Re: Question on SSB Antenna Install

I agree with John. Take either ground with a wide copper strap. If time permits use both for optimum performance.

Re: Question on SSB Antenna Install

Ok so here's the rub the Sea222 and tuner I installed today came off ebay, got the radio and 1212B tuner cost a little over $500. I bought it to replace the Sea222 that came with the boat and stopped working for no apparent reason and considering Sea wanted $600.00 to bench test the components and the final bill could go much higher considering what they had to do, replacing the radio and tuner on ebay seemed like a good way to go. So prior to starting the installation today I powered up the unit to see it was working, lights come on, and the radio goes through its test modes and the channel is displayed, so ZI figure good to go and move ahead with the complete installation, once finish I sit down in the nav station and realize the display has gone dark, no sound, no nothing, this is the same thing that the other radio was doing, I took the housing off to check the fuses all good and put a tester to the circuit board and have juice. I am pulling my hair out and haven't the slightest idea how to proceed. I am wondering by messing around with the unit if I have somehow put it into some kind of sleep mode, help her is appreciated.

Re: Question on SSB Antenna Install

Cburger,

I'm sorry I don't have any experience with SEA 222. But these radios often find their way into HAM service. You might look around for some local HAM club web site. They may know someone with one of these radios. There may be a users manual and other info at rigreference.com.
