    5.3 What can the fishfinder show me? When you first view the fishfinder application, an image representing the echoes seen by the DSM is displayed. As time passes this image scrolls from right to left and becomes a record of the echoes seen. The images at the right hand side of the display are therefore the most recent.

A rocky or uneven bottom or a wreck produces an irregular image with peaks and troughs The dark layers indicate a good echo;...

  • Page 135 Side lobes Side lobe patterns are produced by small amounts of energy from the transmitted pulses that are radiated outside the narrow main beam. The effects of side lobes are most noticeable with targets at short ranges (normally below 3 nm), and in particular with larger objects. Side lobe echoes form either arcs on the radar screen similar to range rings, or a series of echoes forming a broken arc.
  • Page 136 C-Series Display Reference Manual Multiple echoes Multiple echoes are not very common but can occur if there is a large target with a wide vertical surface at a comparatively short range. The transmitted signal will be reflected back and forth between the target and your own ship, resulting in multiple echoes, displayed beyond the range of the true target echo, but on the same bearing.
  • Page 137 Chapter 6: Using the Radar Rain or snow clutter The radar can see echoes from rain or snow. Returns from storm areas and rain squalls consist of countless small echoes that continuously change size, intensity and position.
