AIS Receiver

The SR161 is an entry-level, low-cost, single-channel scanning receiver. It is designed for recreational vessels using a PC computer with AIS-capable navigation software or RS232 compatible chartplotters, such as the Standard Horizon CP180 and CP300.
For a very simple, low-cost and easy-to-set-up PC-based AIS system, use the SR161, with the Sabrent USB to Serial Adapter. New in original box - $150.00

Key Features

When interference is detected on one receiving channel, the SR161 automatically switches to the alternate AIS channel
High-sensitivity AIS data reception
Line of sight reception similar to marine VHF reception distances
Very low power consumption
Receives AIS Class A and Class B vessel reports
Sends information to a PC via a serial interface
Ability to track and display information on multiple targets
Easy installation: connect a VHF antenna (not included), 12 volt

DC power and a serial cable to your PC
Can be used with your existing VHF marine radio antenna with an appropriate splitter
Can be used to consolidate incoming NMEA positional data from a GPS into a combined high-speed data stream on a single serial port.

Re: AIS Receiver

** Explanation or what we are listing ***
I may have failed to mention enough times that ALL of the stuff we are listing is from our boat and has been collected over the years when I could sail and cruise. My terminal cancer has ended all of that so we are trying to find a good home for the stuff. Since quite a bit of it is "old," even if it is in its original packaging, and possibly no longer available or made, we thought cruisers might be interested - especially if you had one and now would like to replace your broken one with an exact or near duplicate.
