Re: remote VHF radio mic installation at helm?
I installed my RAM inside the coaming, just aft of the wheel to starboard. I previously had an old Autohelm wheelpilot control head mounted there, so I had some existing holes. This site keeps the mike out of the way. The mike clip is obvious, and the connector is to the left of the shore power fitting.
I have to deal with two drawbridges to and from my dock, so this is a very handy arrangement. Otherwise, the mother radio is down below and not usually convenient, unless we are at anchor.
