    2) How to make best use of short pulse vs long pulse

    Dear Google...
    Please do my homework for me

      Tbh you probably are better using google as this site is full of snobby arseholes that would rather have one up on somebody than help out their fellow mariners

        You don't learn anything just asking for the answers though. At least showing a.bit of effort and thought would help.

        I'd happily.spend hours going through it all with them, of they made a bit more effort than just posting the questions without an attempt at answering it themselves?

            1) When you lower the gain, it reduces the amount by which the returning echoes and noise are amplified. If you have it set too low, then you may not pick up weak target echoes at all.

            Increasing rain clutter will cut of the trailing edge on target returns on all ranges. So in an area of precipitation, you will be able to see the target better, but the echo will be smaller.

            2) Short Pulse will give you better target definition. Long Pulse will give you better detection.
