The handheld includes a large 2350mAh Li-ion battery, providing a long operating time. The easy-to-use interface and large 2.3-inch LCD display combine to provide stress-free programming and in-flight operation.
6 Watts High Radio Frequency (RF) Output Power For expanded communication coverage, output power has been increased to approximately 6 Watts typical (PEP)/ 1.8 Watts typical (carrier) compared to most Aviation Transceivers at 5 watts.
2.3 inch Large High Visibility LCD The 2.3 inch large, high-contrast and high visible LCD displays user-friendly, graphic screens and ensures good readability under direct sunlight. The operating frequency in large characters can be recognized at a glance. In addition, the night mode option enables easy viewing in low light conditions.
Easy-to-use Interface Often-used functions are assigned to the 10 keypad and you can directly access a desired function. The enlarged flat sheet keypad offers smooth and swift operation.
“Flip-Flop” Channel Recall The IC-A25C stores the last 10 channels used. You can easily recall those channels by using the directional keys, the channel knob and the 10 keypad. This is convenient for switching between several channels. In addition, you can freely edit (replace, delete, change order) the stored recall channels.
