Raymarine RAY 70 Maritime VHF

The Raymarine Ray 70 is our main radio onboard. This is a 25W maritime VHF radio with a built-in AIS Receiver and 72 channel WAAS GPS. We also have an second station kit in the cockpit.

The Ray70 comes with a lot of great features and we are really satisfied with this radio. The antenna is a Glomex antenna mounted in the top of the mast, and in one of the episodes you will see that we did some modification with it, to make a better and more durable connection between the coax and the antenna. In addition to this radio we also have a waterproof portable maritim VHF for backup and safety reasons.

 We are both licenced radio operators for maritime VHF radios. If you want to know more about the Raymarine Ray 70 check out the link below.


Icom Ic 7000 HF VHF UHF

The Icom IC7000 all mode transceiver has been around for quite a bit of time, but it’s still a good radio and very well known among radio amateurs. In addition to just talking to other radioamateuers we use this radio for a lot of different things, like sending and receiving email when we don’t have any internet connection, receiving NAVTEX messages, receiving weather updates, both text messages, weather fax and GRIB files. 

The HF part of the radio is tuned by a Icom AH4 tuner and the antenna is a random longwire that runs from the deck and up to the top of the mast. Its grounded with a Dynaplate close to the tuner. The VHF and UHF part is connected to a Diamond X-30 dual band antenna. 

We are both licenced radio amateurs.

Icom AH-4 Tuner

This tuner is made to work with several of the radio models from Icom and it provides reliable matching of frequencies from 3.5 to 54 MHz when using a wire of at least 23 feet (7 m) in length.
We have monted our tuner as close to the bottom of the longwire antenne as possible. The Icom AH4 tuner its waterproof but we choose to have it inside the boat. Its monted very close to the Dyna grounding plate. The tuner is connected to the ground plate by a heavy gauge wire made spesific for grounding radio equipment.

Diamond X-30 144/430Mhz

A dual band antenna for the 2m and 70cm band and its conected to the IC7000 Taking care of the VHF and UHF part.

We are very pleased with this antenna and its have a maximum power rating on 150W and the wind rating is stated to be153 Mph, as we think is quite sufficient

Fladen flotation suit

This is part of our heaviest sailing gear and its a favorite on long cold passages.  It is certified as Flotation Suit (ISO 12402-6) and as Immersion Suit (ISO-15027-1).

These flotation suits are manufactured to meet the strictest requirements and are certified either as flotation ISO 12402-6 and ISO 15027-1 rescue outfit. One of the requirements to be classed according to ISO 15027-1 is that you do not lose more than 2°C body temperature in 5 ° C water for one hour. Test results for Fladen was only 1.2° C. A flotation suit works as a protection against the first cold shock and then as a wetsuit when the water inside is heated up body temperature. The garments are made of a light and flexible material for comfort and mobility, while they are wind and water resistant.

In addition to this suit we use safety harness so that we can connect us to safety-lines or strongpoints onboard. If you want to know more, check out the link bellow.
