AIS REPORTS:Vessel Name
NEW AND IMPROVED:Dual Stage RF Input Protection
Receiver Sensitivity of -113dbm
The rugged, industry standard SL161R has now been improved; incorporating
dual stage RF input protection to provide superior protection against
near lightning strikes and high power transmitters. In addition, with
a receiver sensitivity of -113dbm the SM161R-2 is even better than the
industry-leading SL161R. An Automatic Identification System, or AIS, has
become an indispensable tool for navigation and safety at sea. Information
gathered by the RadarPlus is more detailed than radar and enables the
everyday boater to see what's coming long before it is in line of sight.
