IWarning! Installation and connections must be performed in part by qualified persons.

Page 10

4.3 Mounting the transceiver

To mount the transceiver to your vessel (see following picture):

1.Choose an appropriate location, as explained in the paragraph above.

2.Position the mounting bracket on the surface upon which it will be fixed, use a pencil to draw the position of the four holes where the screws will be inserted.

IEnsure that the surface intended for the transceiver mounting can be drilled into without damaging other parts of the vessel and be careful to not drill right through it.

3.Remove the bracket, drill four holes smaller in diameter than the screws, and reposition the mounting bracket, aligning it with the four holes.

4.Screw in the mounting screws and ensure the bracket is fixed firmly, using the screws, the grained washers, the flat washers and the nuts supplied.

IIf you are not able to reach the back part of the bracket surface to fix the nuts onto the screws, use wood or sheet-metal screws to fix the bracket.

5.Tighten the screws with a screwdriver so that the bracket is firmly fixed to the surface.

6.Align the transceiver on the bracket, ensuring the holes of the internal part of the bracket line up with those on both sides of the transceiver (you can choose

the preferred notch in order to best adjust the angle of the transceiver’s front panel for ease of viewing and use (150 of variation for each notch).

7.Attach the mounting knobs on the two sides of the bracket to soundly fix the transceiver.

IKeep the transceiver and microphone at a distance of at least 3 feet from all other magnetic devices (e.g. compass) on your vessel.

4.4 Adjustment of angle

To change the angle of inclination after installation:

1.Loosen the mounting knobs on the sides of the bracket.

2.Adjust the transceiver to a better angle, lining up the holes of the internal part of the bracket with those on both sides of the transceiver.

3.Tighten the knobs to fix the transceiver into place.

Page 11

4.5 Installation of the antenna/electromagnetic exposure

For optimal radio settings and minimal user exposure to electromagnetic radio frequency energy, ensure that:

The antenna is connected to the transceiver and is properly installed.

The antenna is situated away from people and is positioned at least three feet from the transceiver and microphone.

The connector is a standard PL259 (male UHF).

4.6 Mounting of Microphone

To install the microphone mount, look first for a mounting point close to the transceiver. The distance between the transceiver and the wall mount must be less than the length of the microphone cable.

IDo not pull excessively on the microphone cord. This part is important to the correct operation of the radio: over time, pulling may damage the cord and impede the user from transmitting.

Page 12

4.7 Connections

Refer to the following diagram:

4.7.a Power Supply

The transceiver power supply must be 12V DC (see specifics in par. 14). The red cable must be connected to the positive pin, the black to the negative pin.

IWarning! A faulty connection may seriously damage the radio!

IThe power cable is equipped with a protection fuse. If the fuse shorts, look for its reason before substituting the cable with a new one of the same type and value. Never short-circuit it, as this may damage the radio.

4.7.b GPS device

If your REGATTA 2 transceiver is connected to a GPS receiver, you can obtain and view NMEA information relative to the current position the vessel (latitude and longitude) and the local time with respect to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Wire Colors of Accessory cable:

ORANGE: Pin 4 to GPS +

RED: Pin 1 to GPS -

GREEN: Pin 3 to + supply for GPS

Male (Regatta) connector view

4.7.c Antenna

The antenna is an extremely important part of the device and noticeably influences the settings of any telecommunications device. Contact your supplier regarding the antenna and request advice about how to mount and best connect it to your transceiver.

IWarning! Ensure the antenna is in perfect working order. It may otherwise

seriously damage the radio! A periodical measurement of the stationary waves is advised using a suitable SWR meter.

5 BASIC OPERATION

5.1Turning REGATTA 2 on/off

To turn the transceiver on, rotate the ON/OFF/VOLUME knob clockwise until it clicks on. You will hear a beep (acoustic signal) and the LCD display will come on: the device is turned on to VHF mode.

To turn the transceiver off, rotate the knob counter-clockwise until you hear further click: the LCD display will turn off.

2If your transceiver is not connected to a GPS receiver, it is necessary to insert manually your coordinates, otherwise an alarm will continue to sound. For further details, see par.7.1.

