  1. Anybody use a SiTex 525 VHF/ADF Adapter?
    I'm considering buying one but don't understand how it can work using only
    my existing VHF antenna and can't afford to buy something that is marginal
    at best.
    I've been on boats with a Polaris (spelling?) but they're hard to find.
     
  2. Thanks to both of you for the information. Now, how do I explain yet another
    $500 worth of boating toys to my wife (the family financier)?...
     
  3. One of the reasons I'm interested in having ADF capability is to find
    transmitters on Marine VHF. I participate in Coast Guard Auxiliary Safety
    Patrols of San Diego Bay. Besides the occasional child playing with the
    radio, it's not unusual for a microphone to be stuck in the transmit
    position. Having ADF would help in locating the source.
    The buzzing would be annoying, but I don't expect to have the ADF in
    operation at all times. I guess another option would be to have a second
    radio just for the ADF and leave the volume turned low on that radio, to use
    it only for ADF and not for communications.
