Simrad Introduces New Microcomputer-Controlled Loran C Navigator

A highly sophisticated, microcomputer- controlled Loran C from Simrad is said to take the time and work out of blue-water navigation.

The Simrad/Taiyo model TL-856 provides the latest stateof- the-art features for accurate and economical navigation. Up to 10 different waypoints can be programmed, and course and distance can be called up between present position and any of the waypoints.

Present location can be displayed as Loran C coordinates or Lat/Long.

Ground speed, time to destination, and cross track error also are instantly available at any time. Acquisition and tracking of master and all secondaries in the selected chain is fully automatic.

High performance is maintained in severe interference areas by use of four tunable and two internally preset notch filters. Various alarm indicators and selftest functions to check the microprocessor and displays also are built in.

Model TL-856 utilizes 12-, 24-, or 32-volt dc. Height is 6% inches, width 12% inches, and depth is 12% inches. It is designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the U.S. Coast Guard endorsed RTCM Minimum P e r f o r m a n ce Standard (MPS).
