Re: Which AIS should I buy?

OK, I think I am getting somewhere. All the stuff rolled in and this weekend I redid the whole installation:

I replaced the 256 cable to the AIS antenna with RG8x. I also replaced the cable from...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

I agree with you, on both counts. Kerosene is actually a big step up from burning dung. (Although it is not only the developing world that uses kerosene on a large scale. Kerosene is the number-one...

Easily. In India alone 160 million households which is already close to a billion people.

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Nothing temperamental about kerosene. It is used by a billion people each days, and it is the traditional cooking fuel on yachts for a reason. People now prefer gas it because that's what they have...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Yeah, that's an idea.

Or I may just hang on to it, there may be a use in the future. Thanks.

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Oh well. You convinced me. Another order is on its way, actually three:

--Defender for RG8x coax (Ancor)

-- Allied for silver-plated Amphenol connectors and reducers (thanks for pointing out...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

No, I got the thing with the marinetraffic station link. The problem is that the website of one station here is down (404 error). Other stations work fine and give the equivalent information that you...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Oh boy! Looks like I did everything wrong -- except for NOT cutting off the coax! At least I now have the material to start afresh on both ends!

I will look at the wattage of the bigger soldering...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Good enough for me. Perhaps there is a slight odor, and some people are more sensitive to it than others (as for most things in life). I will place myself happily in the odor-challenged category.

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Thanks, Dave, for weighing in.

You may be up to something about the connections. I did use solder connectors (Amphenol), not crimp-ons, but I probably did a shoddy job at installation. In fact, I...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Oh, I waited for way more than that, an hour or so. So delay is unlikely to be the problem.

Makes sense what you say about them only seeing what my transponder transmits (or not :().

So,...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

The closest AIS target I could see on marinetraffic.com was a few (<3) miles away. Thanks for the info about how to find the receiving station. I looked at a target right now but it looks like the...

It's done!! Against my expectations, I have a properly working AIS installation as of this afternoon! (at least I think I do; read on!)

I hadn't really planned to do this but it was a gorgeous...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

My point is that you may not have experienced a well maintained and properly preheated stove or oven.

But don't take my word for it, here is what Good Old Boat has to say about it: "A...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Actually, I have to say that I like the little ritual of getting my kero stove going, waiting the 3 minutes while the alcohol preheats the burners. Reminds me that I am fortunate enough to be on my...

I do not doubt that there are individuals who are unusually sensitive to certain substances. Unfortunately, it sounds like your wife is one of them with regards to hydrocarbon fumes. Clearly, a kero...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

OP here. The big box with everything (XB8000, GX2000, hailer, RAM, cables) arrived. Now I have to put everything together. Will let you folks know how that goes.

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

We have been through that, too.

Kerosene has no odor if it is burned in the vaporized state, as is done in a properly heated burner.

I agree with you that it stinks when it is burned in a...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

True.

But you can change the burners in a pressurized alcohol stove which makes it a perfectly good kerosene stove.

We have been through this before many times. I will still say it again: IMHO...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

The Simrad RS35 is a different kettle of fish than the SH GX2000, it has an AIS receiver built-in. So it is more like the SH GX2150, with a similar price point (nearly twice as much as the GX2000). I...

Yes, indeed, your suggestion of the GX2000 made a huge difference.
