Dual Automatic


Fully automatic

Compare DAL222 to other loran receivers.

Its uncluttered panel tells the story: no gain controls, no attenuators or level meters, no drift controls, no AFC or interference reducer switches. It's fully automatic.

Faster, easier, more accurate

Just turn it on and select the two desired stations. Signal acquisition, sweep synchronization, gain adjustments, noise filtering.. .all operations required for two LOP readouts are done automatically. Initial acquisition time for both LOP's is about 20 seconds. Each is subsequently upgraded every 31/2 seconds.

The U.S. Coast Guard recently announced that it would keep Loran A stations operating.

For good reasons. No other system offers such dependable navigation at such modest equipment costs.
