Tips for Selecting a Radar Range

  • Determine what information you need to see on the Radar screen.

    For example, do you need information about nearby weather conditions or targets and traffic, or are you more concerned about distant weather conditions?

  • Assess the environmental conditions where the radar is being used.

    Especially in inclement weather, longer-range radar signals can increase the clutter on the Radar screen and make it more difficult to view information about shorter-range targets. In rain, shorter-range radar signals can enable you to view information about nearby objects more effectively, if the rain clutter setting is configured optimally.

  • Select the shortest effective range, given your reason for using radar and the present environmental conditions.
