SAFETY NOTICES
WARNING: Do not connect the NAV-7 main unit directly to a AC electrical supply,
as an electric shock or fire hazard could result.
WARNING: Do not connect the NAV-7 system to a DC supply exceeding 31 V or
reverse the supply polarity.
CAUTION: Do not bypass the built in fuse
CAUTION: The NAV-7 system is designed for operation in the temperature range 15 °C to +55 °C. Do not use the system in environments which exceed this range.
CAUTION: The NAV-7 unit is not water-proof. Consequently it must be located in a
dry place and must be protected from direct contact with water.
CAUTION: Do not locate the NAV-7 unit in a position where;
a) the controls of the vessel may be obstructed.
b) it may obstruct normal movement around the vessel.
c) it may cause bodily injury.
CAUTION: Unauthorised opening of the NAV-7 unit or antenna units will invalidate
the warranty.
CAUTION: NAVTEX is for use as an aid to navigation and should not lead to a
reduction in the level of good seamanship required at all times.
CAUTION: Reception of NAVTEX messages cannot always be guaranteed and is
dependant on the quality of radio propagation at the time. No liability can be accepted
for the non transmission or non reception of NAVTEX messages.
CAUTION: Compass Safe Distances
NAV-7 main unit compass safe distance 0.87m
Compass deviation;
0.3º at 0.65m
1º at 0.41m.
Recommendation
Connection of a source of UTC data to either the NMEA 0183 or the IBS port is
strongly recommended for best operation of the NAV-7.

QUICK START
NAV-7 is extremely easy to operate:
•
Apply power at the vessels power switch panel
•
The NAV-7 will start up after a few seconds delay
•
Set UTC time and date (automatic when connected to GNSS / GPS)
•
The NAV-7 will now start to receive and display NAVTEX messages dependant
on the transmission schedule of the NAVTEX stations within the vessels current
region.
Note It may be several hours before the first message is received, this is dependant
on NAVTEX transmission coverage provided locally.
Take the time to read this manual carefully as it contains essential information
regarding the operation and maintenance of the NAV-7 and a useful background to
the NAVTEX system.

ABOUT NAV-7
The NAV-7 has been designed to meet the requirements of IMO (Intentional Maritime
Organisation) MSC.148 (77) and IEC technical standard 61097-6 (Ed 2.0).
The NAV-7 has three separate receiver channels, one each tuned to 490 kHz, 518
kHz and 4209.5 kHz. The NAV-7 will receive on all three frequencies simultaneously
in those parts of the world where transmissions are available (refer to Appendix 1).
The NAV-7 can be set up to filter out stations and/or message categories that are not
required by the User.
The NAV-7 is capable of being connected to an Integrated Bridge System (IBS),
transferring NAVTEX messages to other navigational aids if required. Note that the
IBS must be compliant with the serial port requirements of IEC 61097-6 (Ed 2.0).
The NAV-7 will accept UTC time & date information from the IBS port if available.
UTC time & date will be used to timestamp received NAVTEX messages.
Permanent installation of the NAV-7 can be made with either the bulkhead-mounting
bracket or the flush panel mounting kit provided.
The NAVTEX antenna should be mounted where it is elevated clear of metal objects
in a location where it cannot easily be damaged.

INTRODUCTION
NAVTEX is a method of transmitting navigational warnings and weather forecasts
from designated coast radio stations. All English language transmissions are made on
the 518 kHz NAVTEX channel. Each NAVTEX station is allocated several time slots
during the day when it is permitted to transmit, normally at four hourly intervals. The
exceptions to this are gale warnings and search and rescue messages which may be
transmitted at any time.
Reception of 518 kHz NAVTEX transmissions is normally limited to an area of 200 300 miles radius around each transmitting station, although considerably greater
ranges are possible at night. Subject to IMO approval, additional local language
transmissions are sent on 490 kHz and on 4209.5 kHz, NAV-7 supports simultaneous
reception of all three NAVTEX channels.
