I have fcv 295 and simrad nse12 , my backup plotter is Northstar 6000I . I like to keep things simple .My b260 temp broke ,transducer still good. Gonna put A/B switch in and mount new b265 lh. I also have 1kw fcv 585 under the overhang..
The 265lh will give me wider angle when giant fishing.
Chirp systems emit a 'swept'-frequency signal, meaning that the transmitted signal is emitted over a period of time and over a set range of frequencies. This repeatable (transmitted) waveform can be varied in terms of pulse length, frequency bandwidth, and phase/amplitude. A matched filter, or correlation process, collapses the swept frequency modulated (FM) received signal into a pulse of short duration, maximizing the signal-to-noise-ratio (after Mosher and Simpkin, 1999). On some of the WHSC systems, tow vehicle depth, tow vehicle altitude, and vehicle pitch, roll and heading are digitally recorded during data acquisition, so that appropriate corrections can be made during data processing. The reflected signal is received by the same tuned transducer array that generates the outgoing acoustic energy.
ok warf rat, Mike, and all others. I have a furono 1150 which I love,Markes great but no idea what this chirp business is. can you help a brother out?
(it's not like the wicked tuna shit is it?)
will the 585fcv work with chirp technology or should i start thinking about replacing it with the 1100 or 295
