from Everett, WA United States
NOTE1: this is only a reciever, and does not transmit your vessel information.
NOTE2: This unit does not repeat much from the input port to the output port. This may be an issue if you are expecting to splice into an existing connection to your system. If the only information you have on the existing connection is a GPS this will likely work. If there is more data i.e. heading, speed... you will likely loose some of this data. To avoid this, use a seperate input to your system. If it is a PC based system, there are USB to serial adapters available to add a new port for the AIS.
If you are OK with the two notes above, this is a really nice unit. The internal antenna splitter makes it easy to install. If close to the VHF all you need is a PL259 pigtail to connect using your existing VHF antenna.
