English term or phrase: deaf sounder

un ancien "signalman" qui a servi sur un navire de sauvetage de sous-marins visite une dernière fois ce navire avant qu'on le coule (pour en faire un récif artificiel). Il décrit la salle où il travaillait et parle notamment d'un "deaf sounder", mais je n'arrive pas à trouver ce que c'est. Auriez-vous une idée ?

"I served aboard from 1984 to 1986. I was actually a Signalman and this is where my chart table sat. You know, we had our Deaf sounder, we had weather information and a bridge watch, the office of the deck and two bridge lookouts."
