Radar is the ultimate in electronic navigation aids. Other equipment may help you find your way across open water, but only radar will see you safely through a thick fog, showing you ships that may run you down, rocks you're trying to avoid, or the buoys that mark the channel to your berth.
This practical guide shows you how to get the best possible picture and how to interpret it. All the major techniques are explained in simple terms and illustrated with dual photos of the chart and radar screen to help you understand the similarities and differences.
Includes: Understanding the System, Interpreting the Screen, Navigating by Radar, Collision Avoidance, Blind Pilotage, and Installation and Maintenance.
