    I used to have one of these and thought it had to do with keeping further input of Hs, but never could see how that could be, once the averager stopped.  My Mk IX-A does the same thing.

    When using the US Navy MK 5 it is necessary to wind the averager fully so that the internal view blocking shade retracts from the field of view. This needs to be done whether in bubble mode or natural horizon mode. Does anyone know why this view blocking feature is needed ?
