YRR Antenna for R.I.B.s. Thank you for purchasing a V-Tronix antenna. V-Tronix works hard to build reliability and durability into all of its products for maximum customer satisfaction. Before installing, please read all instructions, study the diagram and check parts supplied against those listed. The YRR is a VHF marine antenna tuned to cover 156—162MHz. It offers superior performance and reliability and features the unique solderless connector to make installation and servicing easier. It is strong, flexible and very light. Weight is less than 150g. Tools Required: Knife, Soldering Iron, Drill 3.2mm bit, screwdriver Installation Instructions Choose a mounting location that is as high as possible, free from obstruction and away from other antennas Mast or A frame mounting: The bracket / antenna should be fitted to the highest possible point of the mast or A frame and certainly so that not more than the bottom 15mm of the antenna is below the top of the structure. Use the bracket supplied as a marking jig to drill 3 holes 3.2mm (1/8‟) dia and fasten with stainless steel self tapping screws provided. Supplied Parts: YRR Antenna Right Angle Bracket 3 x No.8, 3/4” Slot Pan Head Screws 8m cable hank with connectors PL259 Plug SOLDERLESS CABLE TERMINATION 1. Put large „O‟ ring on thumb screw. 2. Slide cable entry bush, thumb screw, cable spacer (slot end first), and small „O‟ ring over cable. 3. Strip cable outer sleeve and fold braid back. 4. Screw hollow nosed bullet (clockwise) on to cable as far as possible. Some inner insulation should show at the nose of the bullet. 5. If any braid is showing at the cable end of the bullet, trim this. 6. Cut the inner insulation and conductor cleanly at the end of the bullet. Ensure that there are no loose strands of inner conductor protruding. Bulkhead mounting: Again, the self tapping screws can be used into more suitable structures or M5 or 2BA bolts. It is important that not more than the bottom 15mm of the antenna is below the coach roof. The antenna should be mounted upright as a rake could cause poor performance. Cable Runs: The cable should be formed into a loop below the antenna before passing down the mast / bulkhead. Cable bend must not be less than 25mm radius. Our deck connector Kit ACC130 (to be purchased) enables the cable to pass thorough the deck in a waterproof manner and allows the mast to be removed leaving the internal cable undisturbed. Where this is not necessary our Deck Gland Kit ACC108 (to be purchased) can be used. CUT OFF EXCESS CABLE Insert the hollow nosed bullet into the base of the aerial. Screw the thumbscrew carefully into the base of the aerial, until tight, to make the cable connection and water resistant seal. If the cable has to be disconnected see the instructions opposite for refitting. Technical Tip: There should be an OPEN CIRCUIT between the pin and body of the plug. Should you have any difficulty please consult your dealer.
