of a minimum of practical functions. With its stylish design and reliable performance, the IC-A24/A6 series is a fitting successor to the award winning IC-A23 / IC-A5.


  • Durable, stylish, and compact body (5-3/32 x 2-1/8 x 1-13/32 in.  15.2 oz.)
  • New channel recall function
  • Simultaneous operating and charging from external power source
  • Dedicated 121.5MHz Emergency key (Programmed with 121.5MHz homing frequency)
  • Water resistant, equivalent to IPX4
  • 200 alphanumeric memory channels with memory banks
  • Side Tone function

Easy to use while flying
Simple one-handed operation is the most essential feature of the IC-A24/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 back lit, and so is the keypad. The light stays on until you turn it off- a very handy feature for flying at night. On the side of the radio, it has a non-slip slit to prevent accidental dropping.

"Flip-flop Plus" channel recall
The IC-A24/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 NAV and COM channels.

External DC power jack
An external DC power jack allows for operation with the included 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. Equivalent to IPX4 (IEC Standard Publication 529 IPX4 - protection against water splashed from any direction).

Large Alphanumeric LCD:
For the function display, a 6-character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD is employed to make a variety of information visually recognizable immediately. An automatic LCD backlight is standard for night time operation. Channel recall function: New for the IC-A24/A6, this function automatically memorized the last 10 used channels. You can easily recall those channels by pushing the recall buttons on the front panel. It is very convenient for switching between several channels at a time, such as NAV channels and COM channels etc.

Dedicated 121.5MHz Emergency Key:
A dedicated red emergency key programmed with a 121.5MHz homing frequency is equipped to give you extra confidence in the event of an emergency.

Large 200 Memory Channel Capacity With Memory Banks:
A total of 200 memory channels can be named with a 6-character channel name for easy recognition. By grouping these channels into 10 memory banks, quick and easy operation is possible.

Side Tone Function:
The side tone function allows you to hear your own voice via a headset. By monitoring your own voice, this function eliminates unnecessary shouting on a noisy runway. Side tone level is adjustable from the transceiver. (Headset Adapter Cable and external aviation headset are required.)

Variety Of Scanning Functions:
The COM band scan checks all of the busy COM band channels, and the memory scan checks the tagged memory channels. Weather channel scan is also possible.

Surprising range!
by David from Elk Grove CA USA

Very easy to use
by A Customer from Son Vestby Norway 

Pros: Very easy to use and excellent specs
Cons: External antennas and amplifiers
Review: This product meets my expectation, and is very easy to use.
It well documented in the manual. But I find it hard to set up scanning of found channels in spite of a lot of capabilities.
One thing that can be improved is external antennas (Type to by etc including amplifiers. I live away from airports)

Great Product
by Scott from Northridge CA USA 

Pros: Well built, good reception, easy to use
Cons: A bit heavy but I think that is because it is well built
Review: This radio is well made and easy to operate. Fortunately I have not had to utilize it for any emergencies but I use it regularly to listen to the ATIS before starting my engine. The reception is clear and I feel I will get many years of good service from it.

Good quality product
by Galen from Mount Vernon IL USA 

Pros: Quality and solid
Cons: Need battery life indicator
Review: Quality excellent. Durability excellent. It needs a battery life graphic. It doesn't do any good when the batter only has 5 minutes left to then show that graph. that should display at all times, including when charging so you know it is charged.

Icom needs design imporvement
by mark from Turners Falls MA USA 

Pros: rugged controls
Cons: Fails to charge battery while powered up/tunred on, complex user interface, manual is poorly written
Review: As others warned, the manual is useless. Icom ought to redesign the user interface such that there's less of a need for a manual. If it was easier to set the channels the lack of an English language manual wouldn't be such a problem. And while the unit 'does what it needs to do', but lack of battery charging capability while turned on remains a serious performance and safety shortcoming. If you forget to charge the battery but then expect it to perform as a reliable backup you'll be stuck with no radio even if the aircraft has DC power. They basically forgot to add a simple steering diode to the DC power supply circuit.

A6 and ICOM not helpful
by Skyflire from Chandler, Az. 

Pros: It fits in the plane.
Cons: Charger poor, Manual terrible - difficult to follow and program the unit.
Review: I use the A6. I had one hell of a time making it work without a constant hum in the background every time we tried to transmit.... a small problem???? I met with ICOM at Oshkosh EAA and they were little help - saying that the unit is overpowered for small planes. We eventually got a fix through the Comtronic headset/intercom people. It has worked fine with the addition of a special filter provided by Comtronics. I am currently having problems once again with the hum and can't figure it out yet. I may plug in my A-21 and use the A6 for a spare, or.... donate it to Goodwill :)

Hate it, bought an older model
by Geezer from Seattle, WA 

Pros: Large screen
Cons: Battery life stinks, manual terrible, programming to difficult.
Review: I'm in Search and Rescue and this is the worst radio I've ever purchased. In process of selling it. The radio battery drains instantly, won't hold charge after charging. Programming is aweful. Instructions stink. I went on eBay and bought a used A4 and am extremely pleased. Don't buy this radio, you will be sorry.

by donald from kerikeri . New Zealand 
Review: I'm very happy with the product but I was unaware that the battery charger is not suitable for the New Zealand power supply and I was forced to purchase a battery charger here that was compatable. Your charger has an input of AC120V and output of DC12V and the New Zealand one has an Input 240V output 12V Could I suggest that purchasers in other countries be made aware of your power supply

