    Antenna Information:

    • An existing VHF antenna can be used on its own or an antenna splitter can be used to share one VHF antenna between the VHF/DSC radio and AIS receiver
    • While transmitting on the VHF radio, some interruption of incoming AIS signals may be seen
      • Since AIS broadcasts from each ship are repeated every few seconds, this is not normally noticeable
      • Alternatively, use a dedicated AIS antenna will prevent interruption of signals to the AIS
    • As a general recommendation for any AIS noted antenna many prefer the Vesper VA159 AIS / VHF Whip Antenna because it offers the best of both worlds but only works with their splitter
