Recording AIS data

Is it possible to record AIS data received into a log file using OpenCPN? I've recently purchased a dAISy AIS receiver and have connected it successfully to OpenCPN. While it is great for viewing current AIS transmissions, I haven't come across a way to record the data that it is receiving into a file (ideally a .csv file) Any help or direction would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Recording AIS data

The VDR plug-in.
You will find it at
It misses timestamps and replaying will not give exactly the same photo time wise .
Nethertheless "the tool" for this purpose.

Re: Recording AIS data

Also there is a file stored that contains a complete list of unique AIS ships that have been seen. This list helps with ship's name when just the MMSI number was available. See the AIS section of the manual for location.
