IC-A5 Specifications

H.M.S. Communications, Inc.

Icom IC-A5 (Com Only)

IC-A5ICOM is the name pilots have come to know and trust. Fly the airwaves with the latest ICOM airband transceiver! Measuring only 2 9/32(W) X 4 7/32(H) X 1 1/8(D) in., it is nearly half the size of the IC-A3, and another third as small as the IC-A21. Yet, it is every inch an ICOM, chock full of the useful features you've come to rely on. Its palm size is very convenient for carrying on your belt with the supplied belt clip. The IC-A5 has water resistant construction, equivalent to JIS-4 grade, which allows safe operation in rainy conditions.

Well labeled and well spaced keys are easy to operate, even while wearing gloves. The back mounted battery puts the weight of the unit in your palm, allowing a comfortable grip. The wide and large LCD lets you see every readout at a glance.

Volume and channel selection can be controlled by the rotary selector on the top panel, or Up/Down switches on the front. You can change the assignment at your convenience. The volume level and channel number are displayed during adjustment.

Received conversation can be recorded and played back with the built-in voice recorder. Recorded contents can be transmitted and kept even with power off, or when the battery is discharged.
