Stus-List Fw: (no subject) now AIS

Mike,

Did you want a transponder or just a receiver?  If just a receiver, consider a VHF radio with AIS. I have a one interfaced with my chart plotter. 

Also having an AIS can give a false sense of security. Not all vessels have AIS.

Despite this, I bought an MilTech AIS receiver 6 or 7 years ago because I thought it was really cool and relatively inexpensive. It once picked up the signal from an old tugboat in for repairs at Green Cove Springs. w00t.
