hi peter

i think that the ssb + at-140 + cable + antenna should cost in the usa up to about 3000 $. in europe it would cost more than 4000€. i dont know how much the installation could cost if you dont do it your self.

I am thinking of adding SSB to an Amel 54 as well - can anyone advise me f the rough order of magnitude cost of the whole system for that type of installation?

Best wishes

Hi thanks for the note. The 802 has worked just fine with Pactor 3 While there are some channels blocker we have had no issues. With respect to voltage we were not able to fine a 24 volt 802. We did use the Amel supplied 24 to 12 Sailor inverter/converter. As a note we are normally using the SSB with the gen set running.

The ICOM 802 is not approved for use in the EU

AND, if you buy one from the US, it will be transmit locked to the FCC approved channels.

There is a way to reprogram an 802 so that all channels are xmit need this if you want to use PACTOR on all available freqs.

I can post this document of anyone is interested...

AT-130 can work with 802 also no problem even tho AT-140 is recommended.

710 / 802 pull about 25-30Amps on xmit for a 24V system you need a converter that's min 350W

sm2k redlines have a BLU converter already fitted that can deal with that..Amel may be the best bet...

Hi there is no issue in getting you 802 shipped from Defender Industries. Most users use the 140 tuner they work great. Buy the SSB ant at the same time. You will of course need shielded cable and copper foil and a 24 to 12 volt inverter. The 802 only runs on 12 volts. And remember it pull 160 watts every time you transmit. Good luck are you getting the Pactor modem too.

hi all

i would like to install ssb radio icom m802 on my boat (amel 54), to order it from the usa and ship it to europe. i think also about using a separate antenna and not the back stay.
can someone advice me what automatic tuner i should use (at-130 or at-140)?
should i order also other options for the installation?
does someone know if there is any problem to ship it to europe?
what would be a good shop in the usa to order it?

thank you for your help
