M803/M802 RFI Kit

Now with Superior RF Choking

Kit configuration designed to suppress common-mode  RF interference (RFI). Connects between an Icom M803, M802 & an  AT-140, 141  tuner. No soldering required.

Can also be fitted onto coax cable connecting XCVR to AT-120/AT-130 tuners

RFIK-8 The M803 RFI kit is the first step toward reducing  / eliminating ship-board Radio Frequency Interference caused by "Common-mode" signals from your SSB radio transmissions. The M803 / M802 RFI Kit consists of two genuine FairRite XLType-31 snap-on RF chokes (for installation on the OPC-1465 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.

M803/802 DSC Antenna Kit


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

DSCK-803/802 calls?
What's connected to your DSC antenna connector? If you have an unused coaxial antenna connector on the back of your M803/802 the answer is nothing.  

The Icom M803/802 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 M803/802). If you don't have an FCC-issued MMSI number already, DockSide Radio can file for one on your behalf - see FCC Licenses on this web site, or call 206-792-9540.

Kit contents:
  1. METZ WEFAX/DSC antenna with mounting angle bracket. (Mounts similar to VHF whip).
  2. 30-feet  RG8x coaxial cable with soldered PL259 connectors on each end.

1 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.
