I'm wondering what your thoughts are as using this as an SSB Radio onboard, rather than with a permanent mounted one.

To be honest I don't know much about this SSB when it comes to distance it will cover compared to a permanently mounted one.

All I want it for is to be able to listen to long range weather forecasts, radio stations and to pop in a grab bag if the circumstance arose and I had to abandon ship.
