2. RADAR OPERATION 2.20 Echo Averaging The echo average feature, which requires a Model 18x4/19x4 series network radar, effectively suppresses sea clutter. Echoes received from stable targets such as ships appear on the screen at almost the same position during every rotation of the antenna. On the other hand, unstable echoes such as sea clutter appear at random positions.
2.21 Outputting TLL Data Target position data can be output to units of the network and shown on their plotter screen with the TLL mark (X). This function requires position and heading data. 1. Operate the Trackball to place the cursor on the target whose position you wish to output.
2. RADAR OPERATION 2.22 Guard Alarm The guard alarm allows the operator to set the desired range and bearing for a guard zone. When ships, islands, landmasses, etc. violate the guard zone, an audio alarm sounds and the offending target blinks to call the operator’s attention. 2.22.1 Setting a guard alarm zone To set a guard alarm zone, set the radar to transmit and do the following: 1.
Note 1: When the radar range is less than the guard zone range “G1 (G2) IN” or “G1 (G2) OUT” changes to “G1 (G2) ***.” The guard alarm function is not available while this indication appears. Note 2: If the network radar is set to standby while the guard alarm is active, the guard alarm is cancelled.
2. RADAR OPERATION Note: When the watchman is activated and no guard zone is active, the message “PLEASE SET GUARD ZONE. PUSH ANY KEY TO CONTINUE.” appears. Press any key and then set a guard zone. 2.23.3 Setting watchman stand-by interval The watchman standby interval, that is, the number of minutes the radar is in standby, can be set to 5, 10 or 20 minutes as follows: 1.
2.25 Waypoint Marker A waypoint marker, showing the location of the destination waypoint set on the plotter, may be inscribed on the radar display. Waypoint marker 1. If not already shown, press the HIDE/SHOW key to display the radar soft keys. 2.
When the radar source is an ARP-equipped Model 18x4/19x4 series network radar, you can manually and automatically acquire and track ten targets. Once a target is acquired automatically or manually it is automatically tracked within 0.1 to 16 nm. If the FURUNO heading sensor PG-1000 is used, the data sentence “RMC” is necessary.

2. RADAR OPERATION 2.27 Interpreting the Radar Display 2.27.1 False echoes Occasionally echo signals appear on the screen at positions where there is no target or disappear even if there are targets. False target situations may be recognized, however, if you understand why they are displayed.
Shadow sector Funnels, stacks, masts, or derricks in the path of the antenna block the radar beam. If the angle subtended at the antenna is more than a few degrees, a non-detecting sector or blind spot may be produced. Within this sector, targets can not be detected. 2.27.2 SART (Search and Rescue Transponder) A Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) may be triggered by any X-Band (3 cm) radar within a range of approximately 8 nm.
2. RADAR OPERATION General procedure for detecting SART response 1. Use the range scale of 6 or 12 nm as the spacing between the SART responses is about 0.6 nm (1125 m) to distinguish the SART. 2. Turn off the automatic clutter suppression (if applicable). 3.
When GPS signal error is found, the following occurs depending on the device feeding position data: FURUNO BB GPS receiver: Alarm icon ( ) appears and the aural alarm sounds. Own ship marker blinks faster. Other GPS receiver: The message “NO GPS FIX” appears and is accompanied by the aural alarm and alarm icon.

4. VIDEO SOUNDER OPERATION 4.15 Interpreting the Sounder Display 4.15.1 Zero line The zero line (sometimes referred to as the transmission line) represents the transducer’s position, and moves off the screen when a deep phased range is used. 4.15.2 Bottom echo Echoes from the bottom are normally the strongest and are displayed in reddish-brown, but the color and width will vary with bottom composition, water depth, frequency, sensitivity, etc.
4.15.3 Fish school echoes Fish school echoes will generally be plotted between the zero line and the bottom. Usually the fish school/fish echo is weaker than the bottom echo because its reflection property is much smaller compared to the bottom. The size of the fish school can be ascertained from the density of the display.
