Product details

The MRD 80 (Marine Decoder Radio) receives weather forecasts and nautical warnings (NAVTEX) in the radio broadcasting formats MORSE, RTTY and SITOR. These are sent out worldwide according to the requirements of the international SOLAS (SAVE OF LIFE AT SEA).
Once received, forecasts, station notifications and weather charts can be displayed on the integrated display or printed out on paper over the integrated printer. These printouts are recognized and in combination with the logbook are valid as an official document.
