Additional information regarding Onwa Radar
Onwa Radar is manufactured with the Professional user in mind. Check the specification and you will see that it out-performs many radar sets produced for the leisure market. Of particular merit are the figures for beam width, think of beam-width as focus of the radar beam; something Onwa radars are particularly good at achieving. KR-1007 is just 4 degrees horizontal beam-width and 25 degrees vertical. The Open Arrays are even better, 120cm Open Array being just 1.9 degrees and the 180 cm Open Array an incredible 1.2 degrees.
Onwa KR-1007 34nm 4kW X-Band Radome. The Radome is quite large at 60 cm and this is because it is designed with the professional user in mind and has a large antenna within the dome to achieve a horizontal beam-width of just 4 degrees – compare this to other make radar designed for the leisure industry. However at 60 cm it is possibly more suitable for a power vessel and may be too large and heavy to consider mounting on the mast of a sailor. For a sailing boat consider mounting on a 10 foot pole on a stern quarter.
