Yes. There is a dedicated 20amp breaker for the SSB in the hanging locker by the nav station. This should go to the terminal label BLU. The SSB should be the only item on this circuit. From the terminal, you connect your 24v-12v step down isolated transformer and then connect the SSB to the transformer. I had a hard time finding an isolated transformer rated high enough for the power draw of the SSB. There are several discussions on this forum regarding this subject.

Thank you, find the BLU, blank terminal, I also have a circuit beaker at the side of the chart table market BLU as well. Is BLU a spare breaker/terminal for general use?
