yes the new model appears to multiplex dsc and ais. see also Best AIS receiver for the buck
would this have saved the duck boat though? I wonder why they didn't issue mayday after getting no response on ch 13 from tug
I never said it would have saved them - just that I did not want to become a similar tragedy. AIS can help if you sail in a region with a lot of commercial traffic in close confines.
FYI, I posted a "secret link" to the new GX2150 manual over on the thread you linked above:
