  AE-3300 Marinefax & Navtex Receiver

Whether you own a pleasure yacht or a larger vessel, this small but powerful receiver will really make your life easier.

The AE-3300 was designed for the user that requires a high-performance receiver that’s multipurpose and easy to use. Our AE-3300 covers the range from 9 KHz to 30 MHz, and contains a number of decoding functions including:


- HF Weatherfax   (Click to view pdf of screenshots, 300k)
- NAVTEX
- DSC
- RTTY (SITOR)

It can also function in the standard AM, SSB and CW radio modes. With all its functions and facilities the AE-3300 is truly a complete marine information center. In addition, a GPS option is available which integrates the receiver with a high-resolution global mapping facility that allows you to track your position with relative ease.

This high-performance marine receiver is extremely sensitive and optimized to work with relatively short antennas, typically found in a marine environment, yet featuring a respectable dynamic range making the receiver resistant to strong signal overload.

The receiver comes in a small enclosure which connects to an IBM-compatible PC (desktop or laptop) via the supplied USB cable. It is extremely user-friendly (plug-and-play) and easy to install in any yacht or vessel. An external antenna connects to the receiver.

Its small size and PC compatibility make this unit ideal where transportability is desired. You can pack up the unit and take it with you very easily for operation with your laptop in any boat or even in a fixed location if you wish.

Optional Accessories:

- Active antenna
- Mounting bracket
- GPS receiver

  AE-2000 Professional Navtex Receiver

If you need a dedicated NAVTEX receiver that is fully compliant with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Resolution MSC.148 (77) then this unit is for you.

The AE-2000 is ideal for commercial ships, navy vessels, and commercial shipping boats. It has the largest, best readable color screen in the market! The 8” display is viewable from a distance even under the most unfavorable lighting conditions. The AE-2000 shows search and rescue (SAR) messages in red color to differentiate these distress messages from navigational or meteorological warnings. For ease of reading, three colors can be selected for the screen background, making it one of the most advanced and flexible units in its class.

The Alden AE-2000 features two independently operating receivers (in compliance with IMO requirements). These receivers allow for the simultaneous reception of the standard 518 KHz NAVTEX signal, and either the 490 KHz or 4,209.5 KHz that is broadcast in some parts of the world. If both the domestic transmission and the international one occur at the same time, the AE-2000 displays the 518 KHz channel messages and stores the messages from the other band for review at a later time. Pressing a single key allows the operator to switch between the main channel and the second channel text pages.

For your convenience, should you require a hard copy of your Navtex messages, we offer a matching printer that plugs directly into one of the three external I/O ports in the back of the unit.

A 1.2 meter three-frequency active antenna is included as a standard accessory. Specially designed front-end filtering allows all NAVTEX channels to be received on the same antenna without cross-channel interference and without sacrificing receiver performance.

If you are looking for a professional, top of the line Navtex receiver, this will be your best choice.

Optional Accessories:


- Thermal printer

  AE-1000 Compact Navtex Receiver

For the cost-conscious user that is not willing to compromise on quality, the AE-1000 is an excellent choice.

This is a compact LCD display Navtex receiver which offers outstanding quality at a very affordable price.

The AE-1000 is not intended to be used as a GMDSS approved component, but instead it is geared to the recreational user or for use in vessels that do not need to meet compulsory GMDSS/ IMO requirements. This receiver works in the 518KHz frequency, where domestic and most international Navtex messages are broadcast.

The NAVTEX message screen is a high contrast 4.5 inch LCD that provides a wide easy-to-read display (32 characters x 16 lines per page). You won’t have to use and replace thermal paper again! The AE-1000 provides a fully electronic, economical, maintenance free solution. Both screen backlighting and contrast levels are fully adjustable. Stored messages can be scrolled line-by-line or message-by-message with a single keystroke, and can be output for printout with a PC or for other onboard or shore based applications.

A short, steel whip antenna is supplied with this receiver as a standard accessory.

  AE-900 The “Classical” Alden Navtex Receiver

The ALDEN AE-900 is considered a “classical” Navtex unit.

It was introduced over 12 years ago by Alden Electronics, Inc. and it is still in operation with hundreds of commercial, fishing, and navy vessels. It operates automatically in the 518 KHz frequency to receive NAVTEX broadcasts worldwide. It uses a high speed, quiet thermal printer to provide sharp, legible messages on 4˝ inch wide thermal paper. The AE-900 features an audible and visual alarm to alert personnel of any incoming search and rescue messages. Its small size and rugged construction allows counter, overhead or bulkhead installation. It swivels freely for easy viewing.

The AE-900 is designed to eliminate multiple printing of the same messages by only printing those messages not previously received. Specific message types and stations are selectable so only types of information and transmitting area needed are received. One Hundred Twenty-Eight (128) message ID’s are stored for 68 hours so that received messages are not repeated. After 68 hours, retransmitted messages will once again be accepted. Should too many errors occur during initial reception of any given message, forward error correction (FEC) allows these messages to be repeated.

Although this unit does not comply with the latest IMO rules, it is perfectly capable of receiving all transmissions in 518 KHz.

An active steel whip antenna is normally supplied with this receiver as a standard accessory.
