Antenna for Yacht

Post by Dar Kuma » Friday 19th Jun 2009, 14:32

I've been looking at putting an aerial onto a yacht, There is however a few problems with this as it's fiberglass.

Before I buy the radio I'm looking at ways to actually mount the aerial, There is a metal handrail that goes round the rear of the yacht, Would this be enough ground plane or would I need something better than that.

I did want to put a yaesu 857/897 with an atas 120 on board, But I might have to scale it down to just having a uniden 2830 and a 9 foot whip.

Any ideas welcome cause this is really doing my head in.

thank you.
