ATIS (Automatic Transmitter Identification System) is standard fitted for use in European inland waterways. It automatically transmits the ID number when a communication is over or every 5 min while in communication. The ATIS mode and DSC mode are selectable through the menu.
FS2570 - MF/HF Radiotelephone/DSC Watch Receiver/Telex (250W)
The FS2570 is a MF/HF radiotelephone that is fully capable of GMDSS operations. In addition to standard radio operation, it can operate as DSC (Digital Selective Call) on general communications and as a DSC Watch Receiver on all distress and safety frequencies in MF and HF bands. A telex modem (NBDP) accompanies the transceiver unit for general message transfer and distress message/maritime safety information handling, satisfying the carriage requirements for GMDSS A3-A4 sea areas.
The FS2570 maintains a continuous watch on a distress call, even while you are exchanging normal voice messages. The DSC channels can be individually set or all selected channels can be automatically scanned. When a DSC message is received, the radiotelephone gives audible and visual alarms. It works on all authorized transmit frequencies between 1.6 and 27.5 MHz. Receiver frequencies are selectable between 100kHz and 30Mhz in 10Hz steps. The transmit and receive frequencies can be selected separately or in pair. The digital frequency synthesizer provides high frequency stability for DSC and NBDP as well as telephony operation.