Designed to the latest International specifications, NAV-7 meets IMO requirements
under GMDSS and is designed for simplicity of operation. It will provide up to date
MSI (Marine Safety Information) and weather forecasts and is suitable for use by all
classes of commercial vessels and large pleasure craft. It will display and store
NAVTEX messages without manual intervention within designated areas of NAVTEX
service coverage.
If the vessel is located within the coverage area of several NAVTEX stations
(particularly at night), the NAV-7 may overwhelm you with information. It can therefore
be set up to display only those stations and message categories you want to receive
and which are applicable to the area in which the vessel is currently sailing.
Normally, routine NAVTEX messages are repeated at four hourly intervals. Provided
that the NAV-7 is left running, repeated messages are not displayed more than once.
Each message is retained for three days (72 hours) after its last reception before
being automatically deleted, unless the message has been marked as locked.
Full detail of the GMDSS NAVTEX service is published in the Admiralty List of Radio
Signals Volume 5, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). Published
by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office.
The IMO and various national coastguards also have informative websites; see the
links page at www.mcmurdo.co.uk

OPERATION
Switch on the NAV-7 by applying power via a circuit breaker or switched fuse.
There will be a few seconds delay whilst the software loads the contents of the
NAVTEX message store during which time the front panel red LED will blink.
The NAV-7 start-up screen will now be shown.
This screen disappears after 30 seconds; it may be removed sooner by pressing any
key.
Page 9
The NAV-7 is now ready to receive NAVTEX messages.
Receiving NAVTEX messages
When the NAV-7 begins to receive a signal, one or more of the receiver icons at the
top of the screen will appear to indicate which of the receivers is active.
When a complete message has been received, a pop-up appears on the display
indicating that a new message is available and the "unread message" icon flashes.
The message can be read by pressing the Enter key, or the popup can be removed
without reading the message by pressing the Right key. As each new message is
received, the NAV-7 may also generate a single short beep to attract attention to the
new message. This audible alert can be disabled on the Setup mode: System options
page if it is not required.
Any messages that are not read immediately will be marked with the "unread
message" symbol in both the Index and Summary modes. The "unread message"
icon at the top of the display continues to flash until all messages have been read.
Note that while a popup is on display only the Enter or Right buttons have any effect;
all other keys are disabled until the popup is removed.
Page 10
Alarms
The message category is used to classify the nature of each NAVTEX message. Of
particular note are message types 'D' (search and rescue), 'A' and 'L' (navigational
warnings) and 'E', 'B' and 'C' (meteorological warnings). When a message with any of
these message categories is received the NAV-7 operates its alarm relay contacts
and transmits an NMEA "ALR" sentence to the currently selected alarm port. The
alarm relay continues to operate until the alarm is acknowledged either by removing
the popup or by reception of an appropriate NMEA "ACK" sentence from another
connected device. Search and rescue messages (category 'D') cannot be read later;
the popup box can only be cleared by pressing the Enter key and reading the
message.
Finding and viewing NAVTEX messages
The NAV-7 displays NAVTEX messages in several ways designed to make finding
and viewing particular message categories or an individual message easy and
convenient.

Message index display
The Message index display shows the identifiers of messages from a specific
receiver. Unread messages have an “envelope” () mark; locked messages (see Full
message display) have a “key” () mark.
Message identifiers can be expanded to show either the first two lines or the full
message by selecting the desired message and pushing the appropriate softkey.
Messages from another receiver can be displayed using the View softkey, which
cycles through the available sources.
Messages are grouped by time interval. The Show softkey cycles through the set
intervals.
Message summary display
The Message summary display shows the first two lines of each message, selected
by various criteria.
Selection criteria are time, station identity and message type. The Sort by softkey
cycles through these criteria.
Depending on the selection, the “group” is a 4-hour period, a station or a message
type.
The Show softkey controls the total number of messages displayed by suppressing
messages which are older than the selected time frame.
A message can be shown in full by selecting it and pushing the View softkey.
