New Watch Receiver Announced By DEBEG— Literature Available

DEBEG Marine, Inc., Tewksbury, Mass., has announced availability of its new Model 2340 watch receiver. The receiver was designed to conform to SOLAS regulations and the requirement that all vessels over 300 gross tons will be equipped with a watch receiver by March 31, 1981. According to the company the unit has been successfully proven on hundreds of oceangoing vessels, having already met all of the required European standards. FCC approval is pending.

The DEBEG 2340 RT watch receiver auto alarm provides permanent watch-keeping on the international distress frequency, 2,182 kHz. Three operational modes are push button selectable. When in mute mode, the receiver is in operation but AF signals are inaudible. In the 2-tone filter mode, only the 1,300 Hz and/or 2,200 Hz are audible. In the normal mode, all AF signals are audible.

In the mute mode, the receiver will automatically switch over to normal on reception of the international r a d i o t e l e p h o ne alarm signal, the navigational warning signal, or the EPIRB signal. The automatic switchover from mute or 2-tone filter modes with external signaling is achieved by special logic selector circuits. An optional clock is available to switch from mute mode to normal during the silence periods.
