Handheld air-band radio

New product

NC-55A is a portable air-band radio developed based on many years of experience of our company in developing GA avionics. It combines the best practices from previous models, complemented with features designed specifically for this construction. The basic radio is the ability to transmit and receive in AM, air-band, 118-134MHz and receiving in FM 2m - 136-174MHz (eg on NAVCOMM's network frequencies) as well as built-in two-place intercom and advanced noise reduction system -ANL. Additional options are VOR and Bluetooth.

The NC-55A has successfully passed all necessary tests for aeronautical transceivers operated in the European Union as confirmed by the Institute of Telecommunications in Warsaw (Notified Body No. 1471).

More info

Radio has a 5 watt (ERP) transmitter which, together with a well-tuned antenna ensures clear communication over long distances. By using a standard antenna socket BNC is possible to connect an external antenna systems for increased range.

The transceiver enables voice communication in COM band (118.000 - 136.975MHz), of storing up to 100 channels with a description of monitoring two frequencies at the same time, work in semi-duplex mode, simultaneous broadcasting on the frequency of COM and NAV band reception, and scan the whole band, or selected channels. NC-55A has a built-in advanced noise reduction circuitry ANL and adjustment of cut-off noise squelch. It should also pay attention to the number of solutions to facilitate operation, eg. The quick memorization of the currently selected frequency, fast switching between two selected channels, LCD backlight and keypad, a change of the transmitter, lock all, except for the button backlight and PTT keys, repeat function key at the PTT, or quick access to the frequency of rescue 121,5MHz.

The novelty offered by the model NC-55A is integrated FM receiver operating in the band of 2 meters. The listening channels from 136-174MHz range significantly expands the area of operation of this radio enabling eg. Working with network users NAVCOMM at VHF – 157,9625, 162,7500 MHz  channels. This feature is compatible with the dual-mode watch so that it is possible to conduct a parallel watch on channel network NAVCOMM and band air. In addition, when you turn DUPLEX is possible to simultaneously transmit in the band of air AM and FM reception. It is currently the only radio on the market having the functionality.

You can program for listening to a total of 16 different FM frequency range of 136-174MHz. The service programming FM channels is performed on request by the service company NAVCOMM.

Model NC-55A is also available as NC-55AV having a built-in  VOR receiver (DVOR) making it possible to receive the signals from the angle of radio navigation systems transmitting in the band 108.000 - 117.975MHz, and imaging bearing to or from a beacon in the form of a numerical value of the range 0- 359 °, indicating the current deviation of the bearing if you enable CDI (Course deviation Indicator). Moreover mode CDI has an automatic centering ratio deviation which significantly speeds up the service. NC-55AV also enables scanning band NAV to find in range transmitters VOR.

Model NC-55A is supplied as standard with the included removable Lithium-Polymer battery with a capacity of 1700m. Load cells is done by using the supplied charging cradle supplied with 12V. The set includes the power adapter. The software model NC-55AVB allows you to work in a power saving mode.

NC-55A have a double socket S, which through the use of optional adapter allow you to connect to the radio handset classic airplane (one or two pairs), or a portable intercom.

The NC-55AB version also has built-in Bluetooth module allows its integration with wireless headsets that support the standard, for example. NAVCOMM NC-1000BT / ANR.

NC-55A also has a built-in intercom allows plugging two pairs of headphones airports (requires an adapter) and voice communication between the two crew members.

Internal radio frame is made of aluminum alloy which ensures an increased resistance to mechanical damage radio. Together with the radio station in a box we find the clip for mounting the radio to your belt.
