If I have to ask them how much power it needs, or what it costs, does that mean I can't afford it??  :lol:

To me its a bad place to do business with from the start.  I called 2 different numbers and 5 different extensions.  All just leave your name and number and I will get back to you.

If you can't answer the phone, you don't need my business.  Folks wonder why they can't stay afloat.

That portable got me to thinking...  Don't some ships and personal yachts have a small weather radar on them? Wonder what prices those go for?  Having a small radar spinning around on the roof of the house, how cool would that be?   :mrgreen:

Probably just that Homeland Security tap on your line causing some problems.   ;) :lol:

$600 to $6000+
Unfortunately good marine radars pride themselves on seeing through the rain...

That is not a quote for the portable doppler, that is just some price ranges for marine radars...

Hi Dimitris & Andrew,

I just had a nice phone conversation with the president of the Co., Don La Point.

It is hard to get any info. before you speak with him and reply through an email with answers to his questions.  Government security.

He will not even quote prices on the phone.  I have responded to the questions he asked and will be getting all of the information in the mail with a bunch of literature..

I did find out this, the units come with the mast and rigging pictured.  It all comes in a case 18" x 30" and takes less than an hr. to set up.

The 600 is not Doppler but shows 3 colors.  The 700XD is real Doppler and the 700DP is Dual Polarized.

Will have more info when it gets hear.
