I was sitting in my reading/thinking spot this morning and began thinking about my sad electronic situation and what I really needed.
Ever one to think cheap and redneck, I got to thinking about the side imaging technology. I'm not seriously thinking about trying this, maybe, but was wondering about a standard transducer pointed to the side. I know the wide angle of the signal broadcast would make things read funny since it would pic up the bottom real soon and mess things up. Trying to fix that issue, I was thinking about a more upward tilt to get the bottom edge to run more parallel to the bottom. Knowing that would create a lot more of the signal to reach the surface, I had the questions.
What happens with the part of the signal that reaches the surface? How does it effect the image given?
I guess it goes back to the angle of the signal cone.