Not Bad but Not the Best
by A Customer from Toronto, Ontario, Canada 

Pros: Nice design, large display, but looks aren't everything
Cons: charging options, battery consumption, price of accessories.
Review: After owning this transceiver for a couple years now there are a couple things which could be improved. The cigarette adapter does NOT charge the radio unlike the Yaesu VXA-220 which will power the radio AND charge the battery at the same time. This is a big setback. You start with a low battery and after flying you end with a low battery. Not good if you want to go to battery power for some reason. Unable to tell if the battery is fully charged and for some reason after 10+ hours on charge the low battery indicator comes on during transmit. Must buy Icom high priced accessories like the cigarette adapter which is 11 volts out. The Yaesu VXA-220 will run from any 12 volt cigarette adapter providing the polarity and plug size is compatible. NO 8.33 khz spacing. The Yaesu does 8.33khz. Replacement batteries for the Icom are expensive as well as the rapid charger. The Yaesu batteries are cheap and plentiful off of Ebay. Accessories for the Icom are EXPENSIVE! Money grab. Price out the accessories for the Icom and the Yaesu and you will see a big difference. Audio quality is not bad though the Yaesu boasts .700 milliwatts of audio power. The Icom only .500mw. So why don't we see more Yaesu VXA-220 for sale from flight shops? Price point. Profit margin is probably higher on the Icom. The Yaesu VXA-220 got good reviews, the Yaesu VXA-300 Pilot III did NOT.

by James from Lafayette, LA USA 
Pros: Good battery life, clear, performs
Cons: Should come with "drop in" battery charger
Review: This radio does everything it claims. Before I made a decision on a radio I read all of the reviews I could find. Everyone was satisfied with the radio but complained about the difficulty of learning to use it and the lack of instructions. Well, I don't usually take the time to write reviews but I have to say that the radio is very easy to figure out! If you are buying this radio for the application it is intended for (Flying), and you can't figure this out, quit flying please. GOOD RADIO, TOUGH, DOES THE JOB. USE EXTERNAL ANTENNA.

Terribly Disappointed
by Charley from Ontario, Canada 

Pros: It is reported to be an excellent product.
Cons: The instructions are hugely lacking in ...well...instructions!
Review: It is probably a good product, but it is difficult to imagine how any corporation could produce such an item and then fail to provide decent instructions for its operation. The manual seems to be "hit and miss" jumping illogically from one topic to another. I have to conclude that it is a good product, but now I have to find help in using it.

by Freeway's Brother from SSE of airport KROS, MN 

Pros: Good power and range, backlight stays on.
Cons: Tough to program if you are unfamiliar with Icom's menu system.
Review: My Brother is a CFI-I MEI and I live in the area of his flights, and I use this radio to talk with him all the time, I got the "sport" version from my parents for Christmas, which included a OPC-499 ADAPTER and an alkaline battery pack. It is complicated to program the memory channels, and the functions are difficult at times, but that is an "ICOM" thing. I have a IC-706 & IC-706MKIIG and their functions are difficult at times too.

by Michael Harwood, CFI from Wildwood FL USA

Difficult to program.
by Doug Rodrigues from Sparks, Nv. 

Pros: Good quality.
Cons: Instruction manual can only be classified as almost worthless..
Review: Four stars for the quality of the unit. Easy to enter one frequency to use, but still cannot figure out how to program into the memory banks or scan? Surely someone could have written instructions that make sense?! Following instructions exactly as written, the radio's memory banks still cannot be used. It's as thhough the instruction manual was written for a different model radio! If my life depended on it, I still cannot figure out how to use the memory banks!

Great Product
by Lars Slate from Chandler, AZ 

Pros: Perfect size even for large hands. Great readout.
Cons: If I had to pick one I wish it had more than 6 Chars to customize the memory names.
Review: After looking at Radios for weeks I decided on this one. Did not need the NAV as it would be rare to use a back up, most of us have a hand held gps, etc.

Read an shootout on radios and the ICOM and Sportys came out on top.

Sure the manual is vague but if you spend a little extra effort you can learn it very fast.

Very User Unfriendly
by A Customer from Florida 

Cons: Extremely difficult to program to scan a set of frequencies. Plus many others.
Review: It requires the pressing of too many buttons to accomplish a single task. No task is obvious from the labeling of the buttons. You need to have the user manual open to the proper page to be able to get it to do anything. And then, it still sometimes doesn't work because the user manual is incorrect or so vague as to be useless.

Review: The transciever is excellent but as a longtime technical writer/editor I am qualified to judge the instruction manual as the worst I have ever seen. Somebody needs to spend a few bucks to have it revised and sent as a supplement to customers who are stuck trying to figure out how this great transciever works. An on-line revision would help.

A: The cigarette lighter adapter for the IC-A6/A24 is different than the one used with the IC-A5/A23 and, very unfortunately, they are not compatible.  If you have the IC-A6 you will need either the genuine Icom CP-20 Cigarette Lighter Adapter or a third party CP-11L Cigarette Lighter Adapter for the IC-A6.  The IC-A23 uses the CP-12L adapter.

Will it be possible to charge the transceiver in europe (220V) without buying an aditional charging device?
A: You would either need to have an adapter to convert from the 110V to the 220V or get the wall charger at: Icom 220V Wall Charger for IC-A6 / IC-A24.

A: Yes, this transceiver would work with both the Sigtronics intercom and the Telex headset.

On Sunday, January 28, 2007 a customer asked:
what are the differences between the ICA24 and IC-A6 besides the VOR capability of the A24? any others? it seems to be a $50 difference, a spare battery would make them the same cost.
A: The only difference between the two transceivers is the VOR navigation feature. Otherwise, they are identical.
