700mW loud audio
Because air band radios are usually operated in high-noise environments, it is essential for the radio to provide loud and clear audio. The IC-A15/S series employs a BTL amplifier that doubles the audio output, offering loud and clear audio that’ll cut through cabin or tarmac noise. (* Internal speaker only)
Full keypad type or Simple keypad type
The IC-A15 full keypad type allows you to input the channel or frequency directly and has an exclusive button for the 121.5MHz emergency channel. The IC-A15S simple eypad type provides simpler operation with a minimum of buttons that is suitable for ground crews.
Compact, light weight and rugged body
The IC-A15 series is compact (only 120mm tall) and light weight (approx. 350g including antenna and BP-232N). The water resistant construction, equivalent to IPX4, provides reliable operation in wet conditions.
Large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack
With the 2000mAh large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-232N, the IC-A15/S series provides stable output power and 18 hours long (approx.) operating time.
200 channels with memory banks
A total of 200 memory channels can be named with an 8-character channel name for easy recognition. For fast and simple operation, these channels can be grouped into 10 memory banks.
