Two transducers / depth finders problems?

2 posts in this topic

I see dual finders on boats but???I currently have a Uniden in dash digital depth readout just to the lower unit out of trouble and I will be installing a Hummingbird Parina 15 fish finder and I only have enough transducer cable to put them close or next to each other.I looked at their frequecency and it is the same I think? Hummingbird on single beam MHZ 200 with 83 MHZ dual Uniden is 200 MHZ is that the number to be concerned about? so if I put an off/on toggle to the Uniden to shut it down when I run the Hummingbird will that work? or am I looking for problems? I don't want to butcher up the boat then have to move stuff around after the fact.

Hi,

There will be no doubt that if you put two transducers close together that carry the same freqency you will get interference. if it is easy enough to put a switch on your uniden, I would suggest that.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
