We are about to commit to installation of an HF/MF radio aboard our RIVAL 36 and being adverse to through hull fittings are minded to fit a KISS Counterpoise ground system to the ATU.

We have heard tales of woe regarding RFI which is perhaps not surpising given a ground planes radiating properties but we wondered if anyone within the OCC forum community had experience of this system on a small boat before we commit?

All feedback (no pun intended) appreciated.

Peter,
There is already quite an extensive and informative thread about this on the Forum so please take a look at https://www.oceancruisingclub.org/index.php/forum/electrics-electronics-and-radio/842-ssb-ground-plates?limitstart=0

Peter,

I have installed and used a Kiss ground plane this year on our trip to the Azores. We had another problem with the installation and had a knowledgeable radio amateur look at the installation on Faial. He solved the problem and also commented that the antenna and ground plane setup worked very well.
I installed the ground plane for exactly the same reasons you state and we are happy with it!
