Thank you for the constructive responses. especially the issue of Microwave
energy. Our radome will be mounted at a sufficient height to be out of the line of sight to the crew on board even whilst standing up.Also mounted on the central A frame it negates the rear squat effect when cruising to some degree.On my Rib I will be fortunate to have two A frames one aft and one above consul Previous sets have included the best from Raymarine in the form of the C120 although a very good set some menu functions which are essential can be tedious. I was interested to see the various sets you Ribsters are using right now , and was looking for more feedback before i make a very expensive mistake.If you wanted to see this twin A frame set up on one of our clients boats view www.parkerribs.com
and go to Baltic 7.5 here the set up can be seen in action.
My shortlist of sets are as follows Raymarine and Furuno although if there are others I should consider please advise.
Whilst on the subject of Radars and I wonder also what individuals views are on DSC/VHfs my last set on Platypus was a Icom 601 which was a very good unit with no problems . Any thoughts on the VHF market too ?
thanking you all
