hummingbird transducer interference ?

Recommended Posts

huckfin

Going to be replacing the 586c thats on the counsule with a 898. I would like to mount the 586 up front and have both transducer still transom mounted. Will both units function properly yet? I think I saw a way to run the 586 off of the 898 unit and was also wondering if anyone has any feed back on this.

settings. thanks

It has 200/83, same as your 898.

I would run your 586 with sonar set to 200/83 and use your 898 for side imaging and mapping. Which 898 did you get?

Or, you could sell me you 586 and i'll run it off of my trolling motor. wink

I got the 898c HD SI, Hoping to install this weekend. Thought about putting the transducer for the 586 on trolling motor, but that means the other half has to raise and lower trolling motor to use the locator. That being the case I would probably be better off just giving you the locator so as not to listen to the P & M ing.

On 2nd thought, the PtP is lower than i would like on the 586. Lowest i'd probably go is the 596 which is 4000ptp

Unless something has changed, the 898 ducer is always running both frequencies. You can't turn either 200 or 883 khz off. You can view either or both frequencies on the 898 through screen selections, so you could view 83 on the 898 and see no interference from the 586, which I assume runs the standard 200 khz. But the 586 will pick up the interference created from the 898 ducer. Try it and see how bad it is. There should be an adjustment on the 586 to filter out interference. Try it and see how bad it is. If you're only looking for a depth reading in the bow, it should be ok.

Yes, you can adjust the frequency you use on the 898cSI.

Ah, great question. I figured when i selected 83 or 200 instead of 83/200 that i was actually turning one frequency OFF. It is more likely that i am turning the VIEW off of that frequency. A call to HBIrd should clear that up.

No need to call HBird. Turn on both sonars at 200 khz and observe the interference (looks like rain on the screen). Then change the 898 to view only 83 khz. The other sonar will still show the interference from the 898 ducer firing at 200 khz.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
