In PBO and other publications you see 'experts' saying not to solder but to use crimps as the flux in the solder can eat the metal away.
On ships you need to fit multistrand wire so when vibration finally causes a strand to break you dont get an open circuit.
When you solder you create a single strand, though crimping must do the same.

Hi James,
Dont like crimps find them unreliable particularly on plain copper wire as the wire wicks up the salt laden moisture...if you cut an old cable back a metre the copper will be black. dont understand why the flux in good quality solder would "eat the metal" as every piece of electronis equipment on a boat has solder connections....its not as if you use Bakers Fluid for electrical work.

Is the 601 new? I (may) be wrong but i seam to remember you can't connect the 'command mic' to the front socket of this radio... only the supplied standard speaker mic.

Also have you rigged up the hailer output to a loudspeaker - the auto foghorn is very good.

Superb work BTW. Been there, done that and i know how long it all takes. It's also very comforting, however, to be at sea knowing you wired it yourself!!!
