With the FS-1575/FS-2575/FS-5075 MF/HF DSC SSB radios FURUNO has invented ‘simple’ operation of an SSB radio - an advantage which will assist crew members who in general seldom use the SSB radio in their daily work.

These new radios provide prompt status overview, which - especially in ‘emergency’ situations - is important in order to have a full overview of the radio, i.e. the channels selected, signals strengths, power and message composing etc, without consulting a ‘How To Do’ operators manual.

In addition the radio contains a wide range of new features – not only related to GMDSS–regulation - which will make these new SSB radio’s important tools in the daily communication and operation of your vessel. 

Display

With the FS-series new ‘Full Status Information’ display the operation of the radio is much easier than seen before with a clear overview of all functions for prompt operation.

Beyond the normal function of selected channels etc, the current signal strengths (S-meter) is displayed and all ‘activated functions’ are visible including vessels position. Furthermore, vessel’s MMSI number and time are displayed.

 

 

 

SSB messagebox

A new feature for in- and outgoing messages is shown as simple messagebox icons.

Furthermore, the radio is equipped with a ‘Call log’ storing all previous DSC messages and calls.  

‘Short cut’ bottoms define DSC messaging for either ‘Emergency DSC’ messages or ‘Other DSC’ messages - clearly distinguishing from composing real emergency action or e.g. relay messages of the occurrence of a distress event obtained by non-DSC means. 

DSC in specific geographical areas

As a special and very useful feature the radio is able to transmit messages within a geographical defined area e.g. the user inserts the lat/long coordinates within a specific area. Other vessels, SSB-radios or coast stations having position input from GPS will then receive the DSC-call provided these are within the defined area. The geographical settings can be made as the shape of a quadrant or a circle.

The FURUNO FS-2575 can be upgraded for TEKLEX (NBDP) by adding only a FURUNO IB-583 telex message terminal, since the radio telex modem is allready included as standard feature.

Printer option 
A external printer can be connected both for ordinary printout of DSC-message or for the telex function via the printer interface, IF-8500.
