  1. Use one antenna per VHF or AIS device, or,
  2. Use with an AIS/VHF Antenna Splitter to share one antenna between all VHF and AIS devices. As with all VHF antennas, if you wish to connect one antenna to both a VHF radio and an AIS receiver/transponder, you will need a VHF/AIS Splitter to allow your VHF radio and AIS devices to share one single antenna. VHF/AIS Splitter options include:AIS-VHF Active VHF/AIS Antenna Splitter
    • A015-RX VHF/AIS Antenna Splitter for AIS receivers
    • A015-TX VHF/AIS Antenna Splitter for AIS transponders/ transmitters
