Hey guys,
Very interesting discussion for me as I recently secured my ham radio license as a result of acquiring a nice old shortwave radio with the boat. So, Satori has the usual, I suppose, antenna of SS backstay with two insulators and a coax cable running from the radio station to the I suppose 30-40 foot insulated backstay/antenna. So, if I redo the standing rigging, should the backstay antenna insulators be replaced, as they are at least 10 years old.
As for the rope antenna, some say slinkies may work better for a lot less cost $$$.
Randy
