Re: KISS-SSB grounding package review?

Chip, a lot of people don't think the KISS is all that great, or that the KISS just plain can't work. I have to admit, I was a skeptic as well. But I got my hands on one to try for free and I figured what the heck. Might as well give it a try. I was surprised on how well it worked, on all bands. I use Winlink with the KISS for 18 months now with not a hitch, and never had a problem loading to any band. On my last boat, I used a copper foil to a thru-hull. This was recommended by Gordon West when I took his class. It worked fine, but the tuner seems to load a snap faster when I used the KISS instead.

I'm just up the road in L.A., so if you have any questions, you can always give a holler, or you can give a call on your M802 once it is in! I regularly use the Winlink station in San Diego (I believe it is at SDYC), so I know I can reach you!