5.2Volume regulation

Bring the ON/OFF/VOLUME knob first to medium volume. Once the transceiver picks up a signal, adjust the volume to a comfortable level. If no signal is picked up, use the squelch control as described in the following paragraph and regulate the volume using background noise.

5.3Squelch Regulation

Squelch is used to eliminate the annoying background noise you hear when no signal is being picked up. If the squelch is adjusted correctly, there should be silence in between calls as well as a reduction in battery consumption. To regulate squelch:

1.Rotate the SQ knob completely counter-clockwise until you hear background noise (if you don’t hear anything, turn up the volume) and bring up RX on the LCD display.

2.If no signal is being received (only noise), slowly rotate the SQ knob clockwise, stopping as soon as the noise and RX disappear stably.

2If you regulate the squelch level too high (closed), you may hear only background noise

or intermittent discharges. Correct setting of squelch is also important for reasons discussed further on.

5.4Selecting an operating channel

5.4.With alphanumeric keypad

1.Ensure that you are in normal operating mode (radio mode), otherwise press the “RAD” button several times or press the “C” button until the display shows: A “ON”

2.Select the desired channel and confirm by pressing the “E” button.

2If there is no confirmation within 2 seconds by pressing the “E” button, REGATTA 2 will return to the previously used channel.

A

2If a “notexistant” channel is inserted, for example CH99 the radio beeps 4 times after pressing the E”-button, REGATTA 2 returns to the previously used channel.

2To switch between USA, CANada, and INTernational channel lists, turn off the unit, and while holding down the button, turn the unit on. The display will indicate the band.

5.4.a Using the microphone buttons (UP or DOWN)

1.Ensure that you are in normal operating mode (Radio mode); otherwise follow the procedure described in par. 5.4.a.

2.Press the UP or DOWN buttons on the microphone repeatedly to scroll through the marine channels until finding the desired channel.

2Holding down one of the buttons will allow you to scroll quickly through the channels.

2The marine band does not recognize some channel numbers. Refer to the frequency table. The channels may have different receiving and transmitting frequencies (duplex channels) or may have the same (simplex channels).

2Regulations require that some channels operate on low transmission power (see Chap.1) For this reason, REGATTA 2 automatically switches to low power when these channels are selected.

5.5Transmission and reception

ITransmitting without a perfectly functioning antenna may seriously damage the transceiver.

The PTT (Push-To-Talk) button is located on the external microphone of your REGATTA 2. To transmit:

1.Ensure that no one else is speaking.

2.Hold down the PTT button on the microphone. TX will appear on the Display.

Page 14

3.Wait a second, then speak in a normal voice about 2 inches from the microphone.

4.When you have finished, release the PTT button: TX will disappear from the display. Now REGATTA 2 is in receiving mode (silent and waiting for a signal) where it will automatically receive any communication.

5.6Selecting high and low transmission power

The transmission phase absorbs the most energy. To reduce the risk of wearing out the battery, we recommend selecting low transmission power when transmitting over short distances. Hold the H/L button down (on the radio): Lo (low power) appears

on the display. When transmitting or receiving over long distances or with weak signals, press the H/L button again. Lo will be replaced with Hi (high power) on the

display.

2When the transceiver is tuned to a channel limited to low output power, pressing the H/L button has no effect.

2In the standard mode, REGATTA 2 switches 25 W during high power output and 1 Watt during low power output. Only on channels 15 and 17 the radio always reduces automatically - according to the international agreements for maritime radio – to a value under 1 Watt.

5.7Instant recall of channel 16

Channel 16 is a security and distress channel. This channel is used to establish initial contact with another station and for emergency communication. This channel can be called up at any time by pressing button 16 on both the transceiver. To return to normal operations, select another channel using the alphanumerical keypad or the UP/DOWN buttons on the microphone. By pressing a second time the 16 button, the radio returns to the previously used channel before selecting channel 16.

IDo not transmit on channel 16 unless absolutely necessary. Doing so may impede emergency operations.

5.8Display lighting

If ambient lighting is insufficient for reading the display, the LCD display backlighting can be adjusted. Hold pressed the button until a desired level is reached or until it has been completely turned off.

If the backlighting is activated, the display shows “LITE”.

The chosen level of backlighting remains stored, also in case of extinction and successive turning on the radio.

If you desire to switch off the backlighting immediately or if you like to reactivate the previously inserted level, press the button.

