When it comes to choosing an air-band transceiver there is only one worth considering. The VX-150 transceivers by Vertex Standard are the result of over 40 years of engineering experience in communications and handheld transceiver design.
The VXA-150 is the world's only air-band transceivers that are rugged enough to pass the stringent MIL-STD 810D and E testing. The durable high impact housing and unique clamshell chassis assures reliable performance even under the most adverse operating conditions. Vertex Standards extensive rubber gasketing system around the housing seams, keypad, knobs, microphone jack, and speaker grille insures that the VXA-150 sets a new standard for water resistance among air-band transceivers available today!
Tough and rugged aren't the 150's only features. It also boasts styling and functions never seen before in an avionics handheld. It's loud, clear audio, backlit keypad and display, high contrast 8 character alpha-numeric display and built-in sidetone are everything that today's private pilot would want in a backup transceiver. Comes supplied with Nicad Battery, Wall Charger, Headset Adapter, Belt Clip and Flexible Antenna.
