|The A16B with Bluetooth is built tough and rugged like all Icom radios. It is the smallest radio with the loudest audio on the market, featuring 1500 mW of powerful clear audio. Packed with 6 watts of power for longer range, the A16 is also waterproof to IP67 standards. The A16 is the ideal flight companion for the student pilot, for ground crew with one hand operation on the flight line, or as a back up in your ditch bag. Its 2400mAh Li-ion battery lasts over 17 hours, and the radio includes a sit-in rapid charger.|
