IC-A15 Ground to Air Two Way Handheld Radio (Discontinued)

The IC-A15 Air band handheld transceiver is aimed at ground crew who work in airports and airfields. Designed for ground to air communications, this model is compact, robust and water-resistant making it ideal for outside workers. The minimal number of buttons provides simple control and the 700mW of audio with built-in BTL amplifier makes sure that communications get heard.

Simple to use ground to air radio
The IC-A15 is ideal for ground crews who work in airports and airfields. The IC-A15 is really easy to operate and ideal for large companies where the radio may be used by shift workers. The full-featured keypad allows direct input of channels and frequencies.

700mW loud audio with built-in BTL amplifier
In high-noise environments, it is essential for radio equipment to provide loud and clear audio. The IC-A15 employs a built-in BTL audio amplifier that doubles the audio output. As a result, it delivers 700mW of loud and clear audio.

Large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack
With the 2000mAh large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-232N, the IC-A15 provides stable output power and approximately 18 hours of operating time, more than enough to cover a shift.

The BP-261 battery case will take 6 AA (LR6) alkaline cells for convenient battery backup.

Compact, water resistant, rugged body
The IC-A15 is compact (120mm in height) and light weight (approximate 350g with BP-232N and antenna). The aluminium die-cast chassis is the basis for this rugged construction, allowing long-life usage in a range of challenging environments. The IC-A15 series is designed to pass the MIL-STD-810 environmental tests and the IPX4 water resistant rating. The water resistant construction provides reliable operation in wet conditions.

Alphanumeric LCD
An 8-character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD is employed to make a variety of information visually recognizable immediately. The backlit LCD is incorporated which is useful for night time operation.

BC-179 holder type charger
The BC-179 is a light weight cradle style battery charger that allows you to charge the radio in limited spaces such as a vehicle. The charger securely holds and charges the radio, even in bumpy conditions. The optional CP-22 is required to use the BC-179 in a vehicle.

Side Tone function
The side tone function allows you to hear your own voice via a headset. By monitoring your own voice, this function eliminates unnecessary shouting on a noisy runway. Side tone level is adjustable from the radio.
* Optional OPC-499 headset adapter cable and third party aviation headset are required.
