Product details

Grounding is as important as the antenna itself because it is the opposite pole of the antenna. Good transmission and reception results cannot be achieved without grounding. Steel/aluminium yachts have optimal grounding properties due to their metallic hull. Provides capacitive coupling to the seawater (capacitive grounding) regardless of any painting or antifouling present.

Grounding a GRP yacht is a major challenge. It can only be achieved by keeping the distance from the antenna tuner to the grounding surface as short as possible and having a large grounding surface. Grounding is only achieved for a short time with grounding plates, as they quickly become clogged with mussels and algae. Their effectiveness steadily decreases over time. Apply SSB-Ground-Paint on the inside of the ship below the waterline as close as possible to the antenna tuner, where it is capacitively coupled to the sea water. The area to be painted should be approx. three square metres. This means that, firstly, the ground can be connected directly behind the tuner, secondly, a large area is coupled to the seawater and thirdly, the area is protected from environmental influences and therefore maintenance-free.

SSB Ground Paint is solvent-free and can be easily applied in the abaft area under the bunks in the bilge. For protection, the surface can be painted over with conventional bilge paint. SSB-Ground-Paint is connected to the antenna tuner via a broad embedded copper strap. Coverage: 0.5 l is sufficient for approx. 3 sqm.

SSB-Ground-Paint is not protection against lightning!

I used in the 8-passenger cabin. The connection tuner to the painted floor was made with copper tape. Excellent grounding. Since oxidation of the copper (verdigris) occurred after a few weeks, bilgelack was again painted over it. Looks like new.
