I curently have 2 at 20 NMS, neither in direct line of sight.
Dunno why it works but it does
All this AIS
talk got me off my bum and got me to finally properly install my AIS display which had been cable tied to the helm
and the transponder which was duct taped to the chart table. My AIS antenna
is mounted on the radar arch
and I was able to track the ferry
from the next harbor over until it reached it's destination
14 miles away. Which seems pretty good for my needs.