Full message display
Because messages are automatically erased 72 hours after they are received, it is
necessary to take action to retain an important message beyond this time. Displaying
the message and pressing the Lock softkey causes the message to be retained
indefinitely. A locked message is identified by a “key” () mark in the Index display.
A locked message is unlocked by displaying it (in this view) and pressing the Unlock
softkey.
Up to 250 messages can be saved for long term retention; once the limit has been
reached, operating the Lock softkey will not lock any more messages until some are
unlocked again.
Minimising the number of messages displayed
After the NAV-7 has been switched on for a while there will be a large number of
NAVTEX messages stored in memory. These can be quite overwhelming if the user is
looking for particular message categories or an individual message.
Several design features have been incorporated into the NAV-7 to make day to day
operation easier:
•
Separate frequency channel pages
•
Station filtering
Page 13
•
Message category filtering
•
Time-limited display of messages
Separate frequency channel pages
A separate NAVTEX message display is provided for each of the 3 receiver channels.
All 518 kHz messages appear together, all 490 kHz messages appear together and
all 4209.5 kHz messages appear together. Switch between these displays by using
the View softkey.
Station filtering
NAVTEX transmitting stations that are not required can be de-selected by making the
appropriate selections in the Setup screens.
Message category filtering
NAVTEX message categories that are not required can be de-selected by making the
appropriate selections in the Setup screens.
Time-limited display of messages
In order to access recent messages quickly the Show softkey can be used to show
only NAVTEX messages that have been received in the selected time period (last
4 hours, last 12 hours etc)
SETUP MODE
To enter Setup mode, press and hold the ENTER key for 3 seconds.
All of the user-editable setup parameters are stored in non-volatile memory and will
be unchanged after a power cycle, unless otherwise stated in the descriptions of each
individual page.
To exit from Setup mode and return to normal operating mode, press and hold the
ENTER key for 3 seconds until the display returns to normal operating mode, or press
the top softkey to select the next main page.
Note that message pop-ups do not appear while in Setup mode to ensure they do not
interrupt the editing of a configuration field. Always exit from Setup mode when you
have finished configuring the NAV-7 and return to normal mode before leaving the
NAV-7 unattended.
Page 14
NAVTEX message headers
At the beginning of each NAVTEX message there is a message header which
identifies the source and nature of message, time and date of reception, received
frequency and error rate.
For example:
KA59 14:16
19-Jul
518
0%
Receiver error rate
Received frequency
UTC date
UTC time
Message identifier
KA59
Serial number
Message category
Transmitting Station
In the Message Index display only the message identifier is visible.
It is recommended that the User or Installer takes time to set up the NAV-7 to filter out
those stations and message categories that are not required. In this way the display is
kept uncluttered; only those messages that are required will be visible.
Messages are selected for display by the NAV-7’s software comparing the Station and
Message Category information encoded into the message identifier (eg KA in the
diagram above) with the filter settings entered by the user during setup.

Message filters
To enter setup mode, press and hold the ENTER key. After a few seconds the
Message filters page will be displayed.
Page 16
This page can be used to indicate that messages from specified Transmitting Stations
or of specified Message Categories should NOT be displayed, stored or output as
required.
Each receiver has its own separate set of message filters; pressing the Select
XXXX kHz RECEIVER softkey cycles round the available receivers. The message
filter settings are all non-volatile and will be unchanged after a power cycle.
By default only message categories ‘A’ to ‘F’, ‘H’, ‘J’ to ‘L’, ‘V’ and ‘Z’ are enabled for
all Transmitting Stations. This is indicated by the check boxes for categories ‘G’, ‘I’,
‘M’ to ‘U’ and ‘W’ to ‘Y’ all being marked to indicate that they are being filtered out.
In order to deselect a Transmitting Station or Message Category, navigate to the
relevant checkbox using the pad (, , and keys) and press ENTER. The
checkbox will then be marked to indicate that the Transmitting Station (or Message
Category, as appropriate) is now deselected and will not appear on the display.
