Yep, understand that. It just not practical on small(er) boats..

I figure, for the sailing I do (mostly on what is effectively a large lake, open to the sea at one end) and a mast-head antenna, the receive range reduction should (cross fingers!) not be so great as to cause any major issues.

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
