New Radiotelephone Available From Apelco

A new low-cost all-channel VHF/FM radiotelephone is now available from Apelco.

The 25-watt AF-55 offers 55 transmit, 76 receive and 4 weather channels, to cover the entire VHF worldwide marine band with no need for adding or changing crystals.

Push buttons for emergency channel 16, as well as weather channels, enable the operator to switch to the channel of his choice then return quickly to check the weather or monitor channel 16.

Other features include a durable aluminum housing, an easyto- read LED digital display of channel numbers, circuits for both U.S. and international operation, and circuits to reject interference from busy in-harbor radio services of TV, taxi, police and fire.

The AF-55 also offers such features as an adjustable quickrelease mounting yoke for theftproof installations, a radio frequency indicator light to show when RF power is being transmitted to the antenna, and a selectable one-watt output for harbor use. List price is $599.

Additional information and specifications are available from Stanley Clark, Apelco Marine Electronics, 676 Island Pond Road, Manchester, N.H. 03103.
