If your finish is milky I believe salt water has gotten to the thread via the thread tunnels around the guides, this will weaken the wraps and the finish on the thread will fail at some point. It...

Yamaha F60 mid idle miss

I have a Yamaha F60 on my Lund and it idles fine and runs WOT at 5800 rpm just fine and smooth as a kitten. However, from about 1,000 rpm to 2,500 rpm it runs a little rough and misses every now and...

Re: antenna solution?

Digital Antenna 800 series has the connector in the base of the antenna so you can supply your own coax. On my friends 2600 Striper that is how I wired the main antenna. Using a length of LMR 240...

Re: antenna solution?

I volunteer for a large group of salt water fisherman to test antennas. 100's of them. The problem is always the same - I can hear great, but know body ever returns my call, or they say I'm...

Re: antenna solution?

The digital antenna starts off with a higher grade coax and a pre-attached high quality connector. When they assemble the antenna they shrink wrap every electrical connection which makes it harder...

Re: Garmin GMR18HD and VHF Interference

Good device for sniffing electronic noise is an plain old AM transistor radio. Tune it to static and when you get close to a noise signal the static should get loud

Re: VHF/SSB ANTENNAS SUN BAKED....FIX??

I would test whatever you paint on those antennas for RF transparency. Take a cup fill with water, time how long to boil in the microwave. Paint cup with targeted material - repeat. If the time...

Re: VHF to Bluetooth

Sounder Power Output question

maybe this has been talked about here, but a question that always bugs me about sounders. Sounders (FF) are often stated with a particular power output, for instance the LCX 27c that I have is rated...

Re: icom422/lowrance lcx27 noise on channel 68

I just installed the exact combination on my boat and can hear the digital signal from the sounders NMEA output through the audio chain as well as the ping on the ducer. I've not had time to start...

Re: vhf cutting out

Sounds like an antenna system problem. Clean up the corrosion first as that can act like a diode. Than have the SWR measured. If it is still high - suspect the antenna. The problem you report is...

Re: VHF and channel 22Alpha

I thought a birdie was a transient caused by poor receiver design or a problem in the receiver circuit and not a stray radio signal. They can sound like a unmodulated carrier or dead carrier with...

Re: VHF radio transmit distance

One thing I'll add. While on 1/2 wave shouldn't outperform another 1/2 wave, some antennas are simply made batter than others. Up here in the NW many of our offshore skippers are tossing their...

Re: vhf always "busy" problem

Check to see if the ring on the coax connector is tight. Sometimes of the ring is loose the antenna will become very broad banded and pick up way more than it is supposed to. Also if you disconnect...

Re: Icom M-72 antenna- connector to longer antenna?
