Weatherproof fax

Published: Wednesday 30 November 1994

Codan, an Australian company, has developed a device that can revolutionise the quality of FAX communication even in remote areas and under extreme weather conditions. Unlike present FAX machines, which use telephone and satellite communications, Codon's 9001 HF fax and data interface makes use of high frequency radio technology.

This device, which car be hooked up to any standard FAX machine and personal computer, automatically checks for degrdation in the signal quality due to atmospheric conditions and other common interferences. It scans the blocks of digitally-coded information and requests for repeating the information until it is satisfied the quality and accuracy of the message.
