     The transceiver and antenna tuner MUST have an            Good ground points
     adequate ground connection. Otherwise, the overall         Ship's ground terminal
     efficiency of the transceiver and antenna tuner instal-    External ground plate
     lation will be reduced. Electrolysis, electrical shocks    External copper screen
     and interference from other equipment could also
     occur.                                                    Acceptable ground points

     For best results, use the heaviest gauge wire or strap     Stainless steel stanchion
     available and make the connection as short as possi-       Through mast
     ble. Ground the transceiver and antenna tuner to one       Through hull
     ground point, otherwise voltage differences between        Metal water tank
     2 ground points may cause electrolysis.

       will not function.

     I Power source
     The transceiver requires regulated DC power of 13.6       DC power cable connection
     V and at least 30 A. There are 3 ways to supply
                                                                                           NOTE: Use terminals

      Direct connection to a 12 V battery in your ship
       through the supplied DC power cable.                                                                 Crimp

       AC outlet.
      Use the PS-66 DC-DC CONVERTER to connect to a
       1932 V DC power source.

     R CAUTION: The supplied DC power cable MUST                         12 V                              Solder

       AVOID exceeding the 3 m (10 ft) length of the DC                            Supplied
       power cable. If it is necessary to make a run of                            DC power cable
       over 3 m, use #6 or similar weight cable instead of
       the supplied DC power cable for a maximum run
       of 6 m (20 ft).

I Installing internal options
D Opening the case
Follow the case and cover opening procedures

 Remove the 9 screws from the rear panel, then re-
  move the rear frame and rear sealing.
 Remove the transceiver case.
 When reassembling the transceiver, check the fol-
  lowing points:
   Internal fan and slits in the case are on the same
     side.
   Front sealing is mated correctly.
   Rear sealing is attached in the proper orienta-
                                                                          Rear frame
     tion.
   Screws are tightened securely.



D Installing an optional filter and alarm unit
After opening the case as shown above, install the
desired option to the position as at right. These op-
tions are available (or already built-in) for the following
versions:
         Version               Marine         General

   2-TONE ALARM UNIT


After installing the 2-tone alarm unit into a General
version, remove the plastic cover on the [ALARM]
switch to use the switch.                                                                      Space for the FL-100.

I Fuse replacement
The transceiver has 3 fuses to protect internal cir-
cuitry, 2 fuses for the fuse holder on the rear panel

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
