Enfernungsskale (distance scale) - what is the difference between the two states of this switch ? Which is better, left or right ?
At all, has it any interest in detecting ships ?

Another question:
Like previous, what is the difference between abfragen (requesting) and einstellen (adjusting) modes ?

Thank you !

On distance scale:

Left is the short scale ~5km
Right is the longer scale ~10.5km

In other words if you get a contact the horizontal line will read out on the appropiate scale (it also gives you a digital readout on the lower left.)

The 'anfragen' is continous sweep...leave it here and it will continue to sweep. 'Einstellen' is if you want to fix your radar in one direction on the compass. You can manipulate the directions (just like the sonar) by putting your mouse pointer on the wheel and rotating it...

...Just remember...if you have radar contact of a warship, they probably have radar contact on you...time to dive!
