The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a monitoring system for all types of shipping, useful for navigation safety with difficult meteorological conditions (fog or night navigation.) The AIS system operates on 2 expressly dedicated VHF channels (161.975 and 162.025 MHz) and allows the user to receive real time information about the traffic in the surrounding area. Quark has designed and manufactured a range of AIS products specifically for the special VHF frequencies used by AIS equipment.
Includes a 5m RG5 8U Co-axial cable which connects using a male BNC connector to the VHF/AIS receiver of your choice. The whip is partially sprung to provide increased flexibility and durability and is coated to reduce corrosion. Ideal for outdoor applications needing a sturdy, movable antenna. Suitable for boats and other vehicles.
