Re: ssb v.satphone ?who's the winner

The Gam is still available and it works well. It's not a dipole, but rather just a long wire antenna that works just like a traditional backstay antenna. But it does work well. I do caution people though that there is no way to service anything on the antenna. Ours wicked up moisture on the feed line somehow. I had to send the whole antenna back to the manufacturer for repair. Not bad if you're on the coast smewhere, but tough to do away from the dock.
