Using GPS—2018-05-23 through 2018-05-23$50—Face to FaceView Details

Wed., 7-9 p.m., Great Lakes Campus Rm. 111. America's Boating Club seminar. GPS has become a common tool for navigation. However using GPS on the water is distinctly different from a moving map display in your car. Learn the principles of waypoint navigation and how to relate the GPS to your charts which provide essential information about what is around you. The seminar also shows you how to operate your GPS and what the buttons do, what the screens show, and how to access the functions you need. A handheld GPS is used as the demonstration model, but all GPS receivers function similarly. By the end, you will be able to store waypoints into your GPS, activate them for navigation, and use GPS to keep you on a safe, pre-qualified course of your choosing. You'll also get some tips for choosing a GPS if you don't currently own one.<br><br>

Using VHF & VHF/DSC Marine Radio—2018-06-04 through 2018-06-04$50—Face to FaceView Details

Mon, 7-9 pm, Great Lakes Campus Rm 111. VHF radio is the mainstay of coastal communication and essential for emergency communications. Digital Selective Calling (DSC) is rapidly becoming a reality as the Coast Guard Rescue 21 System operations go live. Alaskan stations will come on line in 2017. DSC vastly simplifies and improves rescue and routine call signaling--making it easier to make a call while the system frees up Channel 16 for essential communications. However, you need to know how to use it. This seminar answers those needs and explains basic VHF operation.
