Icom Hand Held Radio's

It’s taken a while but Navboys are very proud to have been appointed resellers of Icom hand held, vehicle and aircraft radios. Icom recognised our unique and focused support for the gliding community. We in turn realise that Icom is the best of the breed when it comes to air band comms on the ground and in the air.


We use our hand held and vehicle radios daily and really need to depend on them so that is why we choose Icom.

They are now even better value as you will receive a free voucher to spend in our  web shop with every purchase of an Icom IC-A6E Sports or Pro Pack! (Web vouchers are valid on future purchases before the 31st December 2017on the Navboys.com website)

The Icom A6E hand held is the radio of choice for keeping in touch with what’s happening whilst on the ground. Available in Sports and Pro pack versions, these handy radio’s are robust, easy to use and meet the new 8.33 requirements. You can even add the radio to your claim for a 20% CAA rebate.

This new version of the popular IC-A6E is identical to its predecessor but now features 5W output power and 25kHz/8.33kHz dual channel spacing.

Large alphanumeric LCD

An easy to read a 6-character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD displays a variety of information clearly. Both the display and keypad are backlit, which is a very useful feature for use at night time.

25kHz/8.33kHz dual channel spacing

In addition to the widely used 25kHz channel spacing the IC-A6E is also compatible with 8.33kHz channel spacing.

Channel recall function

The new channel recall function automatically memorizes the last 10 used channels. You can easily recall those channels by pushing the recall buttons on the front panel. This makes it very convenient for switching between several channels at a time, such as start and team frequency.

Simultaneous operation and charge from external power source

The IC-A6E has an external DC power jack that allows operation with the optional CP-20 cigarette lighter cable with DC-DC converter. This means that a battery pack can be simultaneously charged during operation.

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.
