Re: GAM SSB Backstay Antenna

On my last boat, I used a GAM on my split backstay and worked fine. I fed the antenna up from one of the legs until it got to the connector plate. I then had to hoist someone up to the plate and they simply continued to feed the antenna around the plate and up the center portion of the stay. We zip tied it in place, making sure te had a zip tie on either side of the plate, and never had an issue with it.
