SPL1500 Antenna Splitter VHF/AIS

An AISreceiver or transponder requires a VHF antenna, but Digital Yacht’s SPL1500AIS-VHF antenna splitter allows an existing antenna to be used for both the AISand VHF (DSC). Unlike most simple splitters, it can also be used with a class Btransponder system and it incorporates special circuitry to ensure safeoperation of the two transmitting devices.

The unithas three simple connections - one input for the main VHF antenna and thenoutputs for the AIS receiver/transponder and another for the DSC VHF. Itutilizes Digital Yacht’s ZeroLoss™ technology, to ensure the verybest possible reception and transmission from all devices. Most importantly itis also fail safe, so should the unit ever stop working or lose power, it willnot affect the main VHF operation. Until now, Digital Yacht, have recommended adedicated antenna for a receiver or transponder.  However, with the newthis new ZeroLoss™ technology, we can now offer a solution that greatlysimplifies installation whilst maintaining performance.

The unit iswaterproof and matches the aesthetics of the current AIT1500, so can easily beintegrated into any vessel. It is suitable for operation on 12V or 24V systemsand features three status LEDs that show the unit is powered correctly and whenthe AIS or VHF transmits.


  • Enables anexisting VHF antenna to be used for both the standard VHF and AIS system
  • ZeroLoss technology for exceptional performance
  • Works withall Class B transponders and receivers
  • Suppliedwith power cable, PL259-PL259 cable assembly and BNC-BNC cable assembly foreasy installation (all cables 0.75m long)
  • 12V or 24V 0peration and low power consumption
  • Fail safeoperation
  • Same sizeand design as the AIT1500
  • Makesinstallation of an AIS receiver or transponder very quick and simple
  • Saves onadditional antenna clutter

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
