Page Principle Of Operation 1. Although the basic principles of radar were developed dur- ing World War II, echoes as an aid to naviga- tion is not a new development. Page Basic Operation 2. Long press: Terminates plotting of the target selected with the cursor. Control: Adjusts sensitivity. Switch: Temporarily erases heading line and north mark if displayed. Page Display Indications And Markers 2. The control panel lights and a timer displays the time remaining for warm up of the magne- tron the device which produces radar pulses , counting down from to Page Selecting The Range Note 1: Availability of a particular display item depends on incoming data.

Note 2: When Range to Waypoint reaches 0. Note 3: When cross track error exceeds 1 nm on either side, the XTE mark starts blinking. If the control is set too low, targets will be hid- den in the clutter, while if it is set too high, both sea clutter and targets will disappear from the display. Page Measuring The Bearing 2. By cursor Operate the omnipad to bisect the target with the cursor intersection.

The bearing to the tar- get appears at the bottom of the display. EBL1 Page Zoom 2. Select location with the cursor. Page Menu Operation 3. To open or close the menu, press the [MENU] key. You can select items on the menu with the omnipad.

When the elapsed time clock counts up to that time the elapsed time display is reset to zero and trail begins again.

Page Selecting Pulsewidth 3. Select level desired by operating the omnipad. Press the [MENU] key to close the menu. IR and level selected appears at the bottom right corner on the display when the interfer- ence rejection circuit is turned on. Page Watchman Asterisk blinking Guard zone to set Drag cursor here. Figure How to set the guard zone Silencing the audible alarm Any radar targets violating the guard zone will trigger the audible alarm.

Any repair work is best left to a qualified technician. Table Life expectancy of magnetrons Model Type Code no. Page Installation 1. Page 40 Radome cover Figure Antenna unit Mounting platform Holes for antenna unit: The mounting surface must be parallel with the waterline and provided with five holes whose dimensions are shown in the outline drawing attached at the end of this manual.

The unit is adjusted so a target echo returned from the bow direction will be shown on the zero degree heading line position on the Page 41 6.
