There are modification instructions for a large number of rigs at this site:

www.mods.dk

I don''t know if they have mods for your radio but it''s worth a look.

For those interested in installing a SSB properly, choosing the right ''modem'' (TNC), using the SSB for email and wx downloads, sending attachments and more, the SSCA Gam held in Melbourne, FL each November offers a full day of hands-on, real world seminars. It''s amazingly informative, especially given the not-trivial learning curve for this topic.

The following announcement was just sent out to all current Winlink (that''s the ''ham email'' system) users.
"In addition to the Winlink Development Team, Jim Corenman,
author of Airmail, Eric Steinberg, the USA representative
for SCS, and two NOAA senior maritime forecasters, there
will also be over 7 additional PMBOs attending the SSCA
November GAM. Also, thanks to some very generous and
supportive venders, we have several ICOMs, an SCS modem,
Pactor 3 upgrades AND MORE to give away during our Winlink
with Airmail sessions, Friday, November 14th, and all day
Saturday, November 15th. We all hope to see you there starting
on Thursday, November 13th, at the WRCC Picnic."

This of course omits any reference to the 3 days of SSCA seminars, large vendor display and social events. It''s also a great time for those heading S and E to meet other crews with similar plans. A large anchorage and a sizeable dinghy dock are right at the foot of the Melbourne Civic Center where the Gam is held. More info can be found at the SSCA website (www.ssca.org).

THis is going to seem naive, but why can I not use the cb/ssb mobile I have in my truck for use at sea. I can rig my backstay up with an antenna. It seems like a good way to save a thou.

T:

There''s no reason why a radio that works in your truck won''t work on your boat...altho'' whether there''s others to talk to when sailing the boat will depend on the radio. (Not sure what a "cb/ssb mobile"; perhaps you mean two separate radios).
