Which HD / SuperHD open array pedestals support Bird Mode?

When initially introduced, HD and Super HD open array radar pedestals did not support Bird Mode. Later, the hardware design of the HD and Super HD radar pedestals was changed (enhanced) to support Bird Mode radar features when used in conjunction with Raymarine MFDs supporting Bird Mode radar features. Enhanced pedestals are distinguished from non-enhanced pedestals by the letter "E" following the pedestal's part number (ex. E52081 is the part number for a 4kW non-enhanced SHD pedestal, while E52081E is the part number for a 4kW SHD enhanced pedestal). Remanufactured pedestals are distinguished from non-enhanced pedestals by the letter "R" following the pedestal's part number (ex. E52081R is the part number for a re-manufactured 4kW non-enhanced SHD pedestal, while E52081ER is the part number for a remanufactured 4kW enhanced SHD pedestal). All current new production open array HD and Super HD pedestals feature the design enhancement required to support Bird Mode radar features.

Should one be considering whether to purchase a second hand or remanufactured HD / Super HD open array radar pedestal and additionally require the Bird Mode radar feature, then it is strongly recommended that one check the pedestal's part number to ensure that it includes the enhancement designation.
