I'm wondering what your thoughts are as using this as an SSB
Radio onboard, rather than with a permanent mounted one.
To be honest I don't know much about this SSB
when it comes to distance it will cover compared to a permanently mounted one.
All I want it for is to be able to listen to long range weather
forecasts, radio stations and to pop in a grab bag if the circumstance arose and I had to abandon ship.
