AIS alarm won't shut off

I have a Digital Yacht AIS transponder running to a Raymarine E120 (1st gen). Also runs Raymarine radar and autopilot. The AIS danger alarm sounds constantly close to harbors and channels, and I have gone into AIS setup, but cannot turn the alarm off completely.

Any ideas?

I misstated.. It is a C-120. Big mistake.

Re: AIS alarm won't shut off

On my Standard Horizon GX-2150 and CP590 I get tcpa alarms if a boat get within the distance I have set in the menu. There isn't a way to turn it off with out turning off the ability to receive targets. I set mine at 1.5 miles here on the upper Mississippi River that works well enough to not be bothered by alarms from boats that do not need my attention.

On the C120 press the Menu button, select Alarm Setup then select AIS Alarms to turn off the Dangerous Target alarm.

Re: AIS alarm won't shut off

I have had this problem with NASCAR ais. However only in certain areas. I have sailed the coast of Morocco twice and on both occasions it would sound incessantly despite rebooting and no other vessel in sight or on the screen. It happened for a few hours mid atlantic also. My only suspicion might be inland radar or some such thing on the Moroccan coast, possibly submarine mid atlantic though doubt whether they would be announcing their presence! Which reminds me I really must ring up NASA and ask for their views. But I will follow this thread with interest too.

Re: AIS alarm won't shut off

Are you connected via NMEA 2000? Raymarine chart plotters have known issues connecting to non-Raymarine AIS. A suggested work around is to connect via NMEA 0183. You'll then have to go into settings on the chart plotter and change port 2 to AIS 38400.
