    No one blasting these slug BFT?

    The store in Solana beach is 1/2 Pelagic, 1/2 James & Joseph dive shop. Great place, very good place to get set up. Plunk down some plastic and get it done!

    Radio Signal bad?

    So, a quick follow up-problem solved! The power from the battery measured 12.88v at the battery, and 12.7V at the feed to the radio. There was not enough power drop to cause this to shut off. However, I rewired the power from the power block, which I did not want to do, but the radio now works...

    Spearfish/Diving map

    Most shops have old school maps with the MILPA's marked. West Marine, Dana landing. Does your boat have electronics that show maps? You can plug in the coordinates in a GPS and make sure you avoid the areas. Big $$$ if you miss. Try...

    I believe open circuit means no continuity/pathway contact, and no resistance means pathway contact with no (or very little) resistance. Two different things-

    Couple questions...

    So the 4' Shakespear Galaxy (3Db) should not read open circuit, but should read no resistance?

    Radio Signal bad?

    Thanks for all the info! I checked the voltage drop while keying at 25W, and it dropped from 12.88 to 12.5V. I think I will replace the power wires with larger Diameter today, just to be sure. Should I hook it up directly to both batteries? I go direct, rather than use the power block right next...

    I believe this allows direct (DSC) communication from the radio too. I got the MMSI number from the Coast Guard and tested this aspect too, without using the panic (distress) button. There should also be a "test" method. I believe you only get 2 tries at putting the MMSI number in the radio. Not...

    Couple questions...

    More good info, I posted on the other radio not working thread! I will chase it down, What specific numbers are "a low resistance"? Thanks again!
