FR8065 12.1" 6kW, 72nm UHD Radar System - Less Antenna with 20M Cable

State of the art signal processing an& UHD digital radar technology!

The 12.1" color radar FR8005 series features state of the art signal processing, which makes it easier to identify targets in heavy rain and poor visibility. The FR8005 radar can discern between rain and surface reflections, providing the ability to find and track the movement of rain clouds as well as removing unnecessary echoes. For tracking the movement of other vessels at sea, "True Motion Trails" can be displayed as well as AIS/TT target-tracking with a zoom display function. When the vessel is in motion, the radar echoes move smoothly on the main display thanks to the "True View Mode."

Target-Tracking Zoom Display Function
Even during rainfalls or severe weather conditions, radar echoes are clearly displayed, and unnecessary echoes can be removed instantly with ease. Compared with current radars (FR8002 series) the technology for removing sea, rain and snow clutter has been greatly enhanced utilizing FURUNO's state of the art knowledge in digital signal processing. When using the Target mode, vessels close by and vessels on intersecting courses are automatically displayed zoomed in. These targets will remain displayed for as long as they pose any concern. Target Trails are also displayed, making it easy for the user to determine the movements of individual vessels.

True Trail Mode
When using the True Trail Mode, moving objects will show up on the main screen with a colorful trail. These trails make it possible to see the movement of nearby vessels in the blink of an eye.

True View Mode
The radar echoes move smoothly on the main display thanks to the "True View Mode". The True View Mode is based on the head-up mode. During the radar sweep, the echoes move according to the heading of your ship. Since the echoes move in real-time, the discrepancy between an observed target and what is displayed on the radar screen is greatly reduced.

Full-Screen Mode & Off-Center Mode
Make use of the whole display surface with the Full-Screen mode, giving you more information when making important decisions. When combining Full-Screen mode with Off-Center mode any target or point of interest can be observed in detail. The overlay information can be turned off, to observe targets obstructed by the text as well as providing an unobstructed radar view.

Target Tracking and AIS Display
The Target Tracking (TT) feature continously tracks and provides positional information for up to ten targets. An AIS device-equipped FR8005 series radar can track target heading, name, speed and direction of movement. With AIS it is possible to identify and track the movement of other vessels in heavy fog, during nighttime and otherwise difficult conditions. Another benefit is that with AIS you can identify obscured targets that the radar signals cannot reach, giving you more time to act. AIS can display up to 100 targets simultaneously, TT can display up to 10 different targets simultaneously.

Standard Features:
  • 12.1" SVGA color LCD with echo colors of 32 levels
  • Wide viewing angle LCD for great visibility from any direction
  • One-touch auto-adjust settings for Gain/Sea clutter/Rain clutter
  • Optional 48 rpm high-speed antenna rotation displays information clearly in narrow passages and on high-speed vessels
  • Superior short range target detection capability
  • Advanced auto modes to automatically adjust gain, tuning and AC rain/sea for delivering the best available pictures
  • True motion echo trail
  • Display Modes: Head-up, Course-up, North-up, True View, True Trail
  • Up to three programmable radar settings can be selected to give the best radar performance in different sea conditions

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.
