S.P. Radio Introduces New Low-Cost, High-Quality Compact Radiotelephone

—Free Literature Offered— S.P. Radio A/S has just introduced a new VHF radiotelephone for the marine industry called the Sailor RT2048.

The VHF Sailor RT2048 is a simplex/ semi-duplex station for shipto- ship/ship-to-shore communication.

It is equipped with all 55 international maritime VHF channels, U.S. channels, 10 private channels, scanning facilities, quick channel 16, dual watch, 25-watt output power, and built-in seacall as an option.

Due to the unique construction of its transmitter and heat sink, the RT2048 is able to operate with a continuous output power of 25 watts on all possible channels in the frequency range 154.40-163.75 MHz.

The unit also offers a choice of 30 additional private channels or scanning facilities.

The Sailor RT2048 is prepared for connection to 12V DC or 24V DC (by means of a Sailor N420 Power Supply). The set has an extremely low power consumption. In the standby mode, the power consumption is less than 0.1 a.

The new compact state-of-the-art VHF is fully transistorized and equipped with a synthesizer and microprocessor.

Its compact cabinet houses both transmitter, receiver and a large, powerful 6-watt loudspeaker, which reproduces the signal loudly and clearly—even at great distances. Furthermore, the built-in audio amplifier is capable of delivering an additional 6 watts into an external loudspeaker.

And although the Sailor RT2048 is compact (height-104 mm; width- 228 mm; and depth-169 mm), it is easy to service, since the set consists of four easily replaceable modules.

This high-quality, low-priced unit is easy to operate, even in bad weather, due to a button for continuous turnstyle operation of squelch and AF levels. All controls are easily accessible on the front plate with pushbutton keyboard, LED display and nighttime illumination.
