Standard Horizon include AIS receiving in some of their VHF radios - excellent value IMO.

But it is receive only.

Depends on what systems you already have and what you want.
  • AIS-receiver only and no big name brand electronics: Go with a VHF that as it like Standard Horizon.
  • AIS-tranceiver, no big name brand electronics: Vesper Marine or Easytrx might be a nice option.
  • Big brand name electronics already installed: Check their product, the integration with the rest is probably worth the additional cost
  • Inflatable Kayak on a fishing lake: you don't want AIS-cream, you want ICE-cream
