Event description

Description

Radar is one of the most versatile systems of all of the marine electronics on your boat. Most boat owners only know how to use about 10% of the capabilities of their marine radar. The manuals that come with a radar system tell you what the buttons do, but not how to confidently use radar for both collision avoidance and navigation. In addition to learning the basics of radar operation participants will also learn:

  • New digital radar technologies are now available with many new capabilities

  • How to use your marine radar system while underway

  • Basic radar tuning and how to set up an older system

  • How to interpret the screen display and how to correlate it to navigational charts, the surrounding area, and other vessels around you including integrating AIS and full overlay

With this course you will have a new appreciation and competency with the radar system on your boat.
