VHF Radio

I mounted an Apelco VHF radio under the distribution box in the cabin on the port side. With some effort I was able to route all the wires including the antenna behind the cabin liner. In the upper right of the large photo you can see where I mounted the thru deck co-ax connector. This gets connected to the co-ax that runs inside the mast. Finally in the lower picture you can see the coil type antenna at the top of the mast with a tell-tale tied to it. Also in the picture you can see the GPS antenna.
