Info-Tech M800

The Info-Tech M-800 is a dedicated facsimile decoder. You simply supply audio from your shortwave (or satellite receiver) into the M-800 and attach a compatible parallel dot matrix graphics printer (not supplied). You are now ready to copy international press, weather and other FAX transmissions.

The M-800 will handle all four standard fax speeds:  60, 90, 120 and 240 LPM and 288, 440 or 576 IOC. The M-800 may be set for line mode (for text and maps) or gray mode (for photos). M-800 controls include:  On/Off, Start/Stop, Frame, Speed, Format, Direction, Polarity and AM/FM. Yes, the M-800 can handle FM FAX as found on shortwave or AM FAX as found on some satellite downlinks.

The rear panel has a 1/4 inch 2 conductor audio input jack. Output is to a DB25 parallel printer port. The Serial Jack on the rear panel is strictly used as a pass-through for sharing of a serial printer with a separate RTTY decoder (selectable at 300 or 600 baud). The M-800 does not provide serial FAX output. Requires 110 VAC 60 Hz or 12-15 VDC 16.385 x 3.5 x 10.75 inches.
