SSB Radio  Accessory Kits

M802 RFI Kit


Kit configuration designed to connect to Icom M802 with AT-140 tuner

RFIK-8 The M802 RFI kit is the first step in the process of reducing/eliminating ship-board Radio Frequency Interference caused by "Common-mode" signals from your SSB radio transmissions. The M802 RFI Kit consists of two genuine FairRite XLType-31 snap-on RF chokes (for installation on the OPC-1147N Antenna Tuner control cable), one Line Isolator (installs inline with the coax cable), a PL-258 double male UHF Coax Connector, and instructions.

Note: RFI Kits contain components required in a properly designed SSB radio system. Adding them to an existing installation should help reduce interference to other ship-board electronics caused by your SSB. They are NOT, however, a substitute for proper SSB system design, neither are they a remedy for poorly functioning antenna and RF ground systems.

M700Pro & M710 Series RFI Kit


Works with Furuno, Icom, Kenwood, SGC, & Yaesu Marine & Ham systems

RFIK-7 The RFIK7 kit is configured to easily install on most Marine and Ham SSB systems. The function of the RFIK7 kit is to prevent the flow of common-mode signals, first step in the process of reducing/eliminating ship-board Radio Frequency Interference from your SSB radio transmissions.

The RFIK7  Kit consists of two genuine FairRite XLType-31 snap-on RF chokes (for installation on the Antenna Tuner control cable), one Line Isolator (installs inline with the coax cable), & an 18-inch
RG8x coax jumper with soldered, silver plated, Teflon insulated PL-259 connectors
to connect the line isolator to the antenna tuner, and instructions.

Note: RFI Kits contain components required in a properly designed SSB radio system. Adding them to an existing installation should help reduce interference to other ship-board electronics caused by your SSB. They are NOT, however, a substitute for proper SSB system design, neither are they a remedy for poorly functioning antenna and RF ground systems.

GPS Data Cable Kit
 


Only from DockSide Radio

GPSK-802

The GPS-802 Data Cable solves the problem of getting GPS data into your M802. Simply cut the 12-foot cable to the length you need,  connect the cable's center conductor to the GPS data out, the shield to GPS signal ground, snap-on the FairRite and you're "good-to-go".

The GPSK-802 consists of twelve feet of RG-174 mini-coax with a factory-installed BNC connector that fits your M802 on one end, & bare wire for connecting to the GPS on  other end, one snap-on Type-31 FairRite, & an instruction sheet.

M802 DSC Antenna Kit

Digital Selective Calling is discussed in detail on pages 15-42 of the M802 Instruction Manual.

DSCK-802 Is your M802 hooked-up to receive emergency & routine DSC (digital Selective Calling) calls?
What's connected to your DSC antenna connector? If you have an unused coaxial antenna connector on the back of your M802 the answer is nothing.  

The Icom M802 is actually two separate receivers inside one box; the regular SSB receiver for standard SSB communications, and a dedicated Digital Selective Calling (DSC) receiver. It is this second DSC receiver that continuously listens for DSC calls addressed to your MMSI number (the number you've programmed into your M802). If you don't have an FCC-issued MMSI number DockSide Radio can file for one on your behalf - see FCC Licenses on this web site, or call 941.661.4498.

Kit contents:
  1. METZ WEFAX/DSC antenna with mounting bracket.
  2. "-1" Universal Rail mount
  3. 40-feet (12M) RG8x coaxial cable with PL259 connectors on each end.

Processed Voice

M802 Compression ON/OFF Screen

Q: Why is it important to turn speech compression on/off?

A: For the same reason there are light switches. There are times when you may want compression off:
   -
To reduce battery drain. Speech compression increases tranamit power output. Higher output power draws more current from the batteries. More current means the SSB is working harder. More work generates more heat.

   - Some high pitched voices (like kids voices) may not process well.

   - Noisy environment. Engine noise may be louder with speech compression on.

IC-M802k

 

 

 

 Programmed with Weather FAX, Ham, & Marine SSB Net Frequencies,

You supply the boat, antenna, and RF ground, and DSR's IC-M802k SSB kit does the rest. The Icom M802 comes ready to use on both Marine SSB and Ham/amateur Radio frequencies. The M802's flexible three-piece design makes it easy to install: mount the separate control head & speaker at your nav/helm station where space is scarce, and squirrel-away the main radio unit in a more seldom used locker or cubby hole up to 15-feet (5Meters) away. Both the control head and speaker have a generously wide bezel, making the professional look of an in-panel flush-mount installation a snap, even for skippers who aren't expert wood workers (requires MB-75 flush Mount Kit - must be ordered separately).

The IC-M802k contains:

  1. Icom M802 SSB Radio with:
    1. Transmit on Ham & Marine Frequencies - Enabled

2 DockSide Radio does not control the design compromises frequently incorporated into non-standard components & products. Because the outcomes of using non-standard compromises are in many cases indeterminate, DockSide Radio is unable to provide no-charge technical support to self-customized SSB systems that violate generally accepted industry design practices and basic physics.  

3The M802 is FCC approved for sale in the US. The M802 is not CE approved, therefore, it should not be fitted to European, Australian, New Zealand, etc., flagged vessels. The lack of CE approval could cause incoming customs authorities to disallow entry of M802's exported from the US into these countries.

Note:

If you're planning on flush-mounting the control head, you need to add one $31.95 Flush-mount kit to your order.

If you're planning on flush-mounting both the control head and speaker, you'll need to add two flush-mount kits to your order.
