    Tuning the Radar Read the system manual, also read other system manuals for additional insight. Two close bearings, however, such as two sides of a small island, are generally not a very good fix even using visual bearings. Then as you approach, you can tell without further reckoning when you are at the minimum distance off. See the Ship's Log for more.

    In this process, you plot your GPS position on the chart, then use parallel rulers and dividers to check the range and bearing to what might be good radar targets in range. We would see his green starboard running light. Immensely thankful for our trusty radar, we were able to pick up the entrance to the Canal on the screen. Numbers on the marks ascend when traveling from sea to harbor--if you don't have a compass and become disoriented on the water, you will always know you are heading upstream if the buoy numbers get larger as you travel. The length of this line is the true speed of the target.

    The more complex operations, such as choosing the change of course to make a specific CPA or related problems, are usually better done as transfer plotting on the maneuvering board. Practice is the key factor for good work in this area. Commonly referred to as "NUN" buoys. When looking for targets at your maximum range, turn up the gain temporarily to a more continuous pattern of speckles ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. For many practical applications, a quick plot on the radar screen will provide adequate information for safe efficient operation - at least as far as the basic collision avoidance operation is concerned, which is a solution of the RMD to find the course, speed, and aspect of the radar traffic.

Measure this off from the landmark on the chart and you have your position. Using parallel rules lined up with the correct angles on the compass rose on the chart, pencil in the bearing lines back from both these features, and where the lines cross is, theoretically, your approximate position.

Turn it on, and all targets get larger. If something moves straight up or down the screen, then it is pointing exactly the same direction as you but is going faster or slower respectively. This can be converted to a speed of yards per microsecond. If you were on a heading offor example, and you observed a target at 7.

The Coast Guard works constantly to keep aids on station and functioning properly, but obstacles to perfect performance are so great that complete reliability is impossible.

If something moves diagonally from you, then both its course and speed are different from yours. To plot your course, pencil in a line from your present position to your destination, or to a point where you need to turn to avoid an obstruction, go around a headland or island, etc.

WIEGEL: In one of the panel's planning sessions for this meeting, a representative of the Coast Guard mentioned that one piece of information the navigator would like to have about an area is the prevailing currents.

When you choose the optimum course, the CPA occurs when the storm center crosses your stern. If it is moving downscreen at an SRM that is greater than yours, it is headed towards you at a speed equal to SRM minus your speed.

To be resolved, two objects at the same bearing must be separated by more than yards per microsecond of pulse length. An alternative is just to tie or rubber-band a pencil onto your dividers and use that.

Overconfidence can cause many problems, especially in the minutes immediately following an electronics failure when you may need to act quickly to avoid a hazard. That is, using the compass rose on the chart, draw a line emanating from the landmarks in that direction.

How well a landmark shows up on the radar depends on its range and bearing, but a so called good target would be less sensitive to this. The max. Regardless of the location, buoys and beacons are placed in very specific locations, to mark either a particular side of a waterway, or some other navigational feature.

We arrived at Reedy Point near midnight, very very confusing lights. This is a control that should be kept at minimum or off unless needed. Then plot your lines of position on the chart exactly as you would if you had taken compass bearings to the landmarks.

Draw a line from this point to the second position of the target. If aspect increases as the vessel approaches us, it will pass ahead of us.

The new radar user will welcome this book, the experienced user will appreciate it. In general, the key to chart navigation with radar is to coordinate it with other piloting aids, especially with GPS and depth sounder.

Radar resolution has two separate factors: bearing resolution and range resolution. There are current charts, of course, but as you know, very often the difference between the actual and the predicted currents is significant.

Below are a few of the differences from the federal system you should know about. Only use floating aids for use as a navigation fix when you cannot see a fixed point of reference. Antonin Svoboda. What the radar can do that the GPS cannot is warn of collision risk with moving targets.

Others will undoubtedly occur to you to meet specific navigation problems. Sometimes better range and bearing resolution can be achieved by reducing the gain and sometimes reducing the gain will help reduce clutter from rain or snow.

Finally, it's a good idea to be aware of other aids to navigation, as used by traditional mariners for hundreds of years.

This can be as simple as estimating current speeds by observing the action of moving water on a nearby buoy or lobster or crab pot float. When you are familiar with your boat's motion and speed. Pulse radar systems act as the eyes of a ship during periods of reduced visibility and are thus one of the most important navigational aids.

Increasingly, information obtained from radar is now processed by computers to create an automatic anti-collision device (Automatic Radar Plotting Aid - ARPA) to give advance warning of potential navigation risk.
