Re: Who likes their radar?

With radar power is King. After trying a 5kw unit you will never be satisfied with anything less. I prefer the older CRT units but they do take a lot of practice and better yet some training to get the most out of them. The better, older CRT units have all the major controls (FTC, STC, range, tune & gain) right up front on buttons or dials while the newer units have the essential controls buried under layers of menus. Of course if you just leave it on automatic all the time I guess it dosn't matter. Georgian College in Ontario used to have an 11 day radar course some years ago.
