I have installed new Icom
station which is roughly midships. My yacht has never had a SSB
I have a new backstay with insulators fitted.
The problem i'm having is a location for Icom
AT-140 auto antenna
tuner. Instruction book says install outside close to antenna
. Is outside necessary - I think it only says that as its fully waterproof.
I don't have anywhere suitable outside, plus i think it would be easy to damage.
The only suitable place i can find is in the cockpit
STB wet locker.
This would mean approx 3 metre aerial wire to backstay.
Possible problem is it would be located 150mm from shorepower 240 volt isolator switch & 500mm from diesel generator
. Would this be a problem.
This location would also be approx 1.2m from compass
Your advice would be greatly appreciated!
