ICOM IC-A15 VHF Air Band Handheld Radio
Icom IC-A1527 February 2018I am very happy with the radio. Has reasonable range with supplied aerial. Will get very good range when connected to base antenna. Seems a very tough robust unit. Was recommended to me by other club members.
Great bang for the buck!By: Paul OBrien on 1 October 2016The quality of the unit is very good as was the price. It works just as it should, a decent size battery good sound quality that can be heard over background noise.
