NASA Marine's excellent Navtex receiver - essential kit for serious sailors. The Clipper navtex is the culmination of nearly 20 years of experience in manufacturing navtex instruments. The compact display unit will grace any instrument panel with its sharp high contrast liquid crystal display. Standard features of the receiver include 518 and 490kHz message reception and a non volatile program memory - if your sailing is confined to one particular area, then you need program the unit only once. Though it will of course receive every station worldwide if necessary! For the best possible night viewing the unit boasts a white backlight that is actuated automatically when programming, a single key press will turn it on and off when reading the messages. Additionally, a built in timer for the light is included to save power when not needed. The antenna at just 195mm high can be easily mounted at deck level to receive the navtex low frequency signals.
