Insulated Standing Rigging provides the ideal antenna for radio transmission and reception.
Sta-Lok Insulators have proven themselves over the years to be an effective and totally reliable method of converting yacht backstays into radio antenna.
The main body of the insulator consist of an ingenious steel assembly which is embedded in a black weather-proof nylon moulding, designed to exceed the breaking load of the backstay.
