Helix 8 Chirp Mega SI+ G4N Coverage Contradiction
« on: January 12, 2021, 09:07:05 PM »
In the Helix manual, on page 44, the area of coverage for 800KHz SI is shown as 45 degrees.  However, on page 270 (specifications), the area of coverage for 800KHz SI is listed as 86 degrees.  Which is correct?

455kHz (and MEGA) SI beams are 86 x 2 (1 left and 1 right)
800kHz SI beams are 45 x 2 (1 left and 1 right)
