Icom’s IC-A120E ground-based panel-mount vehicle airband radio is the successor to the best selling IC-A110EURO airband transceiver. Aimed at airport ground crew vehicles, this new model features both 8.33kHz and 25kHz channel spacing, plus the latest noise cancelling and Bluetooth technology.
The IC-A120 has 200 memory channels to store often used frequencies with 12-character channel name. With a high contrast dot matrix display, operating channels can be selected quickly and recognized easily. You can instantly program memory channels without requiring PC programming.
Built-in active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% of the received signal and 30% in the transmitted signal. In addition, The ANL (Automatic Noise Limiter) reduces pulse-type noise such as an engine ignition. These functions are effective in extremely noisy airport environments full of aircraft noise.
When the optional UT-133 Bluetooth unit is installed, the IC-A120 can be used with a third-party wireless Bluetooth headset. When used the optional VS-3 Bluetooth headset, the side tone function is available for monitoring own transmitted voice.
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 connected headset. Even when using a hand microphone, your voice can be monitored from the headset.
The IC-A120 has IP54 dust-protection and water resistance, allowing it to be used in wet and dusty conditions.
You can pull the speaker-microphone close to your ear to listen to received voice in noisy environments. The programmable buttons (P1/P2) on the front panel can be used as a shortcut to activate frequently used functions.
The ON-Hook scan function automatically starts scanning when the hand microphone is hooked on the microphone hanger. The ON-Hook dualwatch function checks the priority and operating channels alternatively while ON-Hook. When you take the microphone OFF-Hook, the scanning stops at the priority channel or displayed channel, according to the pre-programming.
