Re: AIS-B questions

Splitters are fundamentally bad, bordering on evil. You can make them work but the implications are really ugly. Reduced receive sensitivity, failure modes that can fry all your gear that share the antenna, missed packets, reduced transmit range, ...

Do yourself a favor and stick a dedicated AIS VHF antenna somewhere easy and convenient, like the pushpit.
