The Mariners' Guide to VHF Ship-to-Ship & Ship-to-Shore Communication

A VHF radio is one of the most important tools on board a boat. Like any other tool, however, there are right ways and wrong ways to use it. The quickest way to determine the competence of a boater is not by his docking abilities but by his use of the radio.

Although the VHF radio is relatively easy to operate, there are some very important features about the use and operation that all boaters must know. The VHF radio is one of the most valuable pieces of safety equipment you can have onboard. It can be used to deliver a call for assistance, provide the latest weather reports and keep you in touch with other boats and marine facilities on the water.

This program covers the different types of VHF receivers available including the types of transmissions, range, power and specific features. It outlines the U. S. and International requirements and provides information on how to obtain a VHF license, permits and the Maritime Mobile Service Identity or MMSI numbers for DSC Radios.

Included are the different VHF channels and their uses along with information on how to monitor the radio. It provides specific, step-by-step instructions on how to place both emergency and non-emergency calls including Mayday Calls, Securite Calls and Pan-Pan Calls.

The Boaters Guide to Using Marine Radar

Learn HOW RADAR can assist you on the water, HOW TO USE IT as an aid to SAFE navigation & COLLISION avoidance

"In the hands of a knowledgeable user, radar is a valuable aid to safe navigation, allowing boaters to "see" through rain, darkness, poor visibility and fog."

Radar is the most interactive aid to navigation. Using it with competence demands far more expertise than with a GPS unit. The primary purpose of marine radar is to serve as an aid to collision avoidance. It can increase boaters' safety on the water more than any other electronic devise allowing boaters to "see" through rain, darkness, poor visibility and fog. It can confirm your position relative to landmarks and navigational aids and alert you to other vessels and coastal outlines.

However, the ultimate value of radar and all electronic equipment lies with the boater's ability to understand and properly use the information on the display.

Within the last few years the costs of radar units, especially the smaller LCD display units, have been substantially reduced, making it feasible even for small boats to take advantage of radar equipment.

This program teaches boaters' what radar is, how it works and how you can get the most from these important navigators. It teaches boaters how alarms can be set, to alert you that targets are entering a particular location or that your own boat is nearing a dangerous area. Echo trails can help you access the movement of targets relative to your own boat. Radar can also be used to determine your position to back up chart information, electronic aids to navigation and used to navigate to a specific location. For Fishermen, Radar is often used to locate sea birds that help them locate fish and improve their catch!

Teaches:
Principles of Radar:
• Types of Radar Antenna
• Types of Radar Displays
• What Radar - Can Do For You
• How Radar Works
• Radar System Configurations
• Radar Range

CATCH MORE FISH - HOW TO READ YOUR FISHFINDER LIKE AN EXPERT

No matter what boat or sonar, you can improve your catch by correctly interpreting and understanding your fishfinder. Fishfinders can really increase your catch if you know how to set them up properly and interpret them correctly. In order to properly interpret sonar, you must know how a fishfinder works. This program teaches anglers how to interpret the sonar returns shown on their fishfinder's display in a step-by-step, easy to understand manner.

Most anglers rely strictly on fish identification features on their fishfinder, which can show many objects as fish that are not actually fish. Any submerged object between the surface and the bottom capable of returning sound, such as a tree limb, may be shown as fish on the screen. Another common problem angler's face is fully understanding the cone angle and coverage of their transducer. The gain adjustment can vary from what is shown and not shown on the display. While automatic adjustments in range and gain are usually adequate for running a boat, they are usually inadequate for finding fish. It is therefore important to understand frequencies and how to manually adjust settings to get the most from your fishfinder.

  • Transducers
