I am going to change boat and I have uninstalled my old TS 430S SSB
that still works fine and I have to reinstall on the new boat.

Discussion on SSB are very frequent, here around, but I have not been
able to find out someone talking of the hard job to clean RFI out of
the on board circuits, when SSB goes on air.
I remember that when I installed the TX I had to put ferrite chokes
and capacitors, for a week, before to obtain a reasonable RFI clean
status.

Now I fear to start again with this job, on the new boat, and I wonder
if someone of you has a reference documentation to suggest, in order
to do it at the best.

Thanks a lot for the attention.

Best regards,

I'm puzzled by the rfi question on the TS 430S. I use one daily, and
haven't had any rfi problems. The TS 430S isn't known for those kinds of
problems. Is your rfi from an external source? If so, that's a whole
different problem.

OK. Now I think I see. You're talking about rfi caused to other
electrical/electronic things in the vicinity of the TS 430S.

Yes .
I think you were not talking of a TX installe on a sailing boat,
powered from the 12 v DC of board, with a lot of other equipments and
circuit nearby and with the coax crossing, at leas four meters inside
the boat prior to reach the insulated backstay, that work as antenna.
RFI is all over ... it's a mess, trust me.
In addition the dynaplate not always works well as grounding plate...
etc.
There is a good searching and cleaning work to be done at first
installation.
I hope now my wuestion is clearer.

Thanks for your attention
