Great answer Windward54.

Now, on to the next question:

2) If one were to install a Marine SSB (one of those nice ICOM units) - what is absolutely required and what equipment is optional or nice to have? Is an insulated backstay antenna required? I have heartburn cutting the rigging...and I have a true split backstay (not a Y).

What other options are there for antenna installs...is this thing viable:
