Compact Weather Facsimile From Raytheon Can Be Programmed For Unattended Operation
The new JAX 9 Weather Facsimile Receiver from Raytheon produces high-resolution satellite photos and other recordings in 16 gradation levels on 10-inch thermosensitive paper. Because of its built-in timer feature, the JAX 9 can be preset to start and stop during selected broadcasts, allowing fully unattended operation.
The JAX 9 offers automatic and manual control for phase matching, selection of scanning speed (60, 90, 120, or 240 scans per minute), index of cooperation (288 and 576), and paper feed.
Up to 100 weather station frequencies can be programmed into memory, using keypad controls. The JAX 9 has a double superheterodyne, synthesized receiving system with a frequency range of 2- 24.9999 MHz. It operates on 11 to 40 Vdc.
The JAX 9 has passed Raytheon's tough environmental tests for shock, vibration, temperature extremes, and resistance to corrosion, fungus, and water penetration. For more information on Raytheon's new JAX 9 Weather Facsimile Receiver,
