LBS show guide are not saying where Navico will be! they are there and I guess somewhere in the usual electronics alley.

Polwart, I would much rather stand in fron of a 0.1 w continuous wave than 2kw of pulsed power any day!

Current compatible products are: Lowrance HDS (5,7,8,10), Northstar 8000i M121 M84,Simrad GB40 NX40 NX45

And I think that might well be warranted - but your (Navico's) marketting literature is specifically intended to imply to the layman that the "Broadband radar" uses 20,000x less power and so is 20,000x less dangerous!

A 20,000 reduction in transmission power, yes. A 20,000 reduction in current, no. Current is reduced by not effectively eliminated.

The organisers of the METS show in Amsterdam last November were sufficiently impressed by the product that they officially sanctioned the radar to be used "live" inside the hall, something that is never done at any indoor show. Not sure if the LIBS organisers will allow this or not next week, waits to be seen.

However, as with everything there is a risk, but if you can reduce it to be almost negligible then that is the best one can do.

Have a look here http://www.panbo.com. Was posted a few weeks ago, but if I was going to go for a radar, I'd certainly be looking very keenly at it. I gather they actually had to reduce it's sensitivity otherwise it would look right through rain storms without showing them.