Page 15

6 SCANNING FUNCTIONS

6.1Channel scanning

REGATTA 2 can automatically search for signals throughout the marine band by scanning, or selecting the channels in rapid sequence. When a signal is detected, the scanning pauses on that channel and remains blocked until the signal ends. Before the scanning automatically starts again, REGATTA 2 waits for a few seconds in case the user wishes, if necessary, to respond to a call even if in truth you will see the channels being scanned.

The REGATTA 2 scanning happens with a minimum of 2 channels to a maximum of 56 channels on the INT band (channel 70 is not selectable).

In order to execute the scanning of the marine

 

 

channels, it is necessary to create a list of channels

B

 

for scanning. Operate in the following way:

 

 

1.Select a channel you desire to insert into the scanning list.

2.Press and hold the “SCAN” (B); button for 2 seconds; the radio beeps twice and on the display appears for a short time, then

the words “Scan Ena” (C) appear.

3.If you desire to cancel a channel from the scanning

list, repeat the procedure as described at point 2. In

C

that case the display is showing “Scan Inh”.

 

4.Once created your list, you can activate the

scanning by pressing the function key corresponding to the word “Scan”

(C).

If you want to eliminate (useful if there are distortions) or to exclude

momentarily (useful for undesired conversations) a channel during scanning, operate as follows:

DEFINITIVE EXCLUSION OF A CHANNEL:

If your REGATTA 2 is operating on a busy

D

 

channel, press the “Inh”

(D)

. function key.

 

TEMPORARY REMOVAL OF A CHANNEL:

Press the function key corresponding to the written “Adv” to advance the scanning and to temporarily remove this channel from the scanning list. At the end of the complete scanning cycle, the channel previously jumped will be monitored again.

The scanning can be stopped by pressing the buttons C, or button 16 on the microphone or by sending out a DISTRESS call. Your transceiver will stop on the current channel (if you pressed button C) or on channel 16 (if you pressed 16 or PTT on the microphone).

2Note: Scanning does not function correctly if the squelch is not regulated as described in par.5.3.

6.2Dual Watch and Triple Watch

The meaning of these terms are:

Dual Watch – allows the user to remain tuned to a channel of choice while periodically performing an automatic verification of signals on channel 16.

Triple Watch – as written above, including a third channel chosen by the user.

6.3Activation of Dual Watch/Triple

To activate Dual or Triple watch:

Dual watch - Select a desired channel and press the D/W-button. The Display will indicate “D/W” and you will see the two monitored channels.

The Dual Watch function can be stopped in 5 different modes: by pressing the PTT- or the “16” buttons on the microphone, D/W”- or C”-buttons or by sending out a DSC-call.

Triple watch – select one of the 2 channels you desire to monitor together with channel 16. Hold pressed the function key corresponding to the indication T/W until you hear two beeps. Now on the display appears the script “User”.(F). Move now to the second channel you desire to monitor, press the function key corresponding to T/W. Now you will see all three channels sliding on the display with indication T/W. “Adv” appears too, that, similar to SCAN function, has the aim to exclude momentarily the monitoring of

the current channel.

The Triple Watch function can be stopped by pressing the

C-button, the PTT- or the 16-buttons or by sending out a

DSC call.

For both modes, the operation can be resumed with

2Similar to scanning of marine channels, Dual Watch and Triple watch stop when a signal is found and remain blocked for a few seconds after the signal disappears, in order to give the user a chance to respond to a call, if necessary.

2Dual/Triple Watch cannot function correctly if the squelch is not correctly regulated, as described in par .5.3

G

6.4Memory channels (MEM mode)

6.4.Memory scanning (SCAN MEMORY)

1. Similar to the scan function, memory scan will H cycle sequentially through the channels, but only

those, which have been pre-selected (at least 3).

2.Press the “M/S” function key (G) . The radio emits

2 beeps and “M/S Sel” appears on the display for about 2 seconds (H).

3.Select another channel and repeat the procedure mentioned above.

In order to eliminate a channel erroneously inserted into scan cycle, select the channel press

and hold the “M/S” function key until the display I shows “M/S Del”. (I) .

