AIS splitter

Post by paulfoddy »

I have a Standard Horizon GX220E VHF with built in GPS and AIS receivers. I would like wifi so I can pick up AIS on my tablet.
My plan is to use an AO26 with active splitter. Will splitting the signal prevent the VHF from receiving AIS data as at the moment this is hardwired to my fixed onboard plotter and feeds it GPS and AIS information.
Thank you

Hi Yes, This is a typical way customers use A015-RX. If you are using AIS transponder(two ways AIS) then you will need A015-TX. Good luck!

Does that mean the VHF will still receive and process the AIS data?
Thank you

AIS won't receive any signal when VHF transmit(e.g. Press To Talk) but VHF receiver and AIS receiver will start work immediately once the user release the press button.
