RCA Adds Radiotelephone To Marine Equipment Line —Literature Available

RCA Service Company has announced the introduction of a new VHF/FM radiotelephone to its marine equipment line. The Model 8080 is a fully synthesized marine radiotelephone that has been designed specifically to meet the needs of the most demanding marine environment, according to Edward B. Campbell, manager, Industrial E l e c t r o n i c S e r v i c es Marketing, RCA Service Company.

"It combines keyboard channel selection with automatic scanning and covers all U.S. and International channels," Mr. Campbell said.

A key feature of the unit is the programmable microprocessor that allows up to 20 channels to be automatically or manually scanned for traffic in particular situations, such as negotiating harbors patrolled by Vessel Traffic Systems. Other features include 25-watt transmitter output capability and a receiver design that assures crisp signals even in congested harbors.

"The 8080 is U.S.-built with integrated circuit technology and corrosion-resistant materials to withstand the most rugged marine conditions," Mr. Campbell said. "The unit is ideal for commercial f i s h i n g v e s s e l s , workboats, large yachts, and deepsea vessels."
