FM Facsimile Recorders
Alden Electronic & Impulse
Recording Equipment Co., Inc. announces the introduction of a line of FM facsimile recorders designed for use aboard ships or wherever facsimile graphics via
FM circuits are desired.
The recorders are available in both lO^-inch and 18-inch-wide versions. Both versions are pro- vided with shock mounts for mo- bile or shipboard use.
Both recorders operate from
FM transmissions over telephone lines or radio circuits with a built-in frequency shift converter for the international F4 standard (1500 Hz black, 2300 Hz white).
The recorders are compatible with all HF general communications receivers and incorporate wink- ing light monitors to simplify receiver tuning.
The recorders use Alfax elec- trosensitive recording paper to provide clean, crisp, odorless re- cordings which are permanent, will not smudge, fade or darken.
A four-page brochure describ- ing the Alden 1100 and 1800 Se- ries of FM Facsimile Recorders is available free by writing to
