NEXUS NX2600 DUAL CHANNEL (518K AND
490KHz) NAVTEX RECEIVER OPERATION MANUAL
Thank you for choosing NEXUS NX2600 NAVTEX receiver. The NAVTEX
receiver is used for receiving meteorological or navigational information via
a simple connection to any personal computer (PC) or a NEXUS NX2600
VHF transceiver.
1 INTRODUCTION
The NEXUS NAVTEX receiver is a complete NAVTEX receiver/decoder
unit, contained within a waterproof antenna unit. This unit outputs data in
RS422 format. This can output its data for display on the NEXUS NX2500
VHF radio in its ’NAVTEX mode’ OR on a PC running the NEXUS custom
software supplied. Alternatively it may be used by using the Hyperlink or
Terminal software supplied with Windows as standard*. It may also be
used by third party software such as Tsunamis etc who ask for and utilise
a NAVTEX input.
*The Terminal software utility
Windows98 2000 and Windows XP.
supplied
with
2 INSTALLATION
Mount the NAVTEX antenna unit onto any standard antenna base (a
choice is available allowing rail mounting/bracket mounting or mounting on
any flat surface – see your dealer for details). Site the antenna in a clear
position well clear of any sources of RF interference (this includes the PC
or NX2500 that it is connected to and any GPS/Radar antennas). A typical
installation on a yacht may be on the pushpit, on a power boat on top of
the wheelhouse or on the radar arch (either above or below the scanner).
The Antenna is supplied with 15 metres of interconnecting cable.
If you are connecting to a NEXUS NX2500 radio, simply connect the
antenna cable (4 pin mini DIN plug) into the GPS/NAVTEX/SPEAKER Plug
Cord (supplied) and then plug this into the socket labelled NAVTEX on the
interface lead supplied with the radio(see Fig.1).

Navtex NX2600
If you are connecting to a PC you will need a converter box (option) to
connect to the USB port of the PC and also supply a 12 Volt power source
to power the NAVTEX antenna (see Fig.2).
If you are connecting to a SILVA S15 radio, you will need a converter box
(option) plug the connector into the socket labelled NAVTEX on the
interface lead supplied with the radio(see Fig.2)
USING THE NEXUS NAVTEX WITH AN NX2500 VHF RADIO.
If you are using the NEXUS NAVTEX antenna in conjunction with the
NEXUS NX2500 VHF radio all you need to do is make a simple plug and
socket connection. Selection of stations and message types are carried out
on screen. See NX2500 owner’s manual for details.
To test the Navtex antenna connection, switch the NX2500 on and connect
the cable, you will hear a double beep and a NAVTEX test message will be
displayed on the NAVTEX screen. This is confirmation that the system is
operational. (see below):
To view the contents of the NAVTEX test message, please go to the
NAVTEX log, displayed as below:

Navtex NX2600
3 What types of message do I wish to receive –
Select by letter on the NX2500 or the PC Sw (see appendix 3).
It pays to be selective - The more selective you are the less likely you will
be swamped with irrelevant information from stations some distance away
from your vessel.
