Weather Fax (JAX-91)



The JAX-91 weather facsimile receiver is a paper base recording system. The new weatherfax is very user-friendly as it has an automatic printout function. The JAX-91 shares the same reliability as its predecessor, but integrates a set of new and enhanced functions, such as a suitable frequency selection based upon checking wave propagation. Additionally, frequency selection and timer operation in the same broadcasting station areas are significantly enhanced.

Automatic recording
All operations can be remotely controlled to automatically start up, set parameters, receiving images, feed paper, and stop by remote signals from the broadcasting stations. Only halftone recording is manually controlled.

Manual recording
You can manually set the index of co-operation (IOC), scanning speed, and the halftone recording. The JAX-91 automatically records the stops in this mode.

Forced recording
This is an extensive function of the automatic recording mode. The JAX-91 can manually record while neither in automatic or manual recording mode, also while broadcasting is in progress. Phasing is done manually. It also adapts to a unique system to terminate phase matching instantaneously.

Timer program recording
The period of the start and stop modes, station frequencies, and half-tone on/off are easy programmable. Whilst combined with the fully automatic mode, and unattended, error-free operation is made possible.

Fine half-tone recording
Pictures of clouds can be recorded in 16 gradation levels. This digital method ensures high resolution recording, using a proprietary system that finely reproduces maps and latitude and longitude grids with very fine and accurate lines.

Delivering natural imagery
The JAX-91 weatherfax provides clear-cut weather charts and satellite images on 15-inch thermal paper, gathering and generating crucial information under all weather conditions at sea.

Synthesized receiver
The built-in synthesized receiver is capable of setting any receiving frequency from the ten-key pad, and is able to preset up to 90 spot frequencies in the memory. This feature is very effective when receiving any new broadcast frequency and changing the station frequency.

Printout of frequencies and program lists
Up to 90 channels of memory frequencies and up to 15 channels of program lists can be printed out on the recording paper. This function is especially useful for setting programming and checking the stored frequencies.
