Re: Any experience with Furuno DRS4W 4 kW Wireless Radar ??

Yeah, I had seen Panbo
Interesting that he did not discuss using the unit, just the concept.
Ben is very dismissive of stuff he does not like (such as telling me that SSB was obsolete technology, although I was getting gribs and email free in mid ocean with it).

The absence of other replies on this site is telling. Seems few people are interested in the wireless radar.
Fortunately we found a dumb loose connection in our 12 year old radar, so s is good for a while yet.

Eventually a good broadband unit is on the list. Unfortunately Furono are still using magnetrons which puts me off, although their good reputation is a plus
