QK-A031 Now Supports Station Mode

We always like to improve our products as we receive feedback from users so the new stock, available now, supports Station Mode:

as well as Ad hoc Mode:

This means you will be able to access the multiplexer remotely from anywhere on (or even off!) the vessel using a single AP or router, as well as connecting directly to it with your phone or tablet.

Another cracking review for the QK-A021, this time from Spain!

A lovely review from Alfonso in Spain, see it in the original Spanish on our Tindie outlet 

   

Hi. I do not speak English, so I’ll say it in Spanish, which is my language.
I am delighted with AIS Receiver Google usb, it works perfectly, sometimes even without having connected the antenna. Shipping was fast. The price very, very good.

Thanks Alfonso! We’re glad you like it

Quark-Elec AIS receiver review and Boat Beacon

Hot off the presses at Pocket Mariner a fantastic new review of our receiver working with their software.  They compared it with some other top sellers and their conclusion was:

 

If you are on a small boat and your AIS aerial is at most 10m above sea level the VHF ship spotting horizon range will be about 12NM (see note at end on calculating VHF horizon range). The Quark easily met that target for spotting ships.

Customer Video of QK-A026 set-up

Jim Ferguson aboard the Mischief Managed recently purchased a QK-A026.

He made a YouTube Video Guide to setting it up and had some really nice things to say about it:

After I bought this I had really high hopes for it.  As it turns out my hopes have been mostly realized.  I can connect iNavX on my iPad and MacENC on my Macintosh computer wirelessly and receive GPS and AIS data while the A026 is happily providing AIS target data to my Garmin GPSMap 3206 chart plotter.  Anyway, I am ecstatic with the way this has worked out.
