Re: VHF Antenna Masthead Installation Questions
Although this suggestion presents some theoretical problems, mounting an antenna on the push pit has many practical advantages over a masthead mount -- much shorter run, less signal loss, no connectors, no cable in the bilge, no weight aloft, cheaper, easier to service. Many years ago I yanked my masthead VHF antenna and masthead anchor light; never regretted the choice.
