IC-M802k

Works on Ham & Marine Frequencies

You supply the boat, antenna, and RF ground, and DSR's ICM802k 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 16-feet (5Meters) away. Both the control head and speaker have a generous bezel, making a good looking "flush mount" a snap, even for skippers who are not expert wood workers (requires MB-75 flush Mount Kit).

The ICM802k contains everything you need to for a complete SSB system:

  1. M802 marine SSB transceiver.
  2. AT-140 Antenna Tuner
  3. OPC-1147N tuner control cable (10M - 30+Feet).
  4. GPS data cable w/BNC connector (12').
  5. RG-8 double-shielded coaxial cable (Up to 33'/10M)*.
  6. GTO-15 antenna lead-in wire (Up to 20')*.

  8. Copper RF grounding foil (Up to 9', heavy-duty .010 thick 4-inch Wide - Won't dissolve in your bilge).
  9. T-4-500 "common mode" coaxial RF Choke.
  10. Double-male coaxial connector.
  11. RF chokes - FairRites (two XL type-31 snap-on ).
  12. The Sailors Quick-Start Guide to SSB Radio Installation & Operation (a DSR exclusive).

M802 DSC Antenna Kit

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

DSC802-1

Rail Mount Fits 1" stainless rail

Is your M802 hooked-up to receive DSC (digital Selective Calling) emergency & routine calls?

If you have an unused coaxial antenna connector on the back of your M802 your radio, this is the antenna that connects there.  What's connected to your DSC antenna connector?

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. Rail mount for 1" stainless tubing.
  3. 33-feet (10M) RG8x coaxial cable with PL259 connectors on each end.

GPS Data Cable

GPS-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. On the GPS end connect the center conductor to the GPS data out & the shield to GPS signal ground. On the M802 end simply connect the molded BNC connector to the GPS Input and you're "good-to-go".

The GPS-802 consists of twelve feet of RG-174 mini-coax with a BNC connector factory installed on one end, and wire to connect to GPS + & GPS - on the other end.
