Wotname, I will be calling on you.....No I dont have an HF installed yet, but will have one going in not long after launch (I aint going to Tassie without) . The basic principle I have used is keep it tight. The battery bank and important gear
are all within 750 mm of cable.(seriously) That is the whole lot. Computer/ radios/ radar/panel/batteries. It is so much easier when you design it yourself : ) I am not that worried at this stage with local emi between gear
. and have no problems with line loss. The engine
however is a healthy (alt) 1.5 meters. I guess in answer to your question I would try running off the buss bar first to keep it neat ! Given that I would only have to re run an extra 300 mm of wire for a direct connection it is really not a problem. I am not at all an expert in any kind of radio installation
. At work here we make electronic equipment
along with a whole pile of other wonderful and goofy gear for people with disabilities (us) and people who we classify as having disabilities. The "we" bit is the royal "we" because my electronics is limited.
ps because the radios are going to be sitting on top of the switch panel. If I got problems then I GOT BIG FELLA PROBLEMS......
