ITT Mackay Marine, a division of International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation, located in Elizabeth, N.J., recently hosted a Communication/Navigation Product Display at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York City.
One of the products demonstrated was the ITT Mackay Marine Telex Equipment, MRU-35AT and MRU-50BT. That equipment incorporates the North American Philips STB-750 SITOR unit for unattended operation, automatic error detection and correction, and Selective calling on Marine Telex. ITT Mackay Marine was successful in "working" coastal station PCH in Scheveningen, Holland; WCC in Chatham, Mass.; and their own experimental station in Raleigh, N.C., using this error correction marine telex system.
Other live demonstrations were shown with the Selenia Radar, both 16-inch and 12-inch displays; the NCS Satellite Navigation Receiver; Alden Marine Facsimile, and Modar/Triton VHF. Equipment on display also included the new channelized programmable RF Communications RF-230 SSB Transceiver, Micrologic ML-1000 Loran C, Dynell Omega 400, and Standard Communications Hand Held VHF/UHF units, as well as ITT Mackay Marine's standard line of products, including 3020A and 3021A Receivers, 5003C Auto Alarm, 222 VHF, and EPIRB.
Presentations were given by Commander Sutherland of the U.S. Coast Guard on the proposed New York Vessel Traffic System; H.R. Smith of ITT Mackay Marine on current and proposed U.S.
and foreign legislation; J. Luse of NCS on Maritime Satellites, and S. Berte of North American Philips on SITOR.
