New Raymarine ES128 sounder pics

Finally been able to give my new set up a crack. Raymarine ES128, CP470 Chirp Module and 1KW M265 Low/High In-Hull Transducer.

The Deep Pic we got 1 solid 8Bar Cod, the second we caught a pearl perch, small reds and big spangoes, third shot we caught small emperors and cods and the last 1 had solid hook ups but sharks were a pest with nice ground with bait it looks like to me.

 Looks to me like money well spent. Great pics. Are you just running the internal antenna on your e series? The tracks on my a series don't show up anywhere near as good. Always straight lines only.

 Why is there such a difference from 20 to 80m with a 1kw tranny? and is that really bottom lock?

 cheers

gday hilly, yer internal, you can change that not really sure where the settings is on your a series but you can change it so it track line updates every 2 seconds. you might have yours set on a certain distance

i think its all because of the gain and bottom lock compared to no bottom lock or zoom in that 20m pic, still alot of playing around to do.

 I've got the E127 with chirp and have had it for a couple of years and pretty happy with it albeit still learning. A question with yours do you use manual gain and TVG. If so what sort of setting do you use in the 40 - 70 meter zone. Appreciate any feed back u can provide. Thanks.
