[LW11] Wireless wind transducer frequency interference
Hi all,

Hoping someone may be able to assist. Has anyone ever heard of frequency interference on these instruments?

I've heard of 2 cases so far with european customers losing wind data when approaching Caribbean shores. One person has actually been told by a European Raymarine dealer that is likely to happen and there is a fix.

any ideas?

Many thanks,
Rom

RE: [LW11] Wireless wind transducer frequency interference
Dear Rom ,

I assume you are referring to our Raymarine wireless range. The instruments operate on a different frequency in the Americas than when in Europe. You can change this by following the instructions below;

What Frequency does my Tacktick product work on?
Tacktick Micronet products operate on 2 frequencies:

916MHz - USA, Canada, South America, Autralasia, Japan.

869MHz - UK, Europe, Africa.

These different frequencies are required to operate within the legally defined bands in the relevant countries.

All displays manufactured since January 2008 can be changed via the keypad and transmitters (hull, wind, nmea) are "Global Frequency Response" from November 2007. Products manufactured before these dates should be returned to Tacktick for update should a frequency change be required.

To Change Frequency:

Press and hold key 2 for 2 seconds to enter setup.

Scroll down using key 1 to view the Health chapter.

Step right using key 4 to display the units own software version.

Press and hold key 3 for 5 seconds to enter frequency selection.

Press key 2 to make the selection flash*.

Use key 3 and 4 to change to the required frequency.

Press and hold key 2 to set the required frequency.

Power down the system.

On the next power up the complete network will operate on the selected frequency.

*The default frequency for a display is indicated on the serial number label. Setting the software switch to "OFF" will allow the display to operate at the default frequency.

Many Thanks
Louise

Hi Louise,

Thank you for the detailed response. Makes a lot of sense. Out of interest, why do some frequencies work only on this side of the Atlantic and Vice Versa?

Thanks,
Rom
