ICOM IC-A120E Airband Mobile Radio

Stock Level: LOW STOCK $1,540.00

High Visibility, Simple Operation

High Visibility, Simple Operation

The full dot-matrix LCD allows for high visibility and clearly shows alphanumeric characters and icons. Programming memory channels and other radio settings can be simply made from the front panel by radio users. These customizing functions can also be restricted, depending on the radio settings.

Active Noise Cancelling (ANC)

The newly added built-in ANC reduces background noise in the received and transmitting signals. This function is effective in extremely noisy airport environments full of aircraft noise. The automatic noise limiter (ANL)* reduces pulse-type noise such as engine ignition.

* The ANL and ANC functions cannot be used at the same time.

Optional Bluetooth Headset Connectivity

With the optional UT-133A Bluetooth® unit, the IC-A120E can be used with a third-party wireless Bluetooth® headset. Also, using the optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset, the side tone function is available.

IP54 Dust-Protection and Water Resistance

The IC-A120E has IP54 dust-protection and water resistance. This construction allows for use in open-air vehicles.

Dualwatch and ON-Hook Scan Functions

The dualwatch function checks the priority and operating channels alternatively. The ON-Hook scan function automatically starts scanning when the hand microphone is hooked on the microphone hanger. When you take the microphone OFF hook, the scanning stops at the priority channel or displayed channel (according to the pre- programming).

Side Tone Function

When using a third-party headset with the optional OPC-871A headset adapter, the side tone function allows you to monitor your own transmitted voice via the con- nected headset. Even when using a hand microphone, your voice can be monitored from the headset.

Optional Speaker-Microphone, HM-217

Listen to received audio through the HM-217’s built-in speaker. From the speaker- microphone’s front panel, access up/down buttons and two programmable buttons (P1/P2) which can be used as a shortcut to activate frequently used functions.
