Safe Mounting for Radar

October 2009
Practical Sailor;Oct2009, Vol. 35 Issue 10, p32
The article offers insights on how to stay away from the risk of radio frequency (RF) exposure. It notes the importance of installation not to allow for direct and continuous exposure which can be avoided by mounting an antenna on the pole or backstay well of the deck. It mentions the significance of the mount to have tilt capability to the possession of stern pedestal-mounted radars of little tolerance for heel and pitch which could result in a return in a flat calm.
