Question about earth plates replacement

Willem Kroes
 

Hi fellow Amelians,


The earth plates on my SM 2K need to be replaced (the bronze 'bubbles' are gone for more than 60%). The plates are connected to the antenna tuner of the ssb transceiver.

My question: how is the installation of the plates done. Can I expect a laminated bronze plate inside with screw threads tapped?
Or is there only a cable connection and the attachment of the plates must be done with self tapping screws?

I am not on my boat now and I want to know how to instruct the mechanic of the boat yard.

Fair winds to you all,

Willem Kroes
