We are selling this antena that has never been used.
Price: €99 + VAT + Shipping costs (Official price in store is €533: http://www.serviceport.se/en/products/tv/terrestrial-tv/tv-antenna-nargentus.html). Let us know if you are interested. We are also selling some nice AIS transponders and receivers, if you are interested you can see it in our on-line shop: http://www.aisnautica.com
With the new AIS transceivers that can easily be connected to the computer via USB it is very easy to configure the static data that your ship will broadcast using AIS
If you have further questions on how to do it, please get in touch with us.
The ITU portal provides a webpage to find information about vessels, based on their MMSI:
The best free GPS tracking app for Android that we are aware of, OruxMaps, is currently preparing the launch of a new nautical version, that works with AIS
As you can read in this forum post http://www.oruxmaps.com/foro/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1627 there is a new version of OruxMaps that is focused on sailing requirements.
It has a list of on-line maps (OpenSea maps) and you can load your own, as explained in this manual.
Plus you can convert the on-line maps into off-line.
The most interesting part is that it decodes the AIS NMEA sentences that can be received via IP, USB or Bluetooth.
We are sure that this program will become a reference in the category of nautical mobile apps, since it has already become the best free app for trekking.
We are currently testing this app, that is currently in beta if you would like to get in touch with us please make use of the comments section below.
Is it possible to turn off an AIS transponder emission and use it just as a receiver?
Yes, it is possible, our new AIS class A and AIS class B transponders incorporate this feature. Just get in touch with us and we will advice you on the best model, or check out our on-line store:
From Ferrol, the land of the shipyards that built large oil tankers, and still do build ships and other marine crafts, we get the piece of news that a fantastic exhibition has just been presented.
It is called “GIGANTES”, which is the Spanish word for giants, referring to the large size of these tankers, built from 1964-1982.
See below the poster of the exhibition:

Below you can see some pictures of these beautiful and enormous oil tankers:
<h3>If you change the name or MMSI of your boat, or you acquire an AIS transponder from someone else, you will have to reprogram the transponder with the new data</h3>
The AIS system is based on confidence and accuracy. Data provided by the vessels using this system has to be accurate. Therefore, it is not possible to carry an AIS transponder with the wrong information. You may put at risk your safety and other ships’ safety as well, disregarding that you may be breaching the law.
- Type of vessel (pleasure craft or sailing vessel)
- Call sign
- Dimensions of ship – to nearest meter
- Location of positioning system’s (e.g., GPS) antenna on board the vessel – in meters aft of bow and meters port or starboard
(this is the standard static data for AIS class B transmission)
We hope this information was useful. Please get in touch with us if you have a further interest on this matter.
