My search for this came up empty, although I'm sure it's been discussed. My solar panel is only 100w/5.7a (optimum current), and it would be really convenient to bundle the solar cables with the ais and vhf antenna's (and some of the Seatalk-ng cables as well). What is the latest word on running those things together? Would there be any interference in any of the signals by doing that?

I took Maine Sails advice and got the Genasun gv-10 controller. The cabling in question is mostly the Seatalk-ng for one gps antenna, and I believe a smaller diameter (maybe rg-8?) for the passive gps antenna going to the ais unit. I can separate them if it's at all an issue..

It's actually not radio antenna cable- GPS lines (one is seatalk ng, the other is some smaller diameter coax cable, which I think is rg-8). The juice going through the solar cables is small enough (per the panel ratings, I've not tested them yet) that I think would be ok as MS says..
