The first high visibility display designed for ocean racing sailboats
was introduced by Brandstedt Controls Corp (Miami, Florida) in 1984.
The product was an off-shoot of the tractor trailer refrigeration unit
monitor by Mr Brandstedt (founder of Brandstedt Controls and Mayapple
Company), known as the T-Ticker®.
A patent was granted in 1984 for the T-Ticker®.
The sailboat application was not patented and a number of similar displays are now on the market. These mast mounted displays are also known as "BRANDSTEDTS" or "JUMBO REPEATERS" (Brandstedt Controls), "MAGNUMS" (Ockam) or "20/20'S" (B&G).
