Re: can't get any sound out of SSB

Shanty,
Hey, no worries!!!
Haven't we all done some dumb things??

As for the "motor boating" sound...

First off, please verify WHERE you are actually at...
Dominican Republic, I assume???

And, let me know if you are at anchor away from shore by at least 1/4 - 1/2 mile....or are you closer??
Or are you at a dock, marina, yacht club, boat yard, private dock, near houses/apts/businesses/industry/etc.
(give as much detail as you can!!!)


Secondly, please understand that truly immense amount of "radio noise" (RFI) that is generated these days by all sorts of crap, some on-board many boats and some on-land....(I'll go into MUCH more detail later, but just a few things are battery chargers, solar charge controllers, inverters, wall-wart chargers, digital clocks, fans, pumps, refrigerators, etc. etc...)




If you confirm exactly WHERE you are located and explain where/how you are anchored/docked, etc. I can give you many helpful details, but until then I'm waiting...
BTW, video #9 shows some RFI...but it's not a definitive video, as I don't really have RFI issues on-board to show..



fair winds..
