New Raytheon SSB Is Microprocessor Controlled —Literature Available
Raytheon Marine Company is offering free literature describing its newly introduced 150-watt microprocessor- controlled SSB radiotelephone for commercial vessels of all types. Raytheon's RAY-1285 SSB Marine Radiotelephone is preprogrammed for all of the 192 ITU channels, and provides memory capability for 44 user-programmed channels or frequencies.
The user-oriented RAY-1285 transceiver provides digital-display monitoring and keyboard channel/frequency and mode selection.
LCD readout on a backlit panel shows channel/frequency selected and operating condition. The unit's remote antenna-coupler provides fully automatic tuning. Last station used is automatically called up when the unit is turned on.
In addition to ready coverage of worldwide marine-band channels and frequencies, the fully synthesized RAY-1285 provides a number of important additional features.
It has a sea-watch automatic scanning mode which allows the operator to monitor up to 10 selected channels or frequencies, in- eluding the International Emergency Frequency, 2182 kHz. Quickselect of the International Emergency Frequency is available with a built-in, two-tone distress alarm.
A unique "force-transmit" control will provide communication even under emergency broken-antenna conditions.
The compact RAY-1285 transceiver operates on 12 Vdc. For optional manual tuning, the RAY- 1285 transmits (1.6 to 25.999 MHz) and receives (100 kHz to 30 MHz) in fast or slow steps. Selectable modulation modes available are: standard SSB (AJ3), modified SSB (A3A) and AM compatible (A3H).
Push-button listening to other vessel transmissions is available as well as a push-to-talk telephone handset.
The RAY-1285 transceiver is supplied with antenna coupler, mounting hardware, interconnecting cables, and complete installation instructions. It meets FCC requirements and has passed Raytheon's tough environmental tests for shock, vibration, temperature extremes, and resistance to corrosion and fungus. Manufacturer's suggested retail price is $5,995.
