HI, I also have the 2150, and am following this with interest. AFAIK the 2.5 stable release does not, but future releases certainly will, thanks to Piotr and the team.
I will need an extra port to bring the signal in. I know that the 2150 can do AIS and DSC on the same wire, at 38400, but if you select 38400 on the menu, the 2150 also expects to RECEIVE at that speed. My GPS
is still at 4800. So, I have had to select 4800 in the 2150 and therefore my AIS and DSC are seperate on the outputs.
If you know any different please advise. I have taken this up with SH and suggested that they incorporate a multiplexer like my old AIS system had, and include a USB port for the mux'd combined signal. The new radio will have GPS
input, and will put out GPS,AIS,DSC, (Tea, Coffee, whatever you like) Via a USB port, emulating a configurable serial
Great Radio!!!! just bought 3 of them.
