Re: Boo TowBoatUS! They don't connect their own DSC
...Where's the AIS coming from?...
The 2150 sends AIS via NMEA to the RS232 end of the Bluetooth adapter, which broadcasts it to any Bluetooth enabled device that wants to listen.
...And yes, the area Towboat US skippers are not following the policy; no checks on DSC.
Sad that they do not follow their own advice! They've got a press release out that that says they'll do this, but they don't.