Note that deselecting a Message Category (say ‘I’) in the top row (labelled ‘All’) will
remove Message Category ‘I’ from all Transmitting Stations. To disable message
categories from a specific station identity (eg ‘K’), scroll down until the selection panel
for ‘K’ is displayed, then select the appropriate check box. Deselecting the first
message category (labelled ‘*’) will toggle the state of all Message Categories from
the selected Station.
Message categories ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘D’ and ‘L’ cannot be individually controlled. If all
message categories for a station are deselected then categories ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘D’ and ‘L’ will
also be inhibited – so the station will be completely disabled. If at least one message
category is enabled for a particular station, then messages ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘D’ and ‘L’ will also
be enabled for that station.
There are three sets of message filter options for every Transmitting Station and
Message Category. The ‘STORE’ filter indicates that the selected message shall be
neither displayed nor stored in the non-volatile memory. The ‘IBS’ filter indicates that
the message shall not be sent to the IBS port on reception (if output of NRX
sentences to the IBS port is enabled). The ‘PRINT’ filter indicates that the selected
message should not be sent to the printer on reception (if printer output is enabled).
Note that the ENTER key toggles the value of any check box from checked to
unchecked and back again. Similarly, toggling any check box in the ‘All’ row, or in the
column headed ‘*’ will toggle the other entries in the row or column as appropriate.

Setup mode: Receiver options
The Setup mode: Receiver options page contains diagnostics to assist with
installing and fault finding the NAV-7.
The lower part of the display is a monitor area which shows all received NAVTEX
characters in real time from the receiver selected as the monitor source, including the
phasing character (Ф) and receive character error symbol (), regardless of
transmitting station and message category filter settings.

SYSTEM ALARMS
An alarm event state will always generate a message for sending to an IBS or remote
alarm panel as well as actuating the NAV-7’s remote alarm relay contacts.
The front panel LED and the buzzer are programmable – see Setup mode:
System options. Consequently, these indicators may or may not activate to
indicate an alarm.
The NAV-7 may generate alarms with the following alarm numbers:
Alarm
number
Alarm text
001
NAVTEX: Navigational warning
002
NAVTEX: Meteorological warning
003
NAVTEX: Search and rescue information
004
NAVTEX: Receiver (x) malfunction
006
NAVTEX: General failure
052
NAVTEX: Antenna error
053
NAVTEX: Antenna overload
RECEIVER MONITORING
The NAV-7 continuously monitors the signals being received, and generates a
“Receiver (x) malfunction” alarm (ID code 004) should any receiver appear to be
operating incorrectly. The “x” in the alarm message is 1 for the 490 kHz receiver; 2 for
the 518 kHz receiver and 3 for the 4209.5 kHz receiver.
Serial interfaces
The NAV-7 has two IEC 61162-2 compatible serial interfaces which can be used to
connect the NAV-7 to other equipment such as an integrated bridge system or a PC
running charting software. The IEC 61162-2 serial interfaces also allow for the
connection of a serial printer. The integrated bridge system should be connected to
the IBS port of the NAV-7 (using the 15-way D-type socket at the rear).
Printer Operation (option)
When the ‘Printer mode’ setting on the Setup mode : Serial options page is
set to ‘On Receipt’, the NAV-7 outputs every message to the printer as it is received,
subject to the control of the message filters. In this mode, the NAV-7 operates in a
similar manner to a traditional ‘paper-based’ NAVTEX receiver.
However, in order to conserve paper, when the ‘Printer mode’ setting on the
Setup mode : Serial options page is set to ‘On Demand’, the NAV-7 will only
print messages when instructed to do so.
