Hi Richard,

I think the limit for normal freight is 6 feet and I believe the antenna is 21-23 feet long . it is only a few hundred dollars and the freight has to be at least $100 based upon previous European shipments.

Hi Eric you are right about buying here in the States. The Antenna unscrews into 3 parts and is easy to ship.

We just priced an 802 at Defender with 140, whip antenna and cable for under $2,700. All you then need is the mount for the antenna, wire, filters and installation hardware.

Hi yes one of the issues can be RF from a charger or for that matter an electric motor. We have a good ground, at least 3 filters on the SSB one each on the + and - sides as well one from the input the Pactor. We get southbound two on the US coast and as far as the crossing from the Canaries and the Azors. The Pactors claim to fame is the manner in which it unfiltered signals to get email and weather to has worked well in most conditions. One always has to consider what is going on with solar activity.

We use a Delphine smart charger with a Bata Marine gen set. The SSB in a long conversation with Herb can draw a lot of amps. So we make water, charge the battery bank and use the SSB all at the same time. This system has worked very well during any number trans Atlantics as well as to and from the Carbbiann Islands.

Hi Richard,
the info provided for sail mail tells us that there is a lot of interference to the SSB from battery chargers of any sort including alternators and I have certainly found it to be so when doing oceanic scheds. You can be in a situation where reception is unreadable, turn the charging off and it comes clear. Also SSB are very voltage sensitive, have your batteries fully charged before you use it to get best results.

Hi John,

I looked at the Softrider website. They have a huge choice of seats and swivel/slide mounts. Which ones did you get for the nav station and helm? How have they performed for you, and would you buy anything different if you had it to do over again?

Many thanks,

I changed the helmsmans and the nav seats using Softrider pedestals made in New Zealand.

That photo album is one of the first and is best found by clicking on “first� and then “previous� or by finding under “list�.The actual seats are standard found in most big chandleries.The table mount is Logun a Swedish fitting also widely available.

I had Garhauer make a spring loaded chair mount for our Maramu. We don't have as much space as the SM for a permanently mounted chair so I wanted something that tucked against the bulkhead when not in use. Have not fabricated the seat yet. Thinking of laminating 5 or 6 thin layers of wood for the bottom. No idea on the backrest yet. I got the idea from a Catalina that we built a set of sails for. Garhauer was reasonable and did a nice job. It was made a bit different than the ones they make for Catalina but same concept. One of these days I might even get it installed.

hi peter

i think that the ssb + at-140 + cable + antenna should cost in the usa up to about 3000 $. in europe it would cost more than 4000€. i dont know how much the installation could cost if you dont do it your self.

Hi thanks for the note. The 802 has worked just fine with Pactor 3 While there are some channels blocker we have had no issues. With respect to voltage we were not able to fine a 24 volt 802. We did use the Amel supplied 24 to 12 Sailor inverter/converter. As a note we are normally using the SSB with the gen set running.

There is a way to reprogram an 802 so that all channels are xmit programmable....you need this if you want to use PACTOR on all available freqs.

I can post this document of anyone is interested...

AT-130 can work with 802 also no problem even tho AT-140 is recommended.

710 / 802 pull about 25-30Amps on xmit @12V..so for a 24V system you need a converter that's min 350W

sm2k redlines have a BLU converter already fitted that can deal with that..Amel 54..dunno...amel@amel.fr may be the best bet...

Eric we have both ham and FCC channels on our set you spec the HAM stations when you buy it. The 802 is for sure a big step,up from the 710 we had years ago.

Re: [Amel] SSB instalation

Richard Piller <richard03801@...>
 

Hi yes one of the issues can be RF from a charger or for that matter an electric motor. We have a good ground, at least 3 filters on the SSB one each on the + and - sides as well one from the input the Pactor. We get southbound two on the US coast and as far as the crossing from the Canaries and the Azors. The Pactors claim to fame is the manner in which it unfiltered signals to get email and weather to has worked well in most conditions. One always has to consider what is going on with solar activity.

We use a Delphine smart charger with a Bata Marine gen set. The SSB in a long conversation with Herb can draw a lot of amps. So we make water, charge the battery bank and use the SSB all at the same time. This system has worked very well during any number trans Atlantics as well as to and from the Carbbiann Islands.

Hi Richard,
the info provided for sail mail tells us that there is a lot of interference to the SSB from battery chargers of any sort including alternators and I have certainly found it to be so when doing oceanic scheds. You can be in a situation where reception is unreadable, turn the charging off and it comes clear. Also SSB are very voltage sensitive, have your batteries fully charged before you use it to get best results.

Hi thanks for the note. The 802 has worked just fine with Pactor 3 While there are some channels blocker we have had no issues. With respect to voltage we were not able to fine a 24 volt 802. We did use the Amel supplied 24 to 12 Sailor inverter/converter. As a note we are normally using the SSB with the gen set running.

AND, if you buy one from the US, it will be transmit locked to the FCC approved channels.

There is a way to reprogram an 802 so that all channels are xmit programmable....you need this if you want to use PACTOR on all available freqs.

I can post this document of anyone is interested...

AT-130 can work with 802 also no problem even tho AT-140 is recommended.

710 / 802 pull about 25-30Amps on xmit @12V..so for a 24V system you need a converter that's min 350W

sm2k redlines have a BLU converter already fitted that can deal with that..Amel 54..dunno...amel@amel.fr may be the best bet...

Hi there is no issue in getting you 802 shipped from Defender Industries. Most users use the 140 tuner they work great. Buy the SSB ant at the same time. You will of course need shielded cable and copper foil and a 24 to 12 volt inverter. The 802 only runs on 12 volts. And remember it pull 160 watts every time you transmit. Good luck are you getting the Pactor modem too.

Radar Arch

seafeverofcuan <seafeverofcuan@...>
 

Some time ago there was a posting regarding a radar arch made by Teck Inox of La Rochelle and possibly supplied through Secteur Blanc. It included a dinghy lifting arm, solar panels and two D400 wind generators. Would anyone have any details or photographs
please?
Thank you.
