RCA Adds Radiotelephone
To Marine Equipment Line —Literature Available
RCA Service Company has an- nounced the introduction of a new
VHF/FM radiotelephone to its marine equipment line. The Model 8080 is a fully synthesized ma- rine radiotelephone that has been designed specifically to meet the needs of the most demanding ma- rine environment, according to
Edward B. Campbell, manager,
Industrial Electronic Services
Marketing, RCA Service Compa- ny. "It combines keyboard chan- nel selection with automatic scan- ning and covers all U.S. and In- ternational channels," Mr. Camp- bell 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 Traf- fic Systems. Other features in- clude 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 ma- rine conditions," Mr. Campbell said. "The unit is ideal for com- mercial fishing vessels, work- boats, large yachts, and deepsea vessels."
