    Bob, it appears the files have been downloaded the maximum number of times allowed.

    Thanks Paul! I wasn't sure I could set up those downloads again. I'll bet those are more current versions of the articles too. I'll take down the other links.

    Mixing threads, but I just consolidated the two boxes of KVH parts into one and will bring it to the next meeting, which is November 16th.

    I decided to hang onto the heading sensors since they're still made. I'm a keypad short of having an entire SailComp 103AC system and I think they still make the SailComp keypads. That was always a good system for 'round the buoys stuff.

    On the other hand there's yet another Quadro brain box and an original manual!

    Default Seawater Grounding SSB

    Here is an interesting link I found while searching for information on SSB grounding. Thought I would pass it along. Just thoughts ...

    That's a great article; when Gordon West writes, I pay attention. His testing totally debunks the huge capacitive ground plane thought to be required by conventional wisdom. My boat (Hecla) has the classic bronze grounding plates installed by some previous owner, seemingly intact but a bit green around the connections. I was disappointed by my radio range on the 2008 SHTP, and had to give up the comm boat job when I put some distance on the fleet. I will purge from my list any thoughts of more ground plane, and concentrate on good clean connections and all around quality installation. I think the devil is in the details for good SSB pereformance. --Jeff
