Alden Electronics, Inc. recently introduced their new Navtex AE- 900 receiver and the Alden Faxmate II Weather Chart Recorder.

The AE-900 automatically receives all navigational notices, weather warnings, and search and rescue messages as required by the worldwide Global Maritime Distress And Safety System (GMDSS). The receiver can reportedly store up to 30 messages over a 68-hour period with a reception distance of400 miles offshore.

A high speed, silent thermal recording printhead is used to produce radio telex messages. The unit is also equipped with an audible and visual alarm to alert users of incoming search and rescue messages.

Navtex is an internationally adopted, automated system for broadcasting informational messages, warnings and notices affecting all mariners.

The Faxmate II is designed to operate at 12 VDC and is available with an optional inverter for AC operation. The recorder can also function as a computer printer. It is designed to operate with any HF single sideband or ham radio and provides mariners with weather and oceanographic charts. The charts indicate predicted speed and direction of storms or can aid fishermen by showing the warm and cold water eddy areas.
