[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel54 SSB installation
When I bought my 54 she also missed the OEM AMEL whip.
I asked AMEL to send a new whip and they suggested to have a backstay antenna as it would be very difficult & cost prohibitive to ship an AMEL whip to NEW CALEDONIA.
So that’s what I did – reading the suggestions on this forum I will make some modifications but will stay with the backstay antenna.

We have a split lead antenna, that is put outside the back stay https://gamelectronicsinc.com/product/split-lead-gammckim-ssb/
Very easy to install, we have communicated with Chris Parker all the way between Hampton Virginia to Antigua and we heard him well as so did he with us
