BC Link 2.0 Two-Way Radio
The BC Link 2.0 is the second generation of Backcountry Access's two-way radio designed specifically for backcountry touring, and it comes with twice the wattage for a better performance at the recommended distance of 6 miles and the maximum distance of 40 miles (both with line of sight). The remote-friendly Smart Mic has glove-friendly controls for on-and-off, volume, battery indicator, channel selection, and push-to-talk so you don't have to find the base unit packed inside your backpack to change settings. BCA designed the Smart Mic to shed snow so it never ices up or packs down with snow. The BC Link 2.0 is compatible with BCA's Float Avalanche Airbag and Stash Backpacks.

- Q & A
Might have got a lemon
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Use this radio for 2 days. Day 3 I noticed it was not turning on and just left it in my pack assuming the battery was dead. Got back at the end of the day and found that the small plastic piece where it connects to the main body of the radio had broken and was only being held by the screw and was not making good contact. Poor design in my opinion as this radio was only in my pack and I would not have expected anything to break. I may try another one of these, if not, I will be picking up one of the originals.
A beautiful successor!

Works just as great if not better than the first! Love bca and their radios are a great fit to your avy gear!

This is certainly an improvement over the first version! The redesigned mic sheds snow and makes communicating with your partners in the backcountry so easy. With its improved long range, communication from the top of a run to your partner further down is crystal clear and easy. Charge time is short and usues a micro usb so nothing weird there. I strongly recommend for anyone skiing the backcountry! The puch to talk botton is better now, and its easy to adjust volume or which channel you are on all with the part that is strapped to your backpck.
