Raytheon Service Company re- cently published a brochure de- scribing their new Auto-Alarm
Receiver / Keyer. The Raytheon
Auto-Alarm, Model RAY-1AAR/
K is a solid-state rackmountable unit designed to monitor the 500- kHz international radiotelegraph distress frequency band and ac- tuate a continuous audible alarm upon detection of a distress sig- nal.
The RAY-1AAR/K contains several unique design features, including automatic gain control (AGC) system for optimum re- ceiver sensitivity, precise recog- nition of valid distress signals, and type approval in conformance with FCC 1981 timing regula- tions, Part 83.554.
The signal keyer automatically "keys" radiotelegraph transmit- ters with the International Ra- diotelegraph Alarm signal. The 12-volt d-c power source required to operate the Signal Keyer is normally supplied by the radio- room emergency battery supply.
The Auto-Alarm is presently in- stalled in Solas Communication
Consoles onboard a number of ships.

Marin Marine Sewage Systems...on the best of ships for
J V the best of reasons! MTS ARGONAUT
Like your ship, the well-known vessels shown here were required to install systems for treating sewage while in port and in coastal waters. Like you, their owners did not wish to lay over for extensive refitting. Nor did they want to com- mit valuable crew time to intricate maintenance procedures.
Their choice was obvious.
Marland makes physical/ chemical systems for vessels of all sizes. Rated as U.S. Coast
Guard Type II Marine Sanita- tion Devices, Marland's Sani-
Systems® are the only such systems made in America to have gained I.M.C.O. certifi- cations Compact, modular and highly adaptable to exist- ing shipboard conditions,
Sani-systems are installed in minimum time. They start up instantly when needed and close down with the flick of a switch.
Isn't your choice obvious?
