Small package yet LOUD audio
The VXA-220 has 700 mW of receiver audio. A great deal of effort was made to give you the best sounding audio from a compact portable.
The VXA-220 is built inside a rugged Aluminium case, carefully sealed to protect against water ingress. Built to survive immersion in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of three feet, VXA-220 can keep you communicating even if it gets wet due to severe weather or unforeseen water landings.
The VXA-220 can receive all 10 NOAA weather broadcast frequencies. The Automatic Active Weather Channel Locator (a Vertex Standard exclusive) automatically scans for active NOAA weather stations in your area when WX band is selected.
The VX-220 includes a special feature that sounds an alarm when the special “Severe Weather” alert tone is received from a weather broadcast station. This can warn you of potentially hazardous flying conditions.
