I would like to transmit other boats & myself to www.marinetraffic.com
to show my yacht Ophelia on their web site while sailing up the east coast
. I currently transmit the code via my laptop
using AISDispatcher 1.4. I am in Pittwater currently & if I don't transmit, I & others cannot be seen on Marinetraffic. Seems to be a black spot. as are other areas south of Sydney
I have GME AST120 transceiver installed which has a USB cable with male end. I am after a serial
to ethernet convertor but also a USB to serial
switch. I don't know too much about the system but it appears the Ethernet thingmebob connects to my Telstra 4G modem
& sends out the info to a specific IP address. Currently I have the\laptop sending to Marinetraffic & AISHUB. There is info on Marinetraffic & VK2GEL but all seem to use serial from AIS
transceiver. The laptop
creates a virtual serial port. I want to transmit when the laptop is off.
Does anyone use this system & can advise what they use with a USB connection.
