Universal M-1200

The Universal M-1200 card requires just one full-size slot in a PC. Now you can receive standard and sophisticated modes, previously only available on expensive dedicated units. This board contains three separate demodulators (FAX, Morse and RTTY) to ensure legible reception even under adverse reception conditions. Variable shifts from 60 to 1200 Hz are possible as well as low or high tone pairs and modem tone sets. Standard reception modes are included such as Morse Code, Baudot RTTY and SITOR A&B. Advanced diplo-military modes such as FEC-A, ARQ-M2, ARQ-E, ARQ-E3 and ARQ-6-90 are supported. ASCII and Packet modes are also featured. The VHF-UHF user has capability to monitor the ACARS aviation teletype mode and decoding of CTCSS and DCS is also supported. Many user features are available to enhance your radioteletype listening. Multiple Scroll Inhibit (MSI) removes blank lines, Automatic Threshold Control (ATC) provides reception during mark-only or space-only reception. Over Print Inhibit (OPI) prevents overprinting on your printer. Sel-Cal capability allows your computer to print only on selected subjects received. Advanced RTTY enthusiasts will appreciate the Databit and Literal modes, helpful in protocol identification. For FAX reception (only) your computer must have either an EGA or VGA monitor (color or mono). The video quality of your FAX intercepts will amaze you. The detail and resolution on your monitor will rival that previously seen only on printed output. Advanced FAX imaging includes false-color and zoom features. FAX images as well as text traffic can be saved on to disk for later retrieval or analysis. Despite the sophistication of this device, operation is easy through on-screen menus, status indicators and help windows. User programmable memories are supported, and you can select your own screen colors. A datascope feature operates in both RTTY and FAX modes. Audio input for a single receiver is via a DB9F I/O jack or an RCA phono jack. Scope output is also available via the DB9F jack. Note:  For accurate DCS, PL and pager reception, direct connection to the receiver's detector may be required. The M-1200 comes with an informative Owner's Manual and 3½ inch DOS diskette. Made in the U.S.A.
