You don’t need to bee in the category “$500/month” for wanting to get most safety
for the money
. And I say with the GPS
you get that, and that’s way everyone has one.
With the simple AIS transceiver you get a god CPA-alarm (Closest Point of Approach alarm
alarm). When the ordinary sailor realise that, they going to install an AIS.
But an AIS transceiver is like a dud. As long you are alone with the transceiver, you see everyone and now one sees you. When you’re not alone, you’re in a risk. You only see them with a transponder. If everyone hade a transponder, the situation would not occur.
If you going to have a CPA-alarm on a radar that works, you’re going to have a real god radar. But then you also see those yacht that only have a transceiver. They are really expensive and you are probably in the category “The %”.
