MR-1000R2_T2.qxd 4 04.2.24 10:22 Page 10 BASIC OPERATION The following are typical basic operation examples, which may hinder radar reception (sea clutter, precipitation interference and echoes from other radar). ■ RAIN function This function eliminates reflection echoes from rain, snow, fog etc. • Rotate the control fully counterclockwise to deactivate the control function. The RAIN indicator ( ) disappears. • NOTE: DO NOT reduce the reflection echoes too much, otherwise you may miss weaker targets.
MR-1000R2_T2.qxd 04.2.24 10:22 Page 11 BASIC OPERATION 4 ■ IR function Radar interference may appear when another ship’s radar is operating on the same frequency band in close proximity.

Knots (KT) or kilometers/hour (KM/h) are automatically selected in the normal screen (p. 4) by selecting nautical miles (NM) or kilometers (KM) respectively. To magnify the blips for easier viewing of small targets, the long pulse and echo stretch (p. 11) functions are available.

MR-1000R2_T2.qxd 04.2.24 10:22 Page 17 ALARM FUNCTION 6 The unit has an alarm function to protect your ship from collisions. If other ships or islands, etc. come into the preprogrammed alarm zone, the function alerts you with an alarm. You can set the desired range and bearing for an alarm zone. While the alarm function is activated, the power save function turns the CRT OFF until an alarm is given, to conserve power. ■ Alarm zone setting D Setting and using the alarm function (0.

MR-1000R2_T2.qxd 04.2.24 10:22 Page 21 BASIC RADAR THEORY 8 Radar uses a form of electromagnetic radiation, which like light, can be reflected. Because of this property, some objects may cause false echoes on the screen where in fact no targets actually exist. These echoes may appear if a large vessel, bridge, or tank is in proximity. Operators should be familiar with the effects of these phenomena. In some cases, echoes can be reduced.
MR-1000R2_T2.qxd 8 04.2.24 10:22 Page 22 BASIC RADAR THEORY ■ Multiple echoes Multiple echoes may appear when a short-range and strong echo is received from a ship, bridge, or breakwater. Multiple echoes will appear beyond the target’s true echo point on the same bearing of a large target. They can be reduced with proper adjustment of the [SEA]/[ ] control. See p. 10 for the [SEA]/[ ] control. False echoes True echo Own ship Another ship ■ Minimum range Detection at short range is very important.
MR-1000R2_T2.qxd 04.2.24 10:22 Page 23 BASIC RADAR THEORY 8 ■ Blind and Shadow sectors Blind or Shadow sectors may exist because of obstructions such as masts, derricks or stacks. An obstruction may throw either a complete or partial shadow as shown in the diagram below. If a target is in a shadow sector, target echoes may not appear on the screen. Shadow sector When tall and massive targets such as a large island are located at close range also shadowed without producing any echoes.
