Includes the Windex and 3db Antenna, however I use the Aqua Signal light mounted on a short piece of PVC pipe due to LED availability at time of purchase. Also, unlike most Mac owners, I use Military Grade D38999 Connectors for my mast connections. 5 circuits, 6 really because the shell is the GND return. Any commercial grade connectors I purchased ALWAYS rotted way. The shell is waterproof and the pins are gold plated. One of the perks working at a Military Contractor.

    I placed it over the hole closed by the plate hiding the winch bolts. The main problem here was to route the wiring to the panel. Just now there is no separat switch besides that at the light itself. Published by: MS Classifieds
