I posted here before about this problem, and you helped. But the problem has returned! The first time the plug
at the tuner was reversed! Ooops! Got that straightened out and even had a transmission
confirmed with WLO Radio
. So we were pretty happy. Even though the reception
wasn't the greatest, I could hear her well enough to have a short conversation.
When I went back to use the radio
, the problem returned. It will not tune. We press 'tune' on the radio and the screen
blinks 'tune' ever so briefly before returning to 'thru usb'. When I use the mic, we see our ammeter jump up. (Our ammeter gauge is virtually useless, but it looks like it might be hitting 5A.)
I read in another post that we should not ground the transceiver with foil. Is that true? We did the mother of all ground-foil installs. 100' of ground foil including: 3 thru-hulls, keel
tank, "foil field" above the fuel tank
(but not touching it!). Did we overdo this? I read somewhere that by connecting all of these together we can run into electrolysis
issues. If that is true, what should we do -- cut the foil? Where?
I am one of the newbies to this device and while I am reading everything I can to come up to speed on it, it is still a steep learning
curve. So your patience would be appreciated. I am sure you 'pros' get a lot of these type of posts from us newbies. Hopefully I will learn enough from working with it to help someone else. But for now I am at the spoon-feeding stage! The other problem is the amount of info.
Thanks in advance for helping us out.
