ITT Mackay Marine Introduces
Marine Radio Console For
Shipboard Or Fixed-Station Use
A marine radio communications console was recently announced in Raleigh, N.C., by ITT
Mackay Marine, a division of International
Telephone and Telegraph Corporation.
The MRU-35A SSB/CW console provides a complete high-frequency radiotelephone and radiotelegraph communication facility suitable for shipboard or fixed-station use.
The equipment features synthesized fre- quency control which, provides 220,000 highly stable transmitting frequencies between 2.0
MHz and 24.0 MHz. On all authorized frequen- cies in this range, it meets F.C.C. requirements for shipboard or land-maritime applications.
The MRU-35A transmitter combines an ad- vanced solid-state synthesized exciter with a modern, manually tuned linear amplifier.

Dearborn-Storm To Concentrate
On Offshore Drilling Industry —Computer Leasing To Be Sold
Dearborn-Storm Corporation has announced that an agreement in principle has been reached with a group of private investors in Chicago for the sale of Dearborn's portfolio of IBM
System 360 computers for $17 million in cash payable at the closing.
This transaction, to be reflected in fiscal 1973, will result in a loss on disposal of the computer portfolio, including phase-out costs, of approximately $9.0 million ($3.15 per share), net of applicable tax benefits of approximately $4.2 million.
Arthur Weiss, chairman of the board of di- rectors, stated that "divestiture of our interests in the computer leasing business now allows us to concentrate all of our management efforts and financial resources on our primary busi- ness, which is servicing the worldwide needs of the offshore petroleum industry."
Reflecting this concentration of Dearborn's interests in servicing the offshore petroleum industry, Dearborn's board of directors ap- proved a change of the corporate name to
Storm Drilling & Marine, Inc., subject to ap- proval by the stockholders at the annual meet- ing to be held in Houston, Texas, on April 9, 1974. The chairman also stated that proceeds from the sale of the computer portfolio would be used to further expand the company's off- shore service capabilities.
Dearborn currently has under construction drilling rigs and marine service vessels with an aggregate cost of approximately $75 million.
