Tri-Lens Radar Reflector

Has anyone got or know of a tri-lens radar reflector for sale?

Thanks

Reflectors

passive Radar reflectors on a Rib are about as useful as the male nipple.If you feel you need to be seen then think about an AIS Transponder or an active radar reflector.

agreed - but for coding they are required.

For coding purposes will any radar reflector not be sufficient? The tri-lens always seemed to get good reviews but I believe they stopped making them for some reason.

Akis, If you are serious about coding and therefore safety then I suggest you go down the active, rather than passive route. Try Echomax.

The MCA have issued guidance (MGN 389) about radar reflectors. They have clarified their guidance to state that, for small boat operators, you should have the best reflector you can rather than necessarily having one the complies with the ISO standard. A test was carried out on various reflectors and for passive reflectors, the Echomax 230 came out as a good compromise between price and performance.

As charliee has suggested, an active reflector is more effective than passive but it is on the assumption you have power available to it.
