This high quality AIS transponder from Comar Systems on the Isle of Wight is an important element in the safety of yachtsmen.  In addition to gathering information concerning other vessels for display on your PC it also broadcasts the details of your own vessel enabling you to be seen by local shipping and enabling them to contact your yacht using DSC if necessary.  Comar confirm that the unit operates very well with a conventional VHF antenna - with little measurable benefit in using a specially tuned unit.  Height is important however and to operate at the masthead without interfering with your marine VHF the EasySplit OCB splitter (shown above) is recommended.  We have set up this unit using a standard VHF antenna at the masthead and have received AIS data from vessels at a distance of over 20 miles.

Comar products give excellent performance this together with their compact and robust design makes them a popular choice for commercial applications.

Also see our special AIS/Splitter kit (below) which contains extra required cables.

The CSB200 AIS transponder is a sturdy compact unit 190mm x 120mm x 50mm

It uses a separate GPS antenna for fast and accurate position fixing and enabling the CSB200 transponder to be installed in any convenient location below decks.

Details are as follows:


automatic transmission of vessels own position, speed and heading
