Smart Radio SR161 AIS Receiver Quick Overview

SR161 AIS receiver is a high performance, single channel AIS receive only unit that enables the reception of AIS information from suitably equipped vessels at a fraction of the cost of a conventional AIS transponder but at the same receiving performance of type approved class A ais transpoders.

SR161 Features

The SR161 AIS receiver installation is quick and simple, requiring only the connection to a VHF aerial (or splitter) and a computer. Combined with marine navigation software, you can display any AIS equipped vessel within VHF range which is typically up to 50 nautical miles. The SR161 AIS receiver is compatible with any software or hardware based chatrtplotter system capable of accepting standard NMEA 0183 AIS sentences.
