My goodness,,, what a journey to find a forum that's active, sail/cruiser oriented, and full of electronic folks. And the good news is a lot of EE's as Hams.
Brief intro: Commercial
around 1972, 38 Hans Christian in 1980, friends live aboard in Puget Sound
. Fresh water
since, trailer sailors off and on, currently boatless :-(
Back on the search for a good trailer sailor for the Sound, in the process ended up with an antenna
tuner marked as "Mariner 1500". Can't find any documents on it at all. It's not likely to end up in a boat until retirement
, but on a beat Shasta with a wrist rocket antenna
and trees. Overall, like a boat with a poor ground.
So, any chance there is any documentation
, operators manual, schematics anything like that that someone would share, or a pdf somewhere? Even if the original manufacturer was still around I'd try that.
Appreciate any help...
