AIS receiver works on the Raymarine E80

I installed a Smart Radio SR161 AIS receiver from MillTech Marine, along with an MiniPlex-AIS multiplexer from ShipModul Marine Electronics to feed my Raymarine E80 Chartplotter this weekend.

The AIS receiver has it's own antenna, a 3db whip, mounted on the flying bridge, and I have been plotting AIS signals from Delaware to Virginia from my location near Baltimore.

I did run into one snag, the GPS data to my Class D DSC VHF radio was lost when I changed the E80 NMEA port from 4800 bps to 38.4Kbps. I was able to correct that by coupling the E80 NMEA output at 38.4Kbps to the RS232 input of the MiniPlex-AIS. Then the 4800 bps NMEA output #2 feeds gps data to the VHF radio.

It's nice to have a plan come together.
