While fighting my way through connecting up out new 1824 radar / ploter I had the AIS and most of the nema data working properly although the AIS was still not showing on the MAxsea screen. . Yeah me! That is before a restart of all concerned left me with the radar acting rather strange. When it should be counting down for a start I get 4 little snow flakes in place of the numbers. I am trying to be Christmasie here since its that time of year. Any idea what this means? Is it one of those things where I should start making a noose and rigging it to the yards arm?
