One thing, the disconnect the ground wire between the radio and the tuner. They should be grounded separately to the DC negative not the ships ground or bonding. Turn your inverter and fridge off and unplug any shorepower if at the dock while using the radio. This will give you the best signal. Again take a look at the KISS SSB kit as it isolates the radio ground plane from the ship's grounding system. Good luck.
