Like new AIS receiver SR161 with USB to Serial port adapter included.
The SR161 is an AIS scanning receiver. It is designed for recreational vessels using a computer with AIS-capable navigation software or RS232 compatible chartplotters, such as the Standard Horizon or many Garmin chart plotters.
For a very simple, easy-to-set-up PC-based AIS system, use the SR161, with the Sabrent USB to Serial Adapter.
Single channel receiver that scans between the two AIS frequencies
When interference is detected on one receiving channel, the SR161 automatically switches to the alternate AIS channel
High-sensitivity AIS data reception
Line of sight reception similar to marine VHF reception distances
Very low power consumption
Receives AIS Class A and Class B vessel reports
Sends information to a PC via a serial interface
Ability to track and display information on multiple targets
Easy installation: connect a VHF antenna (not included), 12 volt DC power and a serial cable to your PC
Can be used with your existing VHF marine radio antenna with an appropriate splitter
Can be used to consolidate incoming NMEA positional data from a GPS into a combined high-speed data stream on a single serial port.
The SR161 can be used with many popular computer-based marine navigation packages. Any navigation package that can process NMEA VDM data from a serial port should work with the SR161.
