Every radar I have ever used has a Stby setting. It would make absolutely no sense not to have one. It can take three minutes on some radars for it to warm up so you can Tx. If you need your radar fast and it is completely off...well then, your going to have to wait. So consider the downside of putting in a separate breaker for the magnetrons heating element on the radar....you may just need to get a relative motion line in a hurry as you see the lights of that 26 knot containership coming over the horizon.

Extra Radar cable- where to hide

Hi Guys,

Since getting my new Hunter 33 last month, I have been busy rigging up the boat with a help of friend and myself. The boat comes with a 13 meter radar cable, and the actual length required is only 7 meters, what I am going to do or hide the rest of the cables? The cables is not suppose to be cut? Your advice is much appreciated. Best Regards: SonnySoh

Just coil it up, secure it with cable ties, and tuck it away down below where it won't get abraded by anything. That's what the technicians did with mine.

The electrician that worked on our boat did the same thing.
