From the basic principles through to more in-depth expertise, this is your no-nonsense introduction to radar.

The book gives you sufficient information to understand what’s going on, then proceeds directly to basic radar use.

You will learn what radar does and doesn’t do and how to make simple adjustments to get a decent picture. There is more information on the various confusions and anomalies that the picture can present, progressing to the intricacies of a modern digital (raster) set. Finally, you will learn the key elements to consider when choosing and installing a radar system on your boat.
