Siitech of Vancouver has made a generous offer to the users of OpenCPN
For any boat capable of sending email
position reports over the internet
,they will free of charge display the vessel details in their world-wide AIS
This can also be very useful for regattas where cheap
and short range position reporting devices can relay all the position reports to a central,internet connected station/boat for transmission
to the Siitech network. Also free of charge.
Any ARPA enabled boat can also be displayed in this manner.
Let me know if this is of interest to anyone.
