Looking to add a radar reflector to the boat and as I typically do I look at what the commercial guys use. I see that many of them use the diamond shaped ones mounted on a mast or antenna. I see similar ones mounted on boats on this page as well. For those of you that have them have you done any informal testing and do you have any tips on purchasing and mounting? Thanks.

Documented commercial fishing vessels operating outside the boundary line are required to have them by law unless the rigging provides a radar signature at a distance of 6 miles.

Mr. Hardy is correct, the diamond shaped reflectors on high flyers. Thanks.
