And it’s built really, really rugged...and rain-resistant too...enough for the rigours of the aviation market. Just check out some of the interesting features of this new radio: Get your Communications heard.
5 watts of transmit power are built-in, enough to cover the largest of airports and get signals through and around thick walls and metal hangars. In addition 700mW of crisp, clear audio is provided by the built-in BTL amplifier which should make sure communications get heard. Easy to use, even for high turnover environments.
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. 200 Memory channels and 8 alphanumeric LCD characters per channel allow you to allocate specific users a channel on the radio. A low battery indication and beep alert are also standard features. Long lasting battery life, more than enough for shift work
The IC-A15 comes with a large Lithium-Ion battery pack (2000mAh) that can provide up to 18 hours of operation. Being Li-ion, it has superior weight-performance ratio. Compact, Rugged, lightweight
More power is housed in a smaller, lighter package. Carrying the lightweight IC-A15 on the belt will be less of a hassle for ground workers. The IC-A15 also meets strict military specifications (MIL STD MIL-810C/D/E/F) for ruggedness. The water resistant construction, equivalent to IPX4, provides reliable operation in wet conditions. Various charging options
The BC-179 desktop charger securely holds and charges the battery, even in bumpy conditions. The charger may be powered by an optional cigarette lighter cable, CP-22. An “AA” backup battery case, BP-261, is also available. The list price of the IC-A15 is £200.00 ex.VAT and is available from authorised Icom dealers.
