Attribute: Radar wave length
Attribute type: A
The distance between two successive peaks (or other points of identical phase) on an electromagnetic wave in the radar band of the electromagnetic spectrum.
INT 1: IS 3.1-4;
the wavelength and the band code character is indicated;
In the case where two bands should be encoded, these should be separated by a comma.
Resolution: 0.01 m
'VV.VV' encodes the value of wavelength.
'B' encodes the band; each separated by a hyphen ('-')
the radar transponder beacon wavelength '3cm (X) - Band' is indicated as '0.03-X'
The attribute 'radar transponder beacon wavelength' encodes the specific wavelength at which a radar transponder beacon transmits.
Radar transponder beacons generally work on the following wavelengths:
- 3cm (X) - Band
- 10cm (S) - Band
Nevertheless, wavelengths outside the marine band are used.
