Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SSB Antenna
Germain Jean-Pierre <jgermain@...>
I have a new SSB ICOM 801E with Shakespeare dedicated HF antenna. I have an insulated stabilising ring attached to the STBD side of the solar panels. I think if you look inside the starboard side of the aft lazarette, you will find the factory installed ground (attached to the big grounding plate on the STBD side of your rudder). My tuner is located there and is connected via a short lead to the stern mounted antenna.
IIRC, Amel does not like an insulated backstay as an antenna.
