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


Ideal for pumping bilges—stripping ballast, etc. Peripheral jet design handles liquids, solids, air. 21/?" to 6" sizes available.








Only the hose goes into tank to vacuum iiquids at rate of 10 15 gpm at suction IiHs up to 70' or more








Handy auxiliary pump for regular or emergency pumping of liquids from ballast, bilge, cargo spaces and tanks. Just attach hose from fire main and lower-eductor into space to pump large quantities of liquid quickly and easily.

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.
