VHF Air Band Transceiver
Icom’s A120E air band mobile introduces two new features: Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) and Bluetooth® capabilities. The newly added built-in ANC reduces background noise and is effective in extremely noisy airport environments. The automatic noise limiter (ANL) reduces pulse-type noise such as engine ignition. Insert the optional UT-133 Bluetooth® unit and connect a third-party wireless Bluetooth® headset.
High Visibility, Simple Operation
The full dot-matrix LCD allows for high visibility and clearly shows alphanumeric characters and icons. Programming memory channels and other radio settings can be simply made from the front panel by radio users. These customizing functions can also be restricted, depending on the radio settings.
Optional Bluetooth® Headset Connectivity
With the optional UT-133A Bluetooth® unit, the IC-A120E can be used with a third-party wireless Bluetooth® headset. Also, using the optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset, the side tone function is available.
Active Noise Cancelling (ANC)
The newly added built-in ANC reduces background noise in the received and transmitting signals. This function is effective in extremely noisy airport environments full of aircraft noise. The automatic noise limiter (ANL)* reduces pulse-type noise such as engine ignition.
* The ANL and ANC functions cannot be used at the same time.
IP54 Dust-Protection and Water Resistance
The IC-A120E has IP54 dust-protection and water resistance. This construction allows for use in open-air vehicles.
Dualwatch and ON-Hook Scan Functions
The dualwatch function checks the priority and operating channels alternatively. The ON-Hook scan function automatically starts scanning when the hand microphone is hooked on the microphone hanger. When you take the microphone OFF hook, the scanning stops at the priority channel or displayed channel (according to the pre- programming).
Side Tone Function
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 con- nected headset. Even when using a hand microphone, your voice can be monitored from the headset.
