hf dsc antenna - make and model

we currently in tunisia and coming back to the usa for a couple of weeks - new grandson -- yea

anyway while there i am getting a bunch of boat parts to bring back and would like to put on a dsc antenna for our hf radio
we have an icom 802 with a gam electronics anteanna -- i really do not want to put a 16' antenna on and that is all i seem to be able to find --

one more question if i can -- i can not find thru deck water proof connectors -- tried defender and wm - but maybe i am not putting in the right search function

thanks to all
just our thoughts and opinions

Re: hf dsc antenna - make and model

Antenna I use:
Metz Communication General Coverage/WeatherFax Antenna

$73 + $21 for rail mount:

If the thru-deck is for the coax, I would use a clam-shell and not terminate the coax at the deck.
Blue Sea Cable Clams

(not associated with pyacht in any way, just using as examples)
