Re: KISS-SSB grounding package review?
A quick question re the kiss counterpoise. If I purchase one and install - but do not have an insulated backstay (and cannot afford one) - can I literally just hoist an insulated wire up the mast? Or what might be a reasonably priced antenna for a hundred bucks or less? It's a ham system - Icom 718 and AH-4 tuner I bought used. Trying to figure this out on my own has been a whirlwind of info. Any thoughts appreciated thanks.
I'm disappointed that you passed your ham exam and don't know the answer.
Yes - you can hoist wire - insulated or not up the mast. Try to keep it as far as you practically can from the mast and stays and shrouds.
