IC-A120B Mobile VHF Airband Transciever Base Station

The IC-A120 Air Band VHF Transceiver features Active Noise Cancelling and Bluetooth capabilities. 

The built-in noise cancelling is ideal in noisy airport environments while the  automatic noise limiter reduces pulse-type noise. 

The optional UT-133 Bluetooth module can be added for connecting a wireless Bluetooth headset. 

The IC-A120 is available as a mobile transceiver and as a base station transceiver.

Part Number: IC-A120B 

  • Dot-matrix LCD display is easy to read with crisp, clear text (displays alphanumeric characters and icons)
  • Memory channels and other radio settings can programmed from the front panel (customizing functions can be restricted as needed, depending on the radio settings); this unit provides 200 memory channels with 12-character channel names and 8.33 kHz and 25 kHz channel spacing
  • Built-in Active Noise Canceling (ANC) reduces background noise in the received and transmitted signals; the automatic noise limiter (ANL) reduces pulse-type noise such as engine ignition (ANL and ANC functions cannot be used at the same time)
  • IP54 dust-protection and water resistant construction allows the IC-A120 to be used in open-air vehicles
  • ON-Hook scan function automatically starts scanning when the hand microphone is hooked on the microphone hanger; the ON-Hook dualwatch feature checks the priority and operating channels alternatively while ON-Hook; when the microphone is taken OFF hook, scanning stops at the priority channel or the displayed channel
  • Provides optional Bluetooth headset connectivity when the UT-133 Bluetooth unit is added; this allows a third-party wireless Bluetooth headsets to be used with the IC-A120 (when using an optional VS-3 Bluetooth headset the side tone function becomes available)
  • Third-party headsets can be used with the optional OPC-871A headset adapter; when configured this way, the user can use the side tone function to monitor his or her own transmitted voice via the connected headseteven when using a hand microphone
  • Optional HM-217 speaker-microphone allows the user to listen to received audio through the HM-217s built in speaker; the speaker-microphone features up/down buttons as well as two programmable P1/P2 buttons that serve as a shortcut for activating frequently used functions
  • Compatible with 12- and 24- volt systems
  • 36W (PEP) RF output power
  • Dualwatch and priority scan functions
  • Power on password protection
  • PC programming capability
  • CI-V Commands for external control
  • VE-PG3 RoIP gateway for interconnect with other radio devices
  • Accessories include hand microphone (HM-216), DC power cable, microphone hanger kit, mounting bracket kit, and fuses
