Having re- read the my previous post its not very clear - I'll try again.

With a single width console and right hand throttle which side of the wheel should I fit my radio?

Cheers

Phil

Fear not - Being a tight northerner I use the TV Coax just to thread it and put the Vtronix stuff through afterwards!!

Thanks for the warning anyway!

Phillip, I think my original comments still stand. No right or wrong way really. Try what suits you best. I suppose in RYA world, you could argue you throttle hand should always be on the throttle so fit is so your wheel hand is for using the VHF!

I have the same set up and have the fist mike on the left with radio in the console between my legs What I find is that this is fine when Iím on my own but when there are more people on board it would be handy if someone else could use the radio and leave me to steer so I have been think about mounting the radio either behind or beside me Having said that Iím still thinking because every other place I look at offers new problems Des

Ashby is spot on... DO NOT USE THE TV CO-AX as the antenna feeder..
Use it to pull the prober co-ax through.
ie tape the ends together and use it as, what we in the trade call, a mouse.

TV co-ax is not designed to TX up.
As well as damage to the set you risk burning out the TV co-ax and having to re run it any way.

Regards