4.Once all channels are stored, the scanning can begin (SCAN MEMORY): Press the function key corresponding to the written “M/S”. The channels will be monitored and the display will show the script “M/S” – which indicates the scanning of the stored channels, - “Adv” and “Del” in relation to the 2 function keys. Every time a signal/disturb is found on a channel, the scanning stopps for a few seconds in order to give the user a chance to respond to the call or to cancel the channel, if necessary.

2Note: Scanning does not function correctly if the squelch is not regulated as described in par.5.3.

6.4.a Reception/Transmission during SCAN MEMORY

Reception: If REGATTA 2 finds a signal the scanning interrupts. The display indicates “RX” instead of “M/S” and the communication will be received through the loudspeaker.

Transmission: It is possible to transmit at any time, also when the scanning is active. In that case REGATTA 2 will always transmit on channel 16; if instead the transmission is done after a signal has been found, the device will transmit on the previously busy channel. After the transmission the scanning comes interrupted.

6.4.b To delete/To jump a pre-selected channel in memory

If during the scanning a signal is received on an undesired or disturbed channel, it is possible to temporarily cancel the channel or to skip the channel momentarily.

In order to execute these functions, the radio must be syntonized on a channel (firm scanning). Through the two function keys corresponding to “Adv” and “Del” you will have the possibility to jump the busy channel respective to cancel it from the preselected list of channels.

There are 4 modes to stop the scanning of channels in memory:

1.By pressing the PTT-button.

2.By pressing the 16 button on the microphone or on the front panel

3.By pressing the C-button.

4.By sending out a DSC-Call.

7 USE WITH GPS

7.1Function

If connected to a GPS receiver, the transceiver will display the vessel position (latitude and longitude), as well as time data. If information regarding position data are not received, in the normal radio mode, time data does not appear and a minutelong warning tone will sound (can be deactivated by pressing any button). This tone will sound every 4 hours, reminding the user that position data needs to be inserted. The user may also insert the coordinates manually as described in par. 10.6.

7.2GPS information on the display

Refer to the following illustrations:

1.Position indicator

Displays GPS or manually inserted co-ordinates.

2.Time indicator

Shows data supplied by the GPS or the transceiver’s clock.

7.3Customized setup

Some GPS receivers may require a change in the manner the radio processes the GPS data. Pressing GPS selection diplays CHECKSUM ON/OFF selection.

If no GPS receiver is connected, using WARN BEEP ON/OFF allows the user to defeat the audible warning that new position data is required. Press C button to return to menu.

8 DIGITAL SELECTIVE CALLING (DSC)

8.1Introduction

Digital Selective Calling is a semiautomatic method for controlling VHF, MF and HF radio calls. It was also designed as part of the global marine security and emergency response system (GMDSS). It is likely that DSC will eventually replace audio calls on emergency frequencies and will be used to send urgent and routine radio-transmitted maritime security information. This new service will allow crafts to send/receive calls of an emergency, urgent, security, or routine nature to/from vessels equipped with a DSC transceiver.

ITo avoid accidentally sending a distress call or a call sent incorrectly, contact your

vendor or local authorities for updates on DSC operating and emergency procedures.

IIn European inland waterways DSC-function is not allowed.

8.2Mobile Marine Identification Service (MMSI)

2Important! To send/receive DSC calls, the user must program his personal MMSI code into the transceiver. This is a nine-digit number used by marine transceivers equipped for DSC digital selective calling. This number is used much like a telephone number for contacting other, specific vessels. For further details on programming your MMSI, see par. 10.10.

8.3Navigating the DSC menu

REGATTA 2 offers many DSC functions. For this reason it was created a specific menu of settings and activations accessible via the function keys as follows:

1.Access the “CALL”-Menu by pressing the related function key.

2.Press the function key corresponding to the word “Type” to select the type of desired call.

2Once inside a sub-menu, you can return at any time to the main menu by pressing the C- button and terminating the current operation.

8.4Individual call (Routine To)

The user can carry out an individual call to a specific DSC station (a vessel or a costal station). To carry out calls, you have to enter the MMSI code manually or recall it from the preprogramed MMSI directory. For further details on programming the MMSI directory, see par. 10.5.

