HF DSC Watch Antenna

DSC HF Watch Antenna

The Icom M801E and M802 require 2 antennas. The main antenna is connected via the AT-141 antenna tuner unit and either the back-stay of a yacht or a whip antenna over 4.9 metres long can be used. Digital Selective Calling (DSC) signals are received via a second antenna. A whip antenna longer than 2 metres should be used as a DSC watch antenna.

NOTE: DSC watch antennas are passive antennas which require NO power.
Active antennas are shorter in length and do require power and do not comply with SOLAS regulations.
A VHF antenna is not suitable as a HF DSC watch antenna.

KISS-SSB grounding system

The KISS-SSB grounding system works on all frequencies from 2 MHz through to 30 MHz with an SWR of 1.2 or less and works just as good or better as the copper foil/bonding system.

It comprises of a 119 cms lead that attaches to the "grounding lug" on your tuner (ATU) and then you just stretch out the remaining 3 metres long tube inside the hull of the boat. It is that easy to install:
  1. No drag when sailing.
  2. No need to drill holes in the hull under the waterline for a "grounding plate"
  3. No need to run the copper foil everywhere.
  4. No need to bond all the thru-hulls.
  5. Maintenance free.
  6. Can even be used when your boat is on the hard and not in the water.
  7. Helps save your expensive radio gear in the case of a lightning strike, as there is not a direct connection to water.
