  • Page 66: Range Control

    • The short range scales provide greater detail of the radar echoes close to your vessel, and should be used as you approach the coastline, harbour or other vessels in the area.
  • Page 67: Determining Actual Radar Range

    ½ ¾ 1½ * The maximum range depends on your scanner type, as detailed in the Pathfinder Radar Scanner Owner’s Handbook. The number of range rings shown in the table is the number to the selected range. Additional range rings are displayed to the edge of the radar picture, at the standard ring interval for the current range, and are most noticeable when the centre is offset.
  • Page 68: Interpreting And Adjusting The Radar Picture

    High coastlines and mountainous coastal regions can be observed at the longest radar range. However, the first sight of land may be a mountain several miles inland from the coastline. The actual coastline may not appear on the radar until the vessel is close to the line of sight distance.
  • Page 69: Identifying False Echo Returns

    Side lobes have no effect on distant or small surface objects. However, the echo from a large object at short range may produce an arc on the radar screen similar to a range ring or a series of echoes forming a broken arc. Side-lobe echoes normally occur at ranges below 3nm, and can be reduced by adjusting the SEA control.
  • Page 70: Indirect Echoes

    Indirect Echoes There are several types of indirect echoes or ghost images. These sometimes have the appearance of true echoes, but in general they are intermittent and poorly defined. Indirect (false) echoes False echo Passing ship Multiple Echoes Multiple echoes appear if there is a large target with a wide vertical surface at a comparatively short range.
  • Page 71: Adjusting Gain, Sea Clutter And Rain Clutter

    If you change the settings, the new GAIN, SEA and TUNE modes (auto or manual ) and values remain set even when you turn the radar off and on again; Rain and FTC are reset to Off at power-on. The status bar indicates which controls are switched to Auto or On.
  • Page 72: Gain Control And Sea Control

    On long range settings, the gain should be set to give a slight speckle in the background of the radar picture. Do not set the gain too low, or you may miss small or weak targets.
  • Page 73: Tuning The Receiver

    Sea Clutter Control Radar returns from waves around your vessel can clutter the centre of the radar picture, making it difficult to detect real targets. Such sea clutter usually appears as multiple echoes on the display at short range scales, and the echoes are not repetitive or consistent in position.
  • Page 74: Rain Clutter Control, Using Rain And Ftc

    Rain Clutter Control, using RAIN and FTC 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. These returns sometimes appear as large hazy areas, depending on the intensity of the rainfall or snow in the storm cell.
  • Page 75: Changing The Targets Display

    Chapter 3 Standard Radar Operations Changing the Targets Display The Pathfinder Radar allows you to improve target visibility by changing the following: • Interference rejection • Target expansion • Target wakes These parameters are accessed from the default soft key TARGETS.
  • Page 76: Interference Rejection

    HSB Series LCD Display Interference Rejection Mutual radar interference is likely when two or more radar-equipped vessels are operating within range of each other. This usually appears as a series of small dots moving to and from the display centre in a straight line or a long, sweeping curve.
  • Page 77: Measuring Range And Bearing Using Vrm/Ebls

    A standard VRM is displayed as a circle with its centre on your vessel’s position, and it’s EBL is displayed as a line from the origin to the edge of the radar picture display. However, each pair can be floated, so that the origin can be moved.
  • Page 78: Measuring Range And Bearing To Target From Vessel

    • Measure the range and bearing between any two points on the radar, using the FLOAT function Note: An alternative method of measuring range and bearing is to use the cursor data box: If the cursor readout is set to display range and bearing (rather than Lat/Long), you can determine the range and bearing by moving the cursor over the target and checking the cursor data box readings.