Page 18

8.4.Sending an individual call

You can carry out an individual call using the following procedure:

5. Press briefly the function key corresponding to CALL. On the display appears :

6. The outlined line below under "Routine To” appears if no owner name was inserted in the column “Dir”,

otherwise a similar situation may appear:

J

 

K

7.Press the function key “Ch 06” to access the sub-menu.

8.Press several times the function key “Chan” in order to select one of the 23 available channels (simplex channels) and confirm by pressing the E-button.

9.Like mentioned above, it is possible, to insert manually the address you want to call (using the alphanumerical keypad), or to select one of the addresses previously stored (maximum 16) by pressing several times the function key related to the indication “DIR”.

10.Then, after you have selected the communication channel and the address, the call can be carried out by pressing the function key corresponding to “Send” and confirmed by pressing the E-button.

11.After the call execution the radio operates as follows:

If you have carried out a call to a ship, after the call,

you will get an answer, the radio will move to the

 

channel previously selected under step 3-4.

L

 

12.At this point:

If the call comes confirmed from the other part, the display shows the message:

In this case the answer is reached from ship 100000000 and the possible communication channel will be CH06.

To confirm the reception of the received message, REGATTA 2 will emit an acoustic message that can be interrupted by pressing the function key corresponding to ”OK” or “STOP”.

Pressing OK beyond interrupting the acoustic signalling, REGATTA 2 is set to the chosen communication channel (in our example 06).

If no function key comes pressed at that time (1 minute) the acoustic message will extinguish automatically.

If the call is not acknowledged, the display will indicate

(M), by pressing the function key corresponding to

“Stop” the radio will return to the normal radio mode.

M

2Once inside a sub-menu, you can return at any time to the

main individual CALL-menu (Routine to) by pressing the C- button and terminating the current operation.

8.5Group calling (Group Call)

This function allows the user to call a specific group of stations which have the same MMSI group code memorized in their transceivers and which signals the channel the user wishes to speak on. Therefore you can only carry out the group call when you have programmed the addresses in a directory as described in par. 10.10

8.5.Sending a group call

1.You can carry out a group call through following procedure:

2.1. Press briefly the function key corresponding to

“Call”. On the display appears:

N

3.Press three times the function key corresponding to

the written “Type” in order to to visualize on the display the following situation:

4.The outlined line below under “Group Call” appears when no address has been programmed in the column “Dir”.

5.Press the function key “Ch 06” to access the sub-menu.

6.Press several times the function key “Chan” to select one of the 23 available channels (simplex channels) and confirm by pressing the E-button.

Page 19

7.Like mentioned above, it is possible, to insert manually the address of who is desired to call (using the alphanumerical keypad), or to select one of the addresses previously stored (maximum 16) by pressing several times the function key related to “DIR”.

8.Then, after you have selected the communication channel and the owner address, the call can be carried out by pressing the function key corresponding to the script “Send” and confirmed by pressing the E-button.

9.At this point you can communicate with the stations on the pre-selected channel that have given an answer to you.

2Once inside a sub-menu, you can return at any time to the main CALL-menu by pressing the C-button.

8.6General call to all ships (ALL SHIP SAFETY – ALL SHIP URGENCY)

8.6.Sending a call to all ships

L.SINKING

M.ADRIFT

4.To send out the distress call hold down the DISTRESS-button for 5 seconds. An acoustic alert will emit and the distress call will be carried out on channel 70 even when the channel is in use.

5.After the distress call, the transceiver will simultaneously check channel 70 and channel 16 on a receipt of DSC confirmation and meanwhile appears following:

6.At this point:

If the distress call is received and confirmed by another DSC radio station, the acoustic alarm will stop sounding and the display will return to

normal use in VHF mode on channel 16, sending

T

on high transmission power.

 

If no confirmation is received, the device will re-send the distress call at intermissions of 3.5 – 4.5 minutes (even with channel 70 in use), until a confirmation is received or until the user manually cancels the call through the C- button.

IBy pressing button 16, the transceiver will return to normal VHF operation, but the call will not be cancelled and the person who responded to the call may not have called off rescue operations.

2If, at step 4, the user stops pressing the DISTRESS button before 5 seconds have elapsed, the distress call will not be sent. To exit and return to VHF mode, press button

16.

2The acoustic alarm will only stop definitively once the transceiver has received confirmation from the receiver of the call.
