You guys from AIS HUB are well placed!
Nobody owes you anything!
It is well known that due to volunteers you have a free base station! Have you tried to invest in the construction of a base station and pay expenses yourself?
What can you offer worthwhile in return?
Recently I dealt with AIS HUB wanted them (for free) to transfer data from their AIS server (based on NMEA Router), which has been broadcasting in MT for three years now.
Could not accept my data transfer! In MT, everything is transmitted, they do not, maybe such specialists. They correspond in correspondence for a very long time!
In general, I would like to have in OCPN the ability to create a virtual AIS transponder for transmission
to any service.
As well as receiving AIS data in exchange with this service.
Something similar was done at MT.
Eternal memory to the developer of NMEA Router!