To print all messages as they are received:
Set the ‘Printer mode’ setting to ‘On receipt’
Page 22
Ensure all the ‘PRINT’ checkboxes for all stations and message categories on the
message filters page for each receiver are not checked
To print all stored messages from a specified receiver:
Ensure all the ‘PRINT’ checkboxes for all stations and message categories on the
message filters page for each receiver are not checked
Press the ‘Print Messages’ softkey on each of the Message filters pages to
print out all the messages for the corresponding receiver
To print messages from selected stations and message categories as they are
received:
Set the ‘Printer mode’ setting to ‘On receipt’
Use the message filters to filter out the unwanted stations and message categories
To print individual messages only on demand:
Set the ‘Printer mode’ setting to ‘On demand’
While viewing the full text of a message, press the ‘Print Message’ softkey
Note that this will always print the current message, irrespective of the settings of
the message filters
To print all messages from specified locations or specified message categories
only on demand:
Set the ‘Printer mode’ setting to ‘On demand’
Set the ‘PRINT’ checkboxes on the Message filters page to filter out the
unwanted stations and message categories
Press the ‘Print Messages’ softkey to print out all the messages which are not to be
filtered out.
Note that this will only print out the messages for the current receiver. To print all
the messages for each receiver it is necessary to operate the ‘Print Messages’
softkey on each of the Message filters pages in turn.

Safety Warning
The NAV-7 has been designed and manufactured to be completely safe
when used in accordance with the instructions given in this manual. To
ensure that the complete installation is safe, it is essential that a fuse or
circuit breaker is installed in the power supply cable as described in the
Installation section of this manual.
Isolation between the power supply connections and any other connection to the
NAV-7 is 1 kV minimum.
The DC power source should comply with IMO guidelines for the class of vessel
concerned. National authorities and classification societies may have their own power
supply requirements; these should also be considered.
Signal cable connections
As shown in the table above, the NAV-7 may be connected to different types of
peripheral units including IBS & INS serial ports and printers.
The signal connections are all connected via a serial RS422 type interface; data rates
are selectable at 4800, 38400 or 115200 baud.
In some cases, particularly in retrofit installations, it may not be possible to connect
the NAV-7 directly to the required source/destination for serial data, because some
equipment does not provide the IEC 61162-2 (NMEA) sentences required by the
NAV-7 unit. In such cases a protocol converter is required between the sensor and
the NAV-7. Converters are available from different manufacturers, either as direct
protocol converters or frequently as repeater instruments for the sensor.
IEC 61162-1 alarm message example
The alarm number and text are output as part of a standard ALR sentence format, for
example:
$CRALR,<time>,004,A,A,NAVTEX: Meteorological warning*<checksum>
Page 29
Signal line termination
RS422 signal lines may need termination resistors at the far end of the serial cable
connected to the NAV-7, depending on the length of connecting cable and the rate of
data transmission. Both the IBS and the NMEA ports in the NAV-7 have inbuilt 100Ω
termination resistors for both Tx and Rx.
Whether termination is required depends on many factors, particularly the length of
the signal cable and the environment in which the equipment is operating. The
principle is shown in the sketch:
Listener
(may need
termination)
Talker
(NAV-7)
Terminating
resistor
Ground cable
screen at NAV-7
ONLY
There is only one talker per twisted pair; there can be several listeners. The intention
is that terminations must be provided by the devices at the ends of the line, regardless
of whether they are listeners or the talker, and that no other device should provide a
termination.
Since the NAV-7 contains internal termination, it MUST be at the end of the line and
NOT in the middle.
It is good practice to use screened cables in all ship cable installations. Take care to
connect the cable screen to ship’s ground at one end only of the cable, as connecting
at both ends may cause ground loops and interference to the signals. The cable
screen should not be connected to any part of the NAV-7.
Connecting to the IBS serial interface
The display connection cable is supplied ready for use, and needs only to be plugged
into the appropriate connector on the NAV-7.
Display cable: Six twisted pairs, screened, PVC sheathed.
For lengths to 200 meters, use 0.22 mm2 (7/32); Belden
8106 or equivalent.
The connections to the15-pin socket on the NAV-7 are
given below. Note that the cable screen should not be
connected to any part of the NAV-7.

The auxiliary alarm contact is capable of switching up to 24 V DC at up to 1 A
(inductive load). The contacts are not connected to any internal voltages.
•
The power supply input is isolated from the case and antenna. It must remain
within the range 10.8 – 31.2 V DC (12/24 V DC nominal) at all times.
