Details

A Class B AIS transponder requires a dedicated GPS antenna (all Class B units must have their own internal GPS and can?t use an external feed for regulatory purposes) as well as a VHF antenna or suitable VHF-AIS antenna splitter. The GV30 is a combination VHF/AIS and GPS antenna with twin coax feeds (10m). It is fitted with a standard 1" threaded base so will mount onto a variety of deck, pole and rail attachments available from many 3rd party suppliers.

The 10m coax cables are terminated with a FME mini connectors which makes running the cable easy, as the connector is barely larger than the 5mm cable. We then supply suitable adaptors for the TNC and BNC connectors on our AIT2000.

The GV30 is just 190mm high and 75mm in diameter. Despite its compact dimensions, it offers very good performance as it is specifically tuned to 162MHz (AIS frequency). The GV30 is also available with the AIT2000 as a bundle.

Features:

  • Supplied with 2 x 10m cable tails fitted with mini connectors for easy cable installation
  • Standard 1" threaded base for compatibility with a variety of 3rd party mounts
  • Supplied with TNC (GPS) and BNC (AIS) adaptors
  • Under 200mm high for low profile installation

Researchers Find Link Between Forest Fires And Health

Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley are figuring out when it comes to forest fires, sometimes you’ve just got to let it burn. Gabrielle Boisramé, a hydrologist with the university, and a team of fellow researchers wanted to figure out if the standard practice of fire suppression would have any impact on the flow of water through the forest. To do so, they used the Illilouette Creek basin of Yosemite National Park as the setting for a natural experiment. In that specific plot, when lightning strikes on dry, hot days and starts a fire, land managers let it burn out on its own, rather than suppress the blaze. Park employees adopted this practice in the area in the 1970s and have stuck with it since then.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.
