Ship’s  Characteristics - 14220_339
Bridge Equipment, Continued Gyrocompass  Repeaters:  As  you  learned  in  chapter  2,  there  are several  gyro  repeaters  located  on  the  bridge.  In  the  SCC,  there  are normally  two  such  repeaters  for  the  helmsman  to  steer  the  ship  by.  One is  called  the  master  and  receives  its  signal  from  the  master gyrocompasses.  The  other  is  called  the  auxiliary  and  it  receives  its signal  from  the  auxiliary  gyrocompass.  Also,  the  magnetic  compass  is generally  located  directly  behind  the  SCC  where  the  helmsman  can  steer by it, if necessary. Shifting  Steering  Control:  In  emergency  situations,  steering  control may  be  shifted  to  after  steering  or  the  secondary  conning  station.  As  a rule,  whenever  the  ship  is  in  restricted  waters  or  conducting  underway replenishment,  after  steering  will  be  manned  by  a  master  helmsman  and helm  safety  officer.  If  the  helm  unit  on  the  bridge  were  to  fail,  the helmsman  could  immediately  shift  steering  control  to  after  steering. Step-by-step  instructions  for  shifting  steering  control  vary  from  ship  to ship.  The  engineering  officer  should  be  consulted  for  instructions. SCC  Alarms:  There  are  several  alarms  that  are  located  in  or  near  the SCC.  Among  these,  the  two  most  important  are  the  loss  of  steering alarm  and  the  gyrocompass  failure  alarm.  If  either  one  activates,  the OOD  should  be  notified  immediately. 11-6
