Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Recommendation for an SSB technician in Western Med

Hi;

We had an intermittent VHF transmission/reception issue with our ICOM. We had several electronic techs look and non came up with an answer since it was intermittent and hard to duplicate.

We ran into a very old school tech in Malta that immediately diagnosed the issue to a failed filter INSIDE the VHF, replaced it for us and had it back on board in a day and charged us 50 euros for the entire effort.

It’s a day sail to Malta and they have other good services also.

If Malta is too far, we do have a contact in Licata Sicily as well that I found knowledgeable.

Let me know your preference and I will send you the contact information.

Consider installing an in-line filter on the antenna cable toward the automatic antenna tuner between the radio and auto-tuner. This will make a world of difference.

 

 

With best regards,

My Amel 55 is on the hard in Marina di Ragusa and I'm trying to line up an SSB specialist who can look at my installation this spring/summer as I make my way west in the Med to Gibraltar.  I seem to have a lot of RFI from the alternator, Mastervolt chargers, Solar installation, refrigerator etc and I'm also thinking that the grounding isn't the best.  Anyone have a recommendation for someone in Sicily, East Coast of Sardinia, Barcelona, Valencia, Gibraltar or in between?  Many thanks in advance!
