We shattered the 23,000 hour record today (also from a Furuno...FR-8100D to be exact). This picture is from an 1832 display we took in, fully functional, this system uses the same 4kw RSB-0071-057 radome every Navnet VX1 and VX2 1833c/1834c system uses.

This radar has been on for 2705.95 days or 7.41 years, and spinning for nearly 2/3 of that. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to say that this display won't last another 5-10 years easy.

Came off of a tug in working condition, we don't get much of the commercial stuff in, this was grouped with some surplus radar cables from a commercial electronics outfit out of Jacksonville...I'm used to seeing 500 hours, not 60,000!
