Naval Electronics, Inc., Tampa,
Fla., has recently introduced the
HTS-1 "audio booster" amplified speaker. It is a portable speaker with a powerful amplifier built in, boosting receiver sound by a factor of 10 times, according to the compa- ny. The HTS-1 amplified speaker is normally powered by four "AA" batteries but can also be powered by internal rechargeable Nickel-Cad- mium batteries, as it has a built-in charger. The HTS-1 can operate from a 12-volt source such as a ciga- rette lighter socket, or any DC source from 6-15 vDC.
The HTS-1 incorporates a lOdb audio amplifier and a 3.5-inch oval speaker. It also features a special battery saver circuit which shuts-off the audio amplifier automatically (producing a battery drain of less than 1 milli-amp) if your HT is squelched more than 10 seconds.
The amp turns on the instant the channel becomes active again. An
LED indicates the battery saver sta- tus.

Norcontrol Simulation, Horten,
Norway, has recently completed the installation and commissioning of
Korea's first ship-handling simula- tor. It has been delivered to Korea
Marine Training and Research In- stitute in Pusan.
The multimillion-dollar project was completed on time, and the simulator is housed in the institute's new simulation and research build- ing.
Offering both post-graduate courses and certification, as well as other courses, the institute is now using the ship-handling simulator to form the base for their new pilot training and marine research pro- gram.
Included in the delivery is a fully equipped bridge, fitted with radar,
ARPA, maneuver consoles, steering stand, pelorus, a complete set of real navigation instruments and commu- nication equipment, as well as over- head panel and indicators.
Measuring 20 feet by 23 feet, the bridge itself is mounted on a motion platform, and includes both vibra- tion and sound systems. The visual system, capable of producing day/ dusk/night scenes in addition to fog, covers 234 degrees by 26 degrees field of view. The instructor station renders complete control of all pa- rameters, and includes advanced briefing and debriefing facilities as well as a database development work station.
Prepared for the future, the sys- tem may also be connected to more own ships' bridges, engine room, ballast and liquid cargo simulators, to form a complete system for train- ing of dual purpose officers.
Norcontrol Simulation, one of the world's largest suppliers of marine simulators, currently has five other ship-handling simulators on order, in addition to a large number of radar and navigation, engine room, ballast, liquid cargo, fishery and in- strument simulators. pump dry! m •dudors MULTI-PURPOSE PUMPING EFFICIENCY

RH Trading, a subdivision of Ra- dio Holland USA, Houston, Texas, is marketing a number of new ma- rine electronics products.
A new quality COSPAS/SARSAT 406 MHz EPIRB, Tron 30 S manu- factured by Jotron Electronics is a reliable and worldwide-proven
EPIRB. It transmits on the COS-
PAS/SARSAT frequency 406 MHz and homing frequencies 121.5 MHz and 243.0 MHz.
The Tron 30 S features activation by three methods—by seawater contact, by means of pulling a safety pin, or by a "panic switch."
The ruggedly constructed Tron 30 S has long storage time batteries and can be fitted with a float-free or bulkhead-mounted bracket.
Although Tron 30 S has already been fitted aboard various U.S.- owned vessels, FCC approval is still pending.
In addition, RH Trading also markets the new Sailor RT 2048
Simplex/Semi Duplex VHF Radio- telephone, a quality compact unit for low cost. The VHF operates with a continuous output power of 25 watts. Furthermore, the RT 2048 is equipped with all 55 international
VHF channels plus a choice of eith- er 10 private channels and full scan- ning facilities or 40 private chan- nels. Dual watch and a quick chan- nel 16 are standard (selcall option- al).

Ratheon's Pathfinder®/ST True
Motion/Relative Motion Radars with Electronic Plotting provide a
Superior Technology (ST) signal processing system which detects weak targets typically lost in rain and sea clutter. Combined with high-performance transmitters and transceivers, and the latest raster displays, the PATHFINDER/ST provides excellent, high-tech per- formance. Available with a choice of 34 or 25-cm (16- and 12-inch) dis- plays, the PATHFINDER/ST radar plots six targets simultaneously, and displays calculated speed and head- ing data for any two selected tar- gets, in ten ranges from 1/4 to 96 miles. Target true wakes highlight speed and direction of moving tar- gets. Presentations can be Relative
Motion, showing own vessel as fixed, or True Motion, showing own vessel and other targets moving on the screen.
While the heart of the PATH-
FINDER/ST performance improve- ments is the Superior Technology signal processing system, with five separate processing programs, Ray- theon's new receiver is also a notice- able improvement. Using more sen- sitive, low-noise amplifiers, the in- put sensitivity of this receiver has been increased from 3 to 4 db (two to two-and-a-half times).
Newest among Raytheon radars are the R81/R82/R84 rasterscan ra- dars, 96-mile radars with 14-inch
CRTs available with a selection of transceivers: 10 kw X-band (R81); 25 kw X-band (R82); and 10 kw S- band (R84) with a variety of anten- na sizes (4 to 10 feet). And, the
R70A/R71/R72/R73/R74 radars (pending FCC type acceptance at time of this writing), offering maxi- mum ranges of 48 and 72 miles, depending on the model, with 12- inch CRT screens. The S-band R84 and S-band R74 radars are especial- ly well-suited for use in hostile weather situations.
