    Weather Radar Tilt Knob

    Hello Roberto.

    I have been busy putting together my pedestal and I need to know whether the weather radar 'tilt knob' is 'switched' or 'smooth'. In other words when you turn the knob does it click into place for each angle (just like turing the range knob on the EFIS) or is it a smooth rotation (like using a potentiometer or encoder).

    Thank you,

    Darren Sugden

    Hey Darren,

    It is smooth like Potentiometer type smooth... it is not a rotary encoder but more like a pot to move the antena!!

    Regards,

    Roberto
