I have been looking for free training software. More specifically a radar trainer simulator.
Do any of you know of a site to get any free boating software downloads.

Captain Kirk,


I have not seen any Software that offers any great training for Radar (ARPA) operations.  If you go to Http:// they have a decent online traing tool that is free and can give a beginner the basics.  Otherwise I highly recommend attending a martime accademy like S.T.A.R. Center for a real time training. They have a full integrated bridge that simulates radar and  full display capabilites.
