Re: VHF AIS radios

I'm very happy with the Standard Horizon GX 2150, a terrific radio even without the AIS... I'd choose it over an Icom anyday, largely due to the fact that the Icom connectors for a cockpit remote mic are absolute pieces of crap, guaranteed to fail over time...

I have no interest whatsoever in "networking" my systems, so the 'old-fashioned' NMEA 0183 doesn't bother me at all...
