Alden Introduces New Whip Antenna For Radiofax — Literature Available

Literature Available Alden Electronics, Inc. of Westboro, Mass., has introduced the Alden/ Metz Marinefax HF antenna for use with its popular line of Marinefax weather chart recorders.

The Alden/Metz antenna is a compact passive unit designed spe- cifically for the reception of radiofacsimile transmissions. It provides an alternative to long wire and large passive whip antennas.

Reception range tests performed by Alden have verified that the antenna's performance is equal to existing long wire and active antennas.

It is also suited for use as an SWL antenna.

The Alden/Metz antenna is a slim, stainless-steel 54-inch whip mounted to a silver-plated post attached to a lV2-inch-diameter steel coil. It requires no ground radials, nor is there any chance of internal breakage found with fiberglass, antennas.

The new antenna is compatible with all models of the Alden Marinefax recorders, including the Marinefax V, which features unique dual memories for storage of worldwide radio frequencies, plus storage of up to 10 frequencies for single button recall.
