Re: KISS-SSB grounding package review?

Installed a KISS SSB system in the BVI last year and it has worked well with my M802 for all services including with the Pactor. Now in Grenada until the spring and am using it for several purposes Marine and Ham. I know of more than a few dozen other actively using cruisers through out the Caribbean that have and are regularly using the system and no one has reported ever having a problem. I'm sure you could mess around and fab some similar unit if your time is worthless..... it may even work but chances are it will not work better and longer in adverse conditions in real cruising service around the world as the KISS SSB has shown it can.
I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.... Jack London
