I work as a supplier of marine electronics and because of this i often end up with stuff that probably has some neat diy applications. I'm not interested in using it as intended, mostly because i don't have a boat.
Some of the stuff even work just fine, they're just worn or no longer meets todays regulations. So, any suggestions on what to do with VHF radios, radars, echosounders, and all sorts of antennae?
I've always thought while I've been on board that one guy with a VHF radio could completely fuck up a port if he wanted to by just constantly transmitting.
I don't recommend that though.
- Invertor, charger, batteries: put towards an off-grid solar power setup, stealth-van power, RV power, home backup power in case of power failure
- Stereo, speakers: they are essentially car stereos and speakers, so put them in a car
- 12V fridge: stealth van, RV
- WiFi booster, antenna: steal WiFi
>i don't have a boat.
Lets all chip in and buy OP a boat.
i was an Electronics tech in the CG. I seriously doubt this would happen. Most of them are not capable of even properly working the electronics on their own boats. They do have direction finding equipment but it rarely works. In reality if you spammed one channel people would just start using a different one.
Which part of Nigeria? I didn't find it too bad but the SPM we were at wasn't in a very populated area.
Yeah, Europe is pretty great on the whole for being professional on radio, and I'd assume Scandinavia would be the same.
