This part of IEC 61097 specifies the minimum performance requirements, technical characteristics and type-testing requirements for narrowband telegraph equipment for the reception of navigational and meteorological information as required by Regulation IV/7.1.4 of the 1988 amendments to the 1974 International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), and which is associated with IEC 60945. When a requirement in this standard is different from IEC 60945, the requirement in this standard takes precedence.
This standard incorporates the performance standards of IMO Resolution MSC.148(77), the technical characteristics of ITU-R Recommendation M.540, takes account of the IMO Resolution A.694(17) and conforms with the ITU Radio Regulations where applicable.
All text of this standard, whose meaning is identical to that in
IMO Resolution MSC.148(77) and ITU-R Recommendation M.540 will be
