Side Lobes
Side lobe patterns are produced by small amounts of energy from

target and your own ship resulting in multiple echoes the range of the true target echo but on the same bearing

minimized by careful selection of the scanner site prior to Clutter

analog radar scanner strongest target returns are displayed in
yellow with weaker returns in two shades of blue If using a digital

A receiveonly unit or a full transceiver a unit that sends and
receives
A VHF antenna this is usually supplied with the AIS system
A GPS to provide position data
A Compass although not essential will improve speed

How the fishfinder works
The fishfinder application uses a Digital Sounder Module DSM and
a suitable sonar transducer The DSM interprets signals from the A soft bottom mud or seaweed cover produces a wide line
The dark layer indicates a strong and builds up a detailed underwater view
The transducer is located on the bottom of the boat it sends pulses
of sound waves into the water and measures the time it takes for the
sound wave to travel to the bottom and back The returning echoes
A rocky or uneven bottom or a wreck produces an irregular
are affected by bottom structure and by any other objects in their image with peaks and troughs
path for example reefs wrecks shoals or fish
Colors are used on the display to indicate the strength of the returns
You can use this information to determine the bottom size of fish and other objects in the water such as debris or
air bubbles
D68552
Note Some transducers include additional sensors to measure
water temperature andor speed
The dark layers indicate a good echo the lighter areas indicate
weaker echoes This could mean that the upper layer is soft and
therefore allowing sound waves to pass to the more solid layer

It is also possible that the sound waves are making two hitting the seabed bouncing off the vessel then the seabed again This can happen if the
water is shallow the
seabed is hard or the gain is set influencing the sonar display
The quality and accuracy of the display can be influenced by a
number of factors including vessel speed depth object noise and transducer speed
The shape of the target changes along with your speed Slower
speeds return flatter more horizontal marks Higher speeds cause
the target to thicken and arch slightly until at fast speeds the a double vertical line

The number of target depths displayed is influenced by the fish The larger the target the larger the return on the fishfinder display
