Receiver RX-C

Advanced HF link receiver with synthesizer tuner, network connectivity and HVA support

The RX-C is a dedicated HF link receiver that supports all Datawell Waverider buoys fitted with the standard HF transmitter. The RX-C supports both the “HXV” format and the “HVA” transmission formats. The HXV format is used by all buoys, except the DWR4 (/ACM) buoy which uses the HVA format.

In the RX-C, a programmable digital frequency synthesizer makes it possible to manually select the reception frequency in 100 Hz steps. This allows reception of any frequency between 25.5 and 35.5 MHz by the touch of a button. Additionally, up to 6 frequencies can be stored into the internal preset memory.
