2. Drain (screen).
3. Bonded (preferred) or non-bonded RF ground.
4. Power supply or battery.

Implementation
If several items require grounding, they may first be connected
to a single local point (e.g. within a switch panel), with this point
connected via a single, appropriately-rated conductor, to the boat's
common ground. The preferred minimum requirement for the path
to ground (bonded or non-bonded) is via a flat tinned copper braid,
with a 30 A rating (1/4 inch) or greater. If this is not possible, an
equivalent stranded wire conductor maybe used, rated as follows:
 for runs of <1 m (3 ft), use 6 mm2 (#10 AWG) or greater.
 for runs of >1 m (3 ft), use 8 mm2 (#8 AWG) or greater.
In any grounding system, always keep the length of connecting
braid or wires as short as possible.

The following table provides recommended total power cable lengths

cables from the battery isolator switch or DC distribution panel to the
VCM100. Exceeding these lengths may cause unreliable operation.

 Note: If the required extensions result in unacceptably large
 diameter cables, use two or more smaller gauge wires to achieve
 the required copper wire cross-section. For example, using two
 pairs of 2 mm2 cables is equivalent to using two single 4 mm2
 cables.

Planing hull vessels, and some displacement hull vessels, adopt a
higher bow angle when the vessel is at cruising speed. This may
raise the radar's main radiation angle, and can cause poor detection
of nearby targets. It may be necessary to compensate for the bow
rise to ensure optimum target detection. This can be achieved by
fitting a wedge or washers between the mounting platform and the
base of the radar scanner, so that the radar beam remains parallel                                 1

Mounting the VCM100
Before mounting the unit, ensure that you have:
 Selected a suitable location.
 Identified the cable connections and route that the cables will take.
 Note: Do NOT connect any cables to the power supply until the
 following steps have been completed.

1. Check the selected location for the unit. The VCM100 requires a
   clear, flat area with suitable space for routing the cables below
   the unit.
2. Hold the VCM100 in place in the required mounting location.
3. Using a pencil, mark the drilling area inside the mounting lug on
   each side of the VCM100 unit.
4. Using a 3 mm drill bit, drill a hole through the pencil marks.
5. Align the VCM100 mounting lugs with the drill holes.
6. Hold the VCM100 in place.
7. Using a suitable screwdriver, screw the self-tapping mounting
   screws through the mounting lug holes, into the drilled holes.
8. Connect the cables, according to the instructions provided in
   this handbook.

    If the supplied studs are not long enough for the mounting
    surface thickness, use M10 stainless steel, grade A4-70 studding
    of a suitable length.

    attached to the lifting eyes, raise the pedestal over the mounting
    surface. Carefully lower into position, taking care that the studs
    pass through the holes without damaging the threads. Ensure
    that the front of the pedestal is pointing towards the bow of the
    vessel.

 contact with the delicate protruding coaxial pin. This is a critical
 component and should be treated with caution. Follow all the
 instructions provided below, and ensure that the alignment guides
 are used.

1. Fit the 4 threaded alignment guides to the studs on the underside
   of the antenna. Ensure a close fit. The alignment guides are          Pedestal
   essential to help prevent damage to the coaxial pin.
2. Remove the protective cap from the antenna shaft. Retain the          M8 plain washer
   cap for future use.                                                   M8 spring washer

4. Lift the antenna into position, ensuring it is in the correct
   orientation and that the threaded alignment guides are fitted.
   Carefully align and slowly lower the antenna.
5. Once the antenna is in position, remove the alignment guides.
6. Grease the 4 securing studs with the supplied Denso paste.
7. Use the 4 nuts and associated washers to secure the antenna to
   the pedestal, as shown in the following diagram. Tighten each
   nut to 10 Nm (7.4 lb ft) torque.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
