2022-10-17 | New VHF Radio Installed

October 17th, 2022
Sunny and calm.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife

I got the new VHF installed. Connected the new antenna, installed the coax and power cables along with relocating the AIS and antenna splitter. Looks much cleaner now.

I’m really not liking the person who chose the location for the power connections. Crammed in a corner with my feet up on the side of the hull just to crimp and screw down some wires with the space between the fridge and the floor inviting each screw to fall into the abyss. Spoiler: I chose that location and it sure looks great, but man is it tough to work in there.

A new RAM mount will go in the cockpit and connect to the back of the radio, but that will wait until I get to the port sail locker

Job done. One thing less to do.
