Radar is line of sight, if the antenna front is tilted up when runn8ng the main bean will shot over targets. The farther from the target the higher the overshoot. Opposite if tilted down.

Radar should sit flat. What is the angle at 10kts?

10kts will more than likely have you bow high. What is the angle now?
