The Radar Book
Effective Navigation and Collision AvoidanceBook - 2004
Author Kevin Monahan, an experienced captain and Canadian Coast Guard officer, presents the complete picture on how to maximize the use of a marine radar system for collision avoidance and navigation. By using practical examples, extensively illustrated with screen captures, the newcomer to radar as well as the experienced mariner will learn how to tune a radar system, interpret the display under real-life conditions, and take advantage of all of the built-in features and functions to use radar effectively as a real-time navigational tool. The 248-page book includes step-by-step examples of an actual trip, showing the radar display with the corresponding chart to show how to interpret the display in a variety of weather conditions. Today's next-generation radar systems, which combine the chart-plotter display, are also covered in this comprehensive explanation of marine radar systems, as well as tips and recommendations for purchasing and installing a new system.
