The Vesper Marine SP160 Splitter has higher performance than any other AIS splitter, whether it's used with an AIS receiver or transponder. It’s also been designed to be used with other manufacturer's AIS receivers and transponders making it very versatile.
One easy to install junction box
This new splitter provides a convenient and intelligent junction box for VHF, AIS and AM/FM break out points. Using the SP160 allows AIS transponders or AIS receivers to be easily installed with a single coaxial cable run to each device and only one cable to your shared VHF antenna.
Outstanding receive performance
The unique design of the SP160 means it doesn't have the signal loss associated with other AIS splitters ensuring you can achieve full performance from your VHF radio and your Vesper Marine WatchMate or XB-8000 (or other AIS receiver or transponder).
Improves AIS receive range
The SP160 improves AIS receive range by providing amplification to the AIS signal resulting in much higher AIS sensitivity - especially useful for receiving the growing number of 2W Class B AIS transceivers.
