Re: ICOM SSB and ADSP filter kit?

We do have a KISS SSB ground and bought the SSB 802 kit online with a Pactor modem. We have it all set up but for SailMail and the computer. We are currently setting up the SSB to GPS (chart plotter) function.

The kit said to not connect any other ground on the antenna tuner and so we did not. Also we I think we did not ground the radio either.

We did not disconnect anything. We have shore power plugged in etc. This will be our next test, un-plugging shore power and turning everything off.
Perhaps tonight we can try the “Pacific Seafarers' Net.” And hear if there is a noise reduction using the RF gain.
My wife Debbie has gotten the FRN number and is now applying for the ships license. We just had first grandchild born and so that put thing on hold.
Does the “noise’ affect the email?
Thanks,
Chip
