Re: Triatic radio aerial.
I recall (but cannot find the reference at the moment, unfortunately), that the Triatic is the aerial for the reception (and transmission?) of DSC signals used by the SSB HF/MF radio. At least, that is how SM#396 is rigged (IC-M802).
For info, the recently decommissioned Furuno FAX-30 RFax/Navtex receiver (and not to be confused with a FA-30 RX-only AIS black-box) used a stand-alone whip-aerial located on the port-quarter.

First of all, thanks a great bunch for a fantastic feedback, which is greatly appreciated.
As a part of my standing rigging upgrade, this winter I have ordered from ACMO a new triatic with required isolators to potentially use it as SSB antenna, when and if I decide to invest in this system.
So incidentally I was wondering whether you could also advise me and other interested parties on the best SSB radio set currently available for sale.
Thank you very much,
