Actually, NMEA 0183HS is not a serial bus
, but just regular RS-422/232, but with a higher baud rate than the normal NMEA 0183 connection.

Uh, ya, me thinks that something is lost in translation...
Bottom line is that this can output NEMA 0183HS sentences. NEMA 0183HS is a serial bus. Also realize that this unit is an AIS RECEIVER ONLY
. (Which means that you can see them, but they can't see you.)
ActiSense has a serial bus to USB gateway that you can learn about here
. It will enable you to connect this radio to your laptop chartplotter.
I have no affiliation with either ActiSense or Standard Horizon... but I know that ActiSense Tech Support does venture into these forums.
I would be very interested if, and when, a manufacturer comes out with a similar radio that transmits and
receives AIS data, and even more interested if it used NEMA 2000.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
