A friend did ask me if it would be possible to write a plugin for programming the static voyage data in a class A AIS
tranceiver from OCPN.
This data can be changed by sending a simple nmea
sentence to the AIS
1 x.x Type of ship and cargo category, 0 to 255
2 x.x Maximum present static draught, 0 to 25.5 metre
3 x.x Persons on-board, 0 to 8191
4 c--c Destination
, 1-20 characters
5 hhmmss.ss Estimated time of arrival at destination
6 xx Estimated day of arrival at destination, 00 to 31 (UTC)
7 xx Estimated month of arrival at destination, 00 to 12 (UTC)
8 x.x Navigational status, 0 to 15
9 x.x Regional application flags
, 0 to 15
Can I send this message from my (to be written PI) to the AIS or is it blocked by the connection filters?
