Easy to use while flying Simple one-handed operation is
the most essential feature of the IC-A24. 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 backlit, and so is the keypad. The light
stays on until you turn it off – a very handy feature
for flying at night.
"Flip-flop" channel recall
The IC-A24 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
The IC-A24 has VOR navigation functions. The DVOR
mode shows the radial to or from a VOR
station and the CDI mode shows the course deviation
to/from a VOR station. You can also input your intended
radial to/from the VOR station and show the course
deviation on the display. In the USA version, the duplex
operation allows you to call a COM channel, while you
are using VOR navigation.
