Raytheon ST-60 instruments
Well, I had my ST-60 instruments installed six month ago and have executed the "speed calibrations" more times then I can remember.
Unfortunately the behaviour vary from week to week and never are as consistant as my trusty electronic trailing log (and two GPS-units) that made ''sense" from day one.
The ST-60 system however is a sofisticated "networked" system and depend on the performance of each component to deliver useful calculated information.
I have begged and "crawled" for the Australian Raytheon distributer Oceantalk to let me borrow a ST-60 header unit so I can just snap it in and test the difference. They flatly refuse this or the "idea" that I have a hardware problem/software problem.
I feel cheated and at a loss to understand why they are so uncoperative. After all, it is just the ST-60 speed unit that I have problems with, and testing another one would be such darn simple way of getting ahead in finding the problem.
Is it me, Rytheon U.K. or Oceantalk, Australia that is the problem?
