Well, ignoring the fact that the USCG in the Port of Miami has been doing heavy testing with AIS and tracking...and publicly stated that basically they are overwhelmed almost all the time and find it nearly useless?
Yeah, right, you try telling every kid with a SkiDoo to install AIS on it, and then figure out a way to maintain it in operation.
It makes me think we'll all need to buy surplus weather balloons (aka The Prisoner) stick transponder in 'em, and them have a protest "float".
Or better yet, fly to the nearest jihadi and stick an AIS in HIM. this business of flagging all the sheep in order to watch the wolves, gets old fast.
