Broadband Radar

Has anyone seen the new Broadband Radar in action or have any info on it both good or bad?* The only system that it's mated with so far are Northstar, Simrad, and I believe Lowrance.* I'm not very familiar with either one, nor have I used either one.* Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

RE: Broadband Radar

Broadband will be the cat's meow when it finally hits the streets. For anything less than 5 miles (fog and night runs) it will be "as good as daylight" say the current users and testers. The problem? Too cheap so all the radar suppliers will be dissing it big time.

RE: Broadband Radar

Thanks for the replies on the Radar. If we go with the broadband radar we'll probably mate it up with the Northstar and network it between the upper station and the pilot house. What say you all? Is the Northstar a good choice or should we stay away from it. How easy is it to use. Any user info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Tom

After reading my post...I deleted it because it's one of the "dumbest things" I've ever said!
