I have the typical SSB
setup, insulated backstay connected to antenna
tuner. I got my hands on a Furuno
NAVTEX reciever and would like to install it without adding the optional active antenna
coupler with whip. The manual says you can use an insulated backstay, but not if you also have an SSB
. Since the NAVTEX is a receive only unit, is it necessary to use an insulated backstay? Is there a good reason I can't connect the antenna lead to one of my chain plates, using a shroud
as a long wire antenna? Anyone here use a NAVTEX and SSB?
