New Loran C Unit Introduced By SI-TEX —Literature Available

The new SI-TEX/KODEN 757, introduced by SI-TEX, automatically acquires and tracks master transmitting station and all usable secondaries of any Loran C chain.

Time Differences (TDs) of any two secondaries can be displayed simultaneously. Operation is completely silent. Four automatic or manually variable notch filters eliminate interference.

Microprocessor and large-scale integration (LSI) design makes for smaller size and greater reliability.

The small size and vertical design of the 5-inch by 7- inch by 10-inch receiver make it ideal for both the center console of the overcrowded wheelhouse of larger boats.

Internal memory circuits feature "store" and "recall" modes.

Position memory stores and recalls eight separate Loran C positions.

"Always on" memory retains chain number, secondary stations and all eight memories even after receiver is turned off.

"ComPuNav" steering feature of the 757 computes and guides helmsman along a course to any one of eight preprogrammed waypoints/ destinations. It also indicates time and distance to get there. Elapsed time can also be displayed. Planned options include latitude/longitude readout.
