    Default Recommended for ais installer.

    Ive purchased a NASA ais engine 3 and would like someone local to Portsmouth to install it for me, any recommendations?

    It's a very simple DIY installation, the manual has the connection details.

    It's some years since I fitted one, but I seem to recall that it didn't come with a lead to connect to my plotter. I had to buy a plug and solder the lead. Whilst to some of us it's easy, others are not necessarily technically minded and making a lead isn't easy for them. I have helped quite a number of people out who can't get their head around connecting TX to RX connecting radios to plotters etc. All supplied with leads.

    Do you also have a VHF antenna splitter or separate pushpit antenna?
    Are you going to display the output on a Chart Plotter or a PC?

    The issue I have is it doesn't connect direct to the plotter the plotter is above the companion way entrance and the wiring all comes down inside to a bus bar? The boat had this same ais installed and removed by a previous owner so it should be a fairly simple install for someone who knows what there doing