Connecting a Printer
The recommended external printer option is the Seiko DPU-414; the default printer
parameters are set correctly for this model. The printer should be connected to the
NMEA port of the NAV-7 (the 9-way D-type socket at the rear):
DPU-414 pin 3 (RxD) to NAV-7 pin 7 (TxA)
DPU-414 pin 5 (Gnd) to NAV-7 pin 2 (TxB)
Page 33
After connecting the printer, set the 'Printer port' parameter to 'NMEA port' on the
Setup mode : Serial options page and ensure that the 'Bridge port' and
'Alarm port' parameters are set to either 'IBS' or 'None'. Set the ‘NMEA port speed’ to
4800.
The printer is powered by the mains adaptor supplied and must be configured for
correct operation. The standard default settings for the printer should be used, except
for the following:
SW-1
SW-2
SW-3
SW-3
Set for serial interface (not parallel)
Set for English (not Japanese)
Set for XON/XOFF control (not H/W BUSY)
Set for 4800bps (not 75bps)
Refer to the DPU-414 manual for details of how to set these parameters.
The compass safe distance for the printer is 1.0 m.
The printer should be secured to prevent it moving during operation. The use of
adhesive foam pads is recommended.
ANTENNA INSTALLATION
Selecting a suitable antenna
The NAV-7 receives transmissions on three frequencies. 518 kHz transmissions are
in International English; 490 kHz and 4209.5 kHz transmissions may be in a local
language.
To receive on all frequencies the NAV-7 must be used with a wide frequency
(400 kHz to 5 MHz) antenna that covers 518 kHz, 490 kHz and 4209.5 kHz.
If you have purchased the NAV-7 receiver without an antenna then a suitable active
NAVTEX antenna should be used. McMurdo recommends the 905-05 as described in
the following section.
If an alternative antenna type is used it must be a low impedance 50 ohm
antenna or an antenna with a 50 ohm matching network. A mis-matched or high
impedance whip or wire antenna should not be used as the operational range of
NAVTEX reception may be greatly reduced; it is also important that the antenna is
capable of reception over the frequency range specified above.
Wire or long whip antennas must be fitted with a 50 ohm matching transformer.
Important, disable the NAV-7 antenna power setting – refer to Setup – Receiver
mode for details. If in any doubt a qualified GMDSS installer should be consulted.
Page 34
Important
NAVTEX antennas must be mounted clear of obstructions and at least
0.5 metres away from other antennas.
Where practical avoid locating the NAVTEX antenna close to MF / HF
transmitting antennas or VHF / AIS antennas.
Ensure that antennas cannot be snagged by mooring warps or running
rigging or engulfed by green water.
Antennas should always be mounted vertically in an elevated position.
Installation of the tri-channel NAVTEX antenna
Metal, rigging or other antennae must not be located in the 'NO GO cone' surrounding
the upper part.
Use the mounting bracket supplied; an alternative mounting kit may be purchased if
the mounting arrangement is unsuitable for your installation.
Attach the clamping brackets to the antenna mounting adapter and use the clamping
arrangement to fix to a suitable vertical tube.
Page 35
Typical installation of
active antenna
Thread the PL259 connector end of the coax cable through the antenna mounting
adapter and secure the connector to the antenna 1" threaded adapter.
Slide the rubber boot over the PL259 connector; if desired, it may be filled with
silicone grease for a better weatherproof seal.
Screw the antenna down into the antenna mounting adapter.
Ensure that the mounting adapter is connected to ground. If necessary, connect a
grounding wire, 2.5 mm2 minimum, to a suitable ground point.
Page 36
Installation of the antenna cable
Start routing the antenna cable at the antenna end.
Where the cable passes through bulkheads or decks, waterproof deck glands should
be installed. Securely fasten the cable against vibration using plastic cable tie wraps.
Complete routing of the antenna cable at the NAV-7 TNC connector.
Fitting the TNC connector
A TNC connector is supplied as part of the NAV-7 Receiver Kit.
