Explanation: Indudablemente es un error tipográfico. En vez de "paro" y radioparo" debería decir "faro" y "radiofaro" (emisor de ondas herzianas que sirve para orientar a los aviones o barcos mediante determinadas señales)
With the advent of electronic navigational instruments, the task of navigation in seas and
skies has become easy and safe. The Radio Beacon is one of the electronic instruments which
aids the surface navigation for ships and acts as an alternative to conventional equipment such as
lighthouse. With present day technology, the Radio Beacon can be a powerful navigational aid
which provides good range and better accuracy.
The Radio Beacon (RACON) helps the ships to locate and identify themselves with the
nearby land. When ships approach land, they send RF signals to the RACON which is kept on land
nearby the sea at a suitable place. Upon receiving the signals from the ships the RACON quickly
processes and analyses them and if they are found proper, it sends back a code which is unique to
that particular place. When ships receive this code, they identify the land which they are
approaching and thus navigate themselves in proper direction. Today’s modern technology of
microprocessors, microcontrollers and digital signal processors give us the edge to make the
instruments fully automatic having intelligent and sophisticated controls. http://www.caip.rutgers.edu/~samian/racon.pdf
