    Kuriosity killed the katt.
    Wait a minute...I'm owned by 3 cats.
    Quelching an old interest in sailing.
    Probably more kuriosity at my age than fact.
    Have to see where it leads me.

    Dear Paul,
    I would like to find out how to make a "sticky" thread for Opencpn "Plugin Links" to make it easier to find the appropriate thread for posting questions about specific plugins.

    Can you help me?

    A quick update - I did connect everything up and it seemed to work fine. I did not transmit from the ram mic though - kind of waiting to hear if you have anything to say.

    It was the case that when I spoke to ICOM about this situation they told me it would not work. It was too late in the day for me to call the SH tech support; I'll ask them on Monday

    Hello Paul. Since I have seen you write about electrical stuff on the forum I was wondering if you would be willing to try to answer a question for me regarding ram mics and cable connections?

    Basically my M504 went out and I am replacing it with a SH GX2200. I also got a ram mic for the SH, but in my attempt not to have to run the new remote cable, I just tried plugging the existing ICOM cable into the back of the radio. It looks to be a "standard" 8 pin, and it fit fine. I could also plug the SH ram mic into the ICOM socket on the steering pedestal. Is there any reason I need to use a proprietary cable for the ram mic? I realize the colors may not line up with the mfgr. list - but since there is a placement "detent" in each of the connections I am assuming that the electrical transmissions (mike, volume, DSC and AIS stuff, etc) would flow into the correct receptacle for the ram mic.

    Am I nuts?
    Thank you Paul. Typed IAS in haste. Appreciated.