•
Place the rubber boot, gland nut, washer and rubber seal onto cable.
Remove the outer insulation for a distance of 8mm.
•
Slide the cable braid sleeve over the screen braid, fold the braid back and
trim off extra braid.
•
Strip 2.5mm of the inner insulation to
expose the centre conductor.
•
Solder the pin onto the centre conductor.
•
Assemble the connector and tighten
the gland nut. Push the rubber boot
securely over the gland nut.
Rubber boot
Ru
Extending the antenna coax cable
If required, the coaxial cable may be extended with 50 ohm coaxial cable and
connectors. The maximum cable length should not exceed 100 m. Ensure that any
cable joints are well secured and waterproofed using self-amalgamating (rubber) tape.
Cable should be RG-58 / RG-67 / RG-213 / RG-214 grade or better; connectors
should be suitable RF types (TNC, BNC, etc).
Testing the tri-channel active antenna installation
By default the NAV-7 provides a regulated 12 V DC (nom) 100 mA output to provide
power for an active antenna such as the one supplied as part of a NAV-7 System.
If you are using an alternative active antenna please check that it is compatible with
this power output. If it is not, then an external power supply interface will be required.
Your antenna supplier should be able to provide this.
Page 37
WARNING
Take care not to apply power to the antenna TNC connector
from an external supply
Switch on the NAV-7 by applying power (12 V DC or 24 V DC) via a circuit breaker or
fuse.
There will be a few seconds delay whilst the software loads the contents of the
NAVTEX message store during which time the front panel red LED will blink.
The LCD display backlight will come on and the NAV-7 start-up screen will be shown.
If the antenna fault icon appears along the top of the display, switch off immediately
and check for a short circuit at the antenna, the TNC connector or any other RF
connections in-between. If the fault persists then please follow the trouble shooting
guide in this manual.
Passive antenna installation
The NAV-7 regulated 12 V DC 100 mA output should be disabled for passive antenna
installations or for installations using a matching transformer.
NOTE: This should be done the first time that power is applied to the NAV-7
BEFORE the antenna is connected.
Switch on the NAV-7 by applying power (12 V DC or 24 V DC) via a circuit breaker or
fuse.
There will be a few seconds delay whilst the software loads the contents of the
NAVTEX message store during which time the front panel red LED will blink.

Testing a 905-05 tri-channel active antenna active antenna
If it is suspected that reception is being compromised by the antenna performance,
the antenna should be checked for electrical damage.
Disconnect the antenna from the NAV-7 by unscrewing the TNC connector at the
back of the NAV-7.
Using a DVM set on resistance, measure across the TNC RF connector from the
centre pin to the outer ferrule, looking back up towards the antenna.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MEASURE THE RESISTANCE
OF THE TNC SOCKET ON THE NAV-7.
A good antenna will show a reading in the range 1500 – 2000 ohms.
A failed antenna will show a reading < 1000 ohms.
If a reading of greater than 5000 ohms is measured, then there is a continuity problem
with the connector or cable; these should be checked for damage or misconnection.
Note that these resistance values only apply to a 905-05 active antenna as supplied
by McMurdo. Other active antennas will have different resistance readings; consult
the supplier in order to check such antennas.

END OF LIFE STATEMENT
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive aims to minimise
any adverse impact of electronic equipment on the environment, both during the
product lifetime and when it becomes waste. Within the European Union this
legislation is mandated by Directive 2002/96/EC, and there is similar legislation in
most other continents. The directive applies to all electronic products such as IT,
household appliances, portable electronics etc., and imposes requirements to collect,
treat, recover and recycle each product at its end of life. Electronic end-user products
must also carry a WEEE label (as below) and recovery and recycling information has
to be provided to the recycler.
This product may contain lead and brominated flame
retardants (BFRs), both in the housing material and circuit
boards.
In keeping with the directive, McMurdo strongly
recommends that this product be disposed of in a sensible
and considerate manner. For example, do not simply
discard the product in the domestic waste. Instead take it to
a civil recycling facility, or contact McMurdo for advice.
