SP3300 Programming Guide

1 Introduction

This programming guide concerns the programming of the SP3300 Portable GMDSS

VHF radio.

The audience is intended to be Thrane & Thrane authorized service-personnel having received proper training. Basically, the program is self-explanatory. Please read the messages on the PC display carefully.

It is important to understand, that this programming utility also covers other models of radios which are not in the Thrane & Thrane product portfolio right now. Therefore, some functions are not allowed (no reaction on changes made).
