Commercial Fishing

New and In stock, JRC Radar and Echo Sounders offer a wide range of features and are standalone, simple to use and highly reliable. 

Currently on display at Nautical Supplies, the new Echo Sounder model JFC-180, a blackbox style variable quad frequency unit, is the latest in JRC’s wide electronics range. Recently released, the unit is especially useful in rough seas, with heave compensation to accurately display in high waves or difficult conditions. The quad frequency technology displays 4 frequencies simultaneously, resulting in better targeting, and the keyboard settings allow for personalised menus and preferred display modes, remembering preferences whenever the unit is used.
