The summer racing season has wound down, which means more opportunities to build your sailing knowledge and skills ahead of next year! To help you out with that, the YRA is happy to announce our next seminar in our series of popular Racer Socials. 

Please join us at Encinal Yacht Club in Alameda on October 19th for an informative talk on VHF Radios, including a talk by Eric Steinberg of Farallon Electronics, plus Andy Newell from OYRA and a representative from the USCG will be there for a DSC demonstration.

Topics of discussion will incude:

VHF Radios & DSC

  • What radios are available that have DSC functionality?
  • How do I use DSC?
  • What happens when DSC is used?
  • How do I get GPS into my house radio that has DSC but does not have built in GPS?
  • CoAx requirements

General Electronic Issues

  • How do I get electronics from different manufacturers to talk to each other?
  • How do I build a NEEMA 2000 network?
