Details



The MA-500TR is a class B AIS transponder that offers modern navigation safety while matching the clean look of Icom's award-winning VHF and SSB radios. Give your helm a handsome, harmonious look for fraction of the price. If you want to contact another vessel, you no longer need to locate and punch in its 9-digit MMSI number - the MA-500TR does it automatically. AIS information is displayed on the MA-500TR's own modest (yet clear and bold) screen or, for those who want a larger screen, in an NMEA-standard data stream for use by third-party chartplotters or other onboard nav gear. When you want the best, get the best. Get Icom. Simply the best.

The MA-500TR is a Class B AIS transponder for Non-SOLAS vessels such as pleasure craft, work-boat and small vessels. Your vessels information will automatically be transmitted at fixed intervals or under base station control. The MA-500TR receives dual AIS channels (Ch. 87B and Ch. 88B) simultaneously and receives both Class A and Class B AIS information. Transmitted information by MA-500TR is:

  • MMSI code
  • Vessel name
  • Call sign
  • Type of ship
  • GPS antenna position
  • Ship's position
  • SOG (Speed over ground)
  • COG (Course over ground)
  • UTC date and time
  • GPS antenna type
  • PA (Position Accuracy)

    Simple operation
    The Plotter display looks like a marine radar display. North-up, course-up and range zoom from 0.125 NM to 24 NM are supported. The Target list display shows all detected AIS equipped vessels and targets. The Danger list display shows a list of vessels that are within 6 NM CPA and 60 minutes TCPA from your vessel. The Danger list can be sorted by CPA or TCPA order. In addition to these display types, the Detail screen shows various information about the selected AIS target.

    CPA and TCPA for collision-risk management
    When a vessel comes into the CPA and TCPA range, the vessel icon blinks on the Plotter dispaly and emits a beep sound. When connected to external audio equipment installed on the deck tower, the collision alarm function will alert you even when you are away from the AIS transponder.

    Individual DSC call
    When connected to a compatible Icom VHF radio. It's easy to make an individual DSC call. Select a vessel using the MA-500TR's cusor keys and then push the "DSC" button on the MA-500TR. It is not required to input an MMSI number manually.

    100 Waypoints memory
    Up to 100 waypoints can be stored on the waypoint list. The "MOB" button allows you to set a waypoint on your current position instantly.

    Safety-related message
    When the MA-500TR receives a safetey-related message from a Class A AIS transponder, the message icon appears on the Plotter display. Up to 20 received DSC messages are automatically stored in the log memory.

    3-line NMEA input/output
    The MA-500TR has 15-pin D-SUB connector providing 3-lines of NMEA input/output on the rear panel. The supplied NMEA connector cable simplifies the installation and connection to the VHF radio and other navigation equipment.

    GPS receiver comes with MA-500TR
    The MX-5000 GPS receiver is a 12 channel parallel GPS receiver with SBAS function.

    The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

    With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

    Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

    William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

    A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

    You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
