I'm using an SR161 and a Shakespear "sailboat" antenna....

I have the antenna mounted a bit over head height and about 6in from my wind generator pole. It seems to work fine and picks up targets out to about 10miles. Mine is a receiver only so the 2 way ones may be different but I can't see how. As for the splitters, you can buy a very nice antenna and about a mile of co-ax for the cost of one. My AIS is running through my laptop with SeaClear and I'm very happy with it so far........m

I must go down to the sea again.........
