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 that’ll cut through cabin or tarmac noise.
* Internal speaker only
Full 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
Compact, light weight and rugged body
The IC-A14/S 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
Large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack
With the 2000mAh large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-232N, the
IC-A14/S 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
